This linen fabric is softened with a method called 'Mill Wash', Which is the most sustainable way to soften linen since there is no use of chemicals, enzymes, or a huge amount of water consumption in the softening process.
It has a perfect medium weight for all kinds of garments as well as different accessories. Wash before you sew, because although it has been washed already it can still shrink 3-5% in length and 2-3% in width. With every wash, this fabric will get softer.
The flax/linen fibers have the European Flax certificate, which means that they come from flax production in northern France, Belgium, or the Netherlands, where flax grows under optimal conditions, completely natural and environmentally responsible. Next to that, it’s OEKO-TEX 100 certified.

From these small pieces, you can determine the color, type of weave/knit, and feel of the fabric. The samples are sent in an envelope through regular mail (PostNL). You will not be able to track the envelope. Samples are shipped within 1-2 workdays.
Shipping in NL is free of charge. At checkout please choose the free shipping option ‘Only Samples’. If you want to have the samples shipped to Belgium or Germany shipping costs are €2,-.
