Sectional Slipcover in Rustic Linen Cotton

Gray Line Linen and Cotton Slipcover for Sectional

Upholstery Linen and Cotton in Color Oatmeal from Gray Line LinenIf you like the idea of a relaxed linen slipcover but don’t want a lot of wrinkle this linen and cotton fabric is a good alternative.

It’s a thick yet supple cloth featuring a tiny box texture that shows off both the un-dyed flax and natural cotton color.  Slubs and nubs are part of its charm. The look is more rustic than refined — think casual farmhouse style. 

Here’s what you can expect when working with this Upholstery Linen in color Oatmeal from Gray Line Linen:

  • High shrinkage. It shrinks 5″ on a one yard length and 3″ on the width. Pre-shrink your yardage in jumbo size washers and driers before you make your slipcover and you’re good to go.
  • Heavy weight.  Sewing multiple layers will require an industrial machine. For projects with simple seams and few layers this fabric will feed through a home sewing machine just fine.
  • Slight give. Fabric eases out a bit when sewing and probably will to the same with wear. Start with a snug slipcover fit and control the give as you sew for best results.
