Robert Kaufman Essex - 55% Linen - 45% Cotton

While 100% linen fabrics can be slightly challenging to sew due to the wobble, the cotton content in this fabric makes it easier to sew - especially if you are looking to get a sharp corner when piecing quilts or sewing a collar. That being said, this fabric exhibits the benefits of linen - lending a slight drape to the fabric and a touch of luster.

Linen responds well to natural dyes. The linen soaks up the dye a bit more than cotton, so when dyed, due to the combination of fibers, the color has depth and nuance. The fabrics labelled as PFD, white, and natural are very popular with natural dyers.

This fabric's weight lends itself nicely to a wide variety of projects: pants, shirts, dresses, home-wares such as quilts, pillow covers, duvet covers, place mats, napkins, tote bags - nearly anything! Please note that the Arroryo and Euclid collections listed below, due to the screen-printing process, are slightly thicker, so would work best as more utilitarian objects such as pillow covers, tote bags, aprons, etc.
