Middleton Blue Cross Weave Washed Linen Woven
PRICED AND SOLD BY THE 1/2 YARD
EXAMPLE: TO ORDER 2.5 YARDS ENTER 5 IN THE QUANTITY BOX
Rich color saturated cobalt blue and black are cross woven in creamy gorgeous washed linen..the cross weaving gives a beautiful fine texture and depth, and the final wash finish renders the fabric soft and smooth. A beautiful light/mid dress or shirting weight linen, heavier than hanky weight, airy and opaque with no lingerie show through. Has an appealing hand, fine grained texture and supple drape...will be a pleasure to sew and wear. The weight is right for a shirt, blouse, top, tunic, dress or skirt, and you could use it for soft pants too. This is one of those linens that would take well to pleating/crinkling.
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. 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.
