This stretch linen is for 48% made from cotton, 25% from linen, 24% viscose and 3% elastan, making this fabric a combination of natural fibres, synthetic fibres, and natural artificial fibres.
The fabric has a nice, soft touch, is sturdy yet supple, and has a good stretch to it. The structure looks rough, accentuating the natural character of the cotton and linen fibres.
In order to give your garment a long life, it’s important to pay attention to the washing process: To start with, only wash clothing when it’s dirty. Always sort your laundry by type of fabric and colour. Use the right laundry detergent and the right amount. Don’t stuff your machine with too much laundry. Turn your clothes inside out (also for ironing). Avoid the tumble-drier if possible, it uses a lot of energy and is generally not good for you clothes.
Because of the different types of fibres, it’s best to wash this fabric at maximum 40° on a delicate (wool/silk) program. Don’t dry it in the tumble-drier, but hang it to dry. Iron the garment inside out and on a warm temperature.
