TRY IT WITH:

It took us some time to find the perfect linen that meets our high-quality standards, so we're thrilled to launch this range at last! Meet the new medium-weight Core Collection Linen: made in Europe, OEKO STeP 100 Certified, and destined to be your new favourite every day, every way fabric. We’ve chosen a beautiful range of bright and pastel colours to ease us into spring, in a versatile mid-weight that works equally well for soft, casual looks and more tailored applications. This linen has been pre-softened/washed so it’s incredibly soft off the roll and will only get better with age and wear*. While it holds a crisp edge when pressed, it also has a deliciously springy drape and a pronounced, slightly rustic weave. Linen is naturally resilient, breathable, hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, and durable. It is incredibly easy to sew with and care for, not to mention delightful to wear due to its thermoregulating properties, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter. This linen will work for a wide variety of garments like casual jackets, tops, button-downs, dresses, jumpsuits and relaxed trousers. Fully opaque, it does not require a lining.

*To provide you with the most accurate fabric description, we also ran a test wash. We're happy to report that we didn't experience any colour bleeding or fading and that the fabric got even softer to the touch after only washing it once. Please scroll to the last picture to see the unpressed laundered linen! We love the inherent natural creases and crumples; they are what give linen its relaxed, soft feel.

Always pre-wash and/or pretreat fabric before sewing! It’s important to remove any chemical sizing applied during manufacturing, both so it’s safe to handle against delicate skin, and to avoid any residue that may accumulate on your iron. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric, since fabric often feels more crisp and stiff before it’s been washed. As a general rule, we recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them. 

Linen can withstand high heat when washing and drying. Choose warm or hot water when machine washing (choose a cooler temperature for colours). Tumble dry on hot, and remove when slightly damp to help eliminate wrinkles. Use a hot iron when pressing.

Yes!!

I was so excited when they launched this new line of linen and got several colors…and then I came back for more! This is a fantastic linen that is a dream to work with. I’ve already made a couple pairs of pajamas and planning a couple dresses and some Kalle shirts, too.

I’ve been waiting for this!

I have been waiting years for this fabric - literally! I bought a lovely dress pattern years ago, but as I live in an area with a dearth of decent fabric shops, that dress was never constructed.
Then one wonderful day the email announcing this gorgeous fabric arrived in my inbox! It arrived within days of ordering, and is even more beautiful than I imagined. This dress is going to be absolutely fabulous!
Core Fabrics is the best! Delivery is fast (and fabric elegantly wrapped and sealed in tissue), and all communication quickly addressed. Thank you!
