European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. A subtle shade grey with a hint of lilac.
This slubby linen is made from special tow yarn which gives the cloth its nice raw textured appearance. It is the irregular character of the fibre that lends a lovely natural charm to this pure linen. It is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric.
Mellea can be used in the home for loose covers, curtains, cushions, and light upholstery. It is also a great weight for trousers or light weight slouchy jackets.
This would work well for the Strides and Haremere coat and in our Workbook, or a sleeveless Trapeze dress.
We have 7 colours in this 300gsm linen range, to see these please click on ‘alternative fabrics’.
145cm wide, 300gsm or 8.8oz.
Wash at 30 degrees with a non bio detergent. 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.
Martindale rub test for upholstery – 15,000 rubs (loose covers, occasional chairs)
If you are using this linen for curtains we recommend using a lining to prevent fading.
