Classic Black - Crisp Linen & Cotton

per half metre
Fabric Code: J2e16

Classic Black - Crisp Linen & Cotton is just as its name suggests a fabulously crisp, cool, breathable linen and cotton blend fabric. Black is a classic "go-to" present in most of our wardrobes. 

Made in Europe by a company of world renown, with centuries of expertise and tradition.  This blended fabric gives you the benefits of both wonderful natural fibres.  Cotton blended with linen produces a softer, finer fabric that is easier to iron. Linen and cotton have been used for centuries because of their beneficial properties; cool and breathable, get softer with washing & wear and linen is impervious to moths and resists dirt and stains. Linen will not form lint or pill and can be washed at high temperatures with only moderate shrinkage. The characteristic slubs (once viewed as a fault) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric. 

Classic Black is stable, soft and has the subtle lustre of quality fabric. This light (but not flimsy) classic black fabric will form crisp details; pockets with flaps, epaulettes, collars and cuffs. Used in quantity it will form feminine gathers, pleats, pintucks and ruffles. So all you have to do is decide what to make. Mix and match key pieces of perfectly put together bespoke makes in Classic Black for a superb summer layered-chic linen look. Its light-medium weight and soft drape make it the ideal candidate for a plethora of uses from the stylish to the practical.

Create safari-style dresses with pockets and epaulettes,  neat skirts, cargo style shorts, smart tailored pants, crisply tailored jackets or oversized shirt style jackets and coatigans.

Merchant and Mills and The Makers Atelier have excellent patterns suitable for classic linen styles, use clean simple lines and you will have garments that become perennial favourites.
