12.5oz French Cotton/Linen Denim

$59.00 / yard

A very special denim made in a tiny mill in eastern France by a craftsman weaver. He handles all the steps from sourcing the yarns, preparing them to weaving and finishing.

  • 80% cotton / 20% linen. The denim has a white selvedge.
  • 425gsm or 12.5 oz/yd²
  • Approximate fabric width: 52" [134cm] wide.

This cloth has beautiful speckles and we would say it is a grey blue. The denim has been pre washed but we recommend doing your own pre washing too.

Washing denim: We recommend pre washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:
  • Wash your denim on its own for the first wash.
  • Sink your denim in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the denim already wet.
  • If you can break up your denim fabric into half this will help.
  • For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with a low spin.
  • If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
  • Do not tumble dry.

When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.
