Miss Lilac 185 European Laundered Linen

European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. Soft lilac.

The cloth is a light/medium weight linen that works with so many of our patterns. It sews up gathered dresses, skirts, shirts and loose fitting trousers beautifully. 

Produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric.

Eco-credentials:
The 185 range is a European linen produced in a mill run on green energy.

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.
