Linen fabrics are a natural fibre from the flax plant. Extremely breathable and with excellent moisure wicking properties, they are great for garment sewing. Linen fabrics typically have a looser weave and take on a distinctive crumpled look. Linen is often blended with rayon/viscose or cotton. Use linen for a wide range of dressmaking projects including tops, dresses and trousers. Pre-before sewing to remove any natural shrinkage.
