Merchant and Mills Black 160gsm EU Linen-$56.00/metre
A European laundered linen, which is woven from a high quality Italian yarn and tumbled at the mill for softness. It is also yarn dyed, which it gives the cloth a real depth and richness of colour. Black.
This linen is similar to a handkerchief linen, it has a fine weave but does have a soft slubby texture. It would make the perfect shirt! It would also be great for dresses with some fullness, tops, pyjamas, and lightweight breezy curtains. It is suitable for the Bantam and Heron patterns in our Workbook.
It is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric.
