Black Stretch Linen-2 units (1 yard)sally
Classic & basic black in a beautiful linen/rayon/spandex blend. Mid-weight, crosswise stretch, opaque so no lingerie show through, with a softly textured hand and drape.The rayon/linen/spandex blend adds the best of all fibers -- the rayon adds softness and drape with less wrinkling, the touch of spandex adds both stretch and drape. A wonderful spring into summer fabric for a light jacket, shirt, dress, pants, capris, vest, tunic or a man's shirt. Makes perfect pants!
Pre-treat by hand laundering or machine wash gentle and air dry. You can toss linen in the dryer if you want all-over wrinkles, but always pre-test a sample; some fabrics respond well, others not so well. Test Test Test. Some say that if you iron the linen before washing it does not wrinkle as much — definitely worth a test. After laundering hand wash or machine launder gentle and air dry. I like to take my linens out of the laundry while still very wet, hang on a hanger and pull and smooth the seams and hems, allowing the weight of the water to do the work, then touch up with an iron -- or not. I never put blacks/darks in the dryer, it can fade the color.
