Carol Open-Weave Linen – Blue & White – 1/2 yard
Sometimes you want linen with drape (rayon/linen blends!), sometimes you want linen with stretch (linen jersey!) and sometimes you just want linen that feels like linen. This open-weave linen is just that – very Ace & Jig or Jaime and the Jones, I can see this making up into a gorgeous boxy T or oversized long-sleeve top like the LB pullover. Crisp and textured, the gorgeous crosshatch weaving throughout gives this such an amazing, varied look, and keeps this linen fairly wrinkle-resistant. (Psst: it's an open-weave fabric, so prepare to line/underline this if you're making a dress or trousers!)
Named after my bad-ass conservationist mom, the Carol Linen is the first in our reorderable collection. All fabrics ordered new from the mill will rank at least a C or higher on Made By's Environmental Benchmark. Linen, made from the flax plant, is biodegradeable and long-lasting (30% stronger than cotton!). Also, if it sells out I'll be able to reorder for at least a season.
The colour is a denim-blue & white weave, with the occasional speckled nub. So. Great.
