This 100% linen is a classic. The strong 13 oz weight is perfect for slipcovers. Wash and dry your yardage to bring out the natural beauty. Like all linen, this one gets softer and crumpled when laundered. I like that it doesn’t lint or get hairy when washed. Dark colors are subject to fading in the wash. Be sure to do a wash test on a 1 yard piece. Shrinkage: 4″ to 5″ on a one yard length, 3″ on the width.
After washed, Brazil takes on a casual look, floppy drape and softly crumpled texture. I like the 12 oz. weight. It feels substantial without being stiff or coarse. Works well for both tailored and loose fit slipcovers. Expect good coverage over most upholstery fabrics and colors. Shrinkage: 5″ on a one yard length, 4″ on the width. Slipcovers made in Brazil Linen: Karen’s chair and Pam’s chair
