Best Mettler color matchFoxy Red #0634

European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. 

The 185 gsm dress weight linen is ideal for all dress making. It is a great match for all Merchant & Mills patterns, dresses, tops and loose fitting trousers.

It is suitable for the all of the patterns in The Merchant & Mills Workbook.

This linen also works well for lighter curtains for a casual less refined look.

It is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric. The 185 linen collection is woven in a mill run on green energy and is Oeko-Tex certified.

  • 100% linen
  • 143cm wide, 185gsm or 5.5oz.
  • 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.
  • If you are using this linen for curtains we recommend using a lining to prevent fading.
  • This linen is Oeko-Tex certified.

More about linen:

Linen is naturally stain resistant, does not pill, and is moth repellent. It is easy to wash as it can sustain high temperatures, is has very little if any 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.

Eco Credentials:

Flax is a strong plant best grown in northern Europe. It needs little or no fertilisers nor pesticides, and due to the local climate, little extra water.

The Advisory Commission Report to the European Parliament stated that flax cultivation has positive effects on eco-system diversity as it allows for an “environmental pause”.

One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tonnes of CO2. Every part of the plant is used, what isn’t used to produce linen can be used to make linseed oil, paper, cattle feed or even soap.

Linen is therefore almost naturally organic. It is completely biodegradable, recyclable and due to its natural absorbency, it requires less dye than cotton. Linen therefore scores high on the ecological chart.
