Common weight linen

$ 28.00

We offer this mid-weight linen in two shades, either completely unbleached—the grey brown color of flax, or a bright creamy white. Textiles like this were widely used during the 18th and 19th centuries for household linens, clothing, curtains, embroidery ground, etc. As in the period, they are somewhat stiff when new. Alternating use with washing and pressing will soften the linen fiber while tightening the weave, resulting in a sturdy fabric that can be relied on for everyday use.

As is true of most modern fabric, neither is available with a true woven selvage, but variably have either a fringe selvage or a tuck selvage. Contact us for a swatch by mail.

100% linen, unbleached or creamy white
