We have two new colours of our popular Tencel/linen range for the autumn/winter season. Flint Green is a beautiful sage green with a hint of yellow. Flint Green was actually the shade of one of our Double Gauze cottons which has now sold out but we really loved that shade. It looks especially good with navy and is a bit more of a punchy green compared to something like Mori. Josephine is an update of London Town, which was more of a brick red, Josephine is knocked back and more chalky, very similar to Appolina in our 8oz sanded twill range. We hope you love these two new shades as much as us, we spend a lot of time getting our colours just right working with the mills usually on several rounds of tests.
Tencel/linen is a good choice for patterns that require some drape, but is certainly easier to work with than 100% Tencel. It’s 6oz, perhaps the golden weight for dressmaking projects – a good amount of body to keep fullness and shape within a garment. Below are some suggestions on patterns which are ideal for our Tencel/linen range.
