Millie Laundered Linen

Merchant & Mills

$ 44.50




European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. This linen is yarn dyed, meaning the yarns are dyed before being woven.

This linen is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric.

A rose pink with a hint of orange and natural gingham. Suitable for dresses, tops, loose trousers, and slouchy jackets. Would make a fine Ellis dress.

  • 100% linen, Oeko-Tex certified
  • Approximate fabric width: 50" [148cm] wide
  • Dress weight - 200gsm or 5.9 oz/yd²
  • Pattern repeat 1" [2.5cm]
  • Square size 1/2" [1.2cm]
  • If you are using this linen for curtains we recommend using a lining to prevent fading.

 

Care: 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.

 

More about linen:

Linen is naturally stain resistant, does not pile, and is moth repellent. It is easy to wash as it can sustain high temperatures, is has very little if no shrinkage and is very strong.

It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, hypo allergenic and thermoregulating, it will also absorb up 20%  moisture before feeling damp.

As the linen fibres have low elasticity (which causes it to crease) it will wear in any areas that are repeatedly folded in the same place for a long time, however it does have much better abrasion resistance than cotton.
