Composition: 55% Linen, 45% Organic Cotton

Care: Fabric will shrink slightly with first washing. Machine wash with like colours, cold water is best. Tumble dry regular, or hang dry.
A woven organic cotton and linen blend. I use this fabric for making pants, tea towels, cloth napkins, and re-useable gift bags. Would also be a great choice for doing any sort of patchwork (dyed scrap fabric pieces can be found here ). It is both soft and durable, with less drape than 100% linen.
It can be hard to source natural and organic fabrics. Especially when you are a home sewist and looking for something simple to get started with and not wanting to make a large investment. When I started buying new fabrics, I did a lot of research about what fibres I wanted to work with. I use hemp, organic cotton, and linen.
All the fabrics for sale here are ones that I use reguarly. I only offer cuts up to 3 metres as they are intended for smaller home projects. Undyed fabrics dye beautifully with fibre reactive, or natural dyes. My friends over at Mukoka Tye Dye have some super sweet ice dye kits to help guide you through the process of dyeing your own fabric.
