Merchant and Mills Tencel/Linen - Olivia-$44.00/metre
This is beautifully versatile cloth that works for so many of our patterns, it has a soft fluid drape with a matte finish. The small amount of linen gives the fabric more body and a slightly slubby finish. It also makes it easier to work with!
Suitable for dresses, tops, trousers and even lightweight jackets. This cloth is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Bantam, Heron, Strides, Curlew and Saltmarsh.
- Warm tan/brown.
- 85% Tencel. 15% linen.
- 154cm wide.
- There is 6% shrinkage with the first wash.
- Wash at 30 degrees on a delicate cycle, with a low spin setting, using non bio detergent. Do not tumble.
- If you can, submerge the fabric in water before washing to prevent any white lines from appearing.
Tencel is made from wood pulp that’s harvested from tree farms that are sustainably managed and traceable. The fiber production itself is more eco-friendly than cotton production due to its’ closed-loop process. This means that up to 99% of the water and solvents used are recycled and reused.
Fabrics are sold per 25cm, one piece is therefore 25cm. If, for example, you want to order 1m, than select 4 in the quanitity.
Note: We recommend that you pre-wash your fabric.
Please note: While we have tried to represent the colours of our fabrics as accurately as possible - each computer monitor may show the colours differently, therefore we cannot guarantee colour representation. You may prefer to order a sample first.
