WHAT IS LINEN?
Linen is a cool, breathable, strong, natural fibre, traditional fabric. Available in a range of weights, weaves, designs and colours, linen is a perennial favourite. Fabworks is proud to offer linen and linen blend fabrics that have been woven in Ireland and Italy. You will find plenty of suitable garment recommendations within each individual product description.
WHAT IS RAMIE?
Ramie, known under various other terms, is a clever fibre, taken from a plant of the nettle family - but without the sting! Ramie is cool and breathable, resistant to shrinkage, insect damage and mildew, it is a super-strong fibre and holds its shape well! Often used as an alternative to Linen – the traditional linen look texture is super versatile, it’s our new favourite!
