Merchant & Mills Linen in Black

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

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 say cotton.



Sold in half meter increments and cut in a continuous length.
