This popular fabric from Robert Kaufman is very soft to the touch due to the cotton content of the fabric. It has an even softer touch compared to fabric that is 100% linen but still has the same look - the mix of fibres makes it very breathable. We have two colours available 'eggplant' and 'olive'. 


We would recommend this for shirts, tops and dresses. This would be perfect for the Merchant and Mills 'Factory Dress' but also ideal for quilting or soft furnishing.    



  • 45% Cotton 55% Linen

Wash & Care Guide

Cotton should be machine washed at 30 degrees and can be tumble dried on a low heat setting. We recommend a hot steamy iron to press - we recommend testing a small piece first to be sure.


It's worth noting:

While every care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the colours depicted in our images, please be aware that due to monitor resolution, lighting, photo processing software and other factors it is almost impossible to represent colour to 100% accuracy.
