MERCHANT AND MILLS • Phoebe Check Linen Fabric • Navy
From Merchant and Mills, Phoebe is a very sophisticated check. It’s a navy based linen with a beige and winter white check, to give you a sense of scale the pattern repeat is 10.5cm. Made from a European laundered linen which has been tumbled at the mill for softness. Linen is naturally stain resistant, does not pile, and is moth repellent. It is easy to wash as it can sustain high temperatures, is has very little if no shrinkage and is very strong. Oeko-Tex certified which means no harmful chemicals have been used.
It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, hypo allergenic and thermoregulating, it will also absorb up 20% moisture before feeling damp.
As the linen fibres have low elasticity (which causes it to crease) it will wear in any areas that are repeatedly folded in the same place for a long time, however it does have much better abrasion resistance than say cotton.
100% Linen • 150cm wide • 200gms
Price is per HALF metre. So, if you require 1.5 metres for example, you’ll need to enter 3 in the quantity box.
Merchant and Mills recommend that you machine wash this fabric at 30 or 40 degrees linen cycle with a mild detergent before you start your sewing project. And the really good news... it's been designed not to be ironed!
