Cotton, wool, hemp, silk…While there are several great fabrics available, only one stands out in a crowd – and that’s linen fabric.
When thinking of linen, certain words or phrases may come to mind like rich, natural, beautiful, eco-friendly, and extremely durable. With that said, it’s not hard to understand why linen is such a beloved fabric.
Once used as currency in ancient Egypt, pure linen fabric is one of the oldest, most sought-after fabrics in the world, adding a sense of luxury and charm to any apparel or home décor.
Our medium weight washed linen (6,50 oz -185 gsm) is an exquisite textile that truly enhances any home bedding. Often viewed as a premium material by professional designers, it has a wide range of properties, benefits, and uses like linen curtains or linen bed skirts. Outpacing cotton in the popularity race, pure linen is made from the fiber of the sturdy flax plant, giving it two to three times the strength of silk or cotton.
Although strong, it’s lightweight, breathable, and very soft. In fact, unlike many other fabrics, linen uncharacteristically softens as it ages and endures washes and wears. Over time, becoming supple in both touch and feel.
In general, linen is a fabric that can be maintained fairly easy. Not to mention it’s resistance to shrinkage, it’s ability to withstand high temperatures, and the fact that it’s machine washable (up to 140°F) and tumble dry safe.
Possessing a quiet elegance, our 100% pure linen fabric is of the highest quality, lending itself to an array of deeply rich and striking colors, as the fabric tolerates dye very well. This is a great benefit for those who have an expressive palate.
At Linenshed, we offer a full range of attractive hues to choose from. Sixteen (16) to be exact, including, but not limited to optic white, aubergine, green tea, icy blue, mustard, jet-black, salmon, and earth brown. Each and every one of our colors results in a beautiful sheen and high luster, allowing our customers to mix and match as they see fit – regardless of what the fabric will be used for.
