European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. Emerald green. 143cm wide. 185gsm or 5.5oz. The 185 dress weight linen is our go-to linen for all dress-making and also works well for lighter curtains for a casual less refined look. It is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric. Made by a mill that uses electricity supplied solely from renewable energy sources and OEKO Tex certified. We have lots colours in this 185gsm linen range. Wash at 30 degrees with a non bio detergent. Do not tumble. Shake out and dry flat. Linen will always seize up after washing but as soon as you start to use/wear it the fibres relax again. If you are using this linen for curtains we recommend using a lining to prevent fading.
#WHO MADE ME?
There are some brands that inspire creativity. Merchant & Mills is top on our list. Their purpose is to make (or more precisely get YOU to make) clothes, not fashion. In curating and designing patterns, fabrics and tools, they make our fingers itch to start deisgning, cutting and making. The two creators behind the brand are Carolyn Denham, who has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London and Roderick Field, a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery and keeps the look of the brand through his gorgeous product photos.
