Allsorts European Laundered Linen

Allsorts is a joyful mix of pink, orange, oat, black and grey/blue stripes.  The stripes run across the width of the fabric, from selvedge to selvedge, not parallel to.

European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. This linen is yarn dyed, meaning the yarns are dyed before being woven.

Suitable for dresses, skirts, tops, slouchy jackets and loose fitting trousers. It would also make the most beautiful pair of Winnie PJs!

Never dry linen in direct sunlight as the colour can bleach and fade.

Eco Credentials

Oeko-tex Standard 100

Flax is a strong plant best grown in northern Europe. It needs little or no fertilisers and due to the local climate, little extra water. It doesn’t really require many pesticides either as it can grow in poor quality soil. The Advisory Commission Report to the European Parliament stated that flax cultivation has positive effects on eco-system diversity as it allows for an “environmental pause”. One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tonnes of CO2. Every part of the plant is used, what isn’t used to produce linen can be used to make linseed oil, paper, cattle feed or even soap.

Linen is therefore almost naturally organic. It is completely biodegradable, recyclable and due to its natural absorbency, it requires less dye than cotton. Linen therefore scores high on the ecological chart.
