This is beautifully versatile cloth that works for so many of our patterns, it has a soft fluid drape with a matte finish. The small amount of linen gives the fabric more body and a slightly slubby finish. It also makes it easier to work with!

This cloth has been left undyed ready to be naturally dyed.

Suitable for dresses, tops, trousers and even lightweight jackets. This cloth is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Bantam, Heron, Strides, Curlew and Saltmarsh.

  • 85% TENCEL™ Lyocell, 14% linen.

  • Wash cool on a delicate cycle with non-bio detergent and a gentle spin.
  • Submerge fabric in water before putting in the drum.

  • Shake out and dry flat.
  • The surface texture of Tencel will go more chalky and less sheeny once washed and lived in.
  • Never dry linen in direct sunlight as the colour can bleach and fade.
  • We recommend scouring and mordanting the fabric as part of the preparation before natural dyeing to get the best results.
  • 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.
More about this cloth

TENCEL™ Lyocell are cellulose fibers and are made dissolving wood pulp. They are durable, improve the wrinkle recovery rate of the fabric and produce a smooth drape with a silky-soft texture.

They contribute to fabric breathability that supports the body's natural thermal regulation and have a higher vapor uptake than cotton. TENCEL™ fibers are unfavorable for bacterial growth. Making it a good choice for those with sensitive skin. TENCEL™ is a trademark of Lenzing AG

Eco credentials

The process of TENCEL Lyocell production ameliorates much of its own environmental effects. TENCEL fibers are made from wood. However, manufacturing TENCEL Lyocell fibers requires less energy and water than cotton. The solvents used to turn the wood pulp into fibre are contained in a closed loop system, with a quoted recovery rate of 99%. As a botanic origin derived fibres, TENCEL Lyocell are also biodegradable.

Although it is dyed conventionally (which can be harmful to the environment), TENCEL™ fibers require a lot less dye than cotton. The manufacturers are actively striving towards greener, cleaner and more efficient production and are currently investing in new, renewable energy sources.
