Description:

A classic denim bright blue chambray. Made from a blend of cotton and linen, the linen content gives some this cloth added texture and slub. It would make a beautiful Etta.

You could use this for many of our patterns, tops, dresses, shirts and light-weight trousers.

This cloth is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Bantam, Heron, Strides, Saltmarsh and Curlew.

  • 147cm wide.
  • 4oz, 136gsm.
  • 30% linen/70% cotton.
  • Wash at 30 degrees, with a non bio detergent and on a gentle spin cycle.
  • Iron on low, do not bleach.
  • Tumble dry on a low heat.
  • Country of origin, Italy.
  • As all computer monitors show colours differently, we recommend ordering a sample of the cloth to check it is the right colour and weight for your project.
  • Thread match Gutermann Sew All 64.

Linen is naturally stain resistant, does not pile, and is moth repellent. It is easy to wash as it can sustain high temperatures, is has very little if no 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 fiber's 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 say cotton.
