meetMILK Mara Linen Blend | Sold per half meter
Meet the gorgeous Tencel Linen blend called Mara. This luxurious fabric is woven with a thicker yarn that gives it a bit more texture and a bit of a roughened look. At the same time, this fabric is soft like butter.
This fabric is perfect for dresses, skirts, trousers, shirts, blouses, and even a light summer jacket. Although the fabric is fairly light (200 g/m2) it still has some fullness in the drape. As this fabric is woven a bit looser with thicker thread be sure to add some extra seam allowance when cutting and sewing your fabric: it can fray.
