A Homespun Linen Hemp/Flax Yardage 6 Yards x 22'' Blue Stripes # 9602
This fabric is at least 60 years old and possibly over 100 years old. These rolls were hand woven by the farmers wives and families during the long cold European Winters and originate from all over Europe. They were stored in the homesteads in large old chests until they were needed to make anything from clothes to grain sacks. We travel all over Europe on a monthly basis and have done so for the last 16 years. We get the opportunity to hand pick these wonderful unique linens from time gone by. We are possibly the biggest importer of this fabric into the USA. These rolls of linen have NOT BEEN WASHED and will need to be laundered in a warm cycle and air dried or carefully tumble dried. A nubbyish, slightly coarser, wheaty looking roll with 3 blue stripes in original condition that will need washing. These rolls are perfect for upholstery, pillows, cushions, bolsters, bags, curtains, shower curtains, etc, etc and are exceedingly durable. The more you wash them the softer they become. WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: These rolls are 100% machine washable!
I wash them on a regular, warm cycle and then air dry them (however you can also tumble dry them). Should you find any dirt present simply add Oxyclean or similar.
