100% Irish Linen 56 inches wideLinen cloth was woven of flax fiber in many grades and weaves. Used in every aspect of living from clothing, to household needs to furnishings to the shroud made for the corpse, linen was so common that a tax was proposed as a source of easy revenue on the coarser sorts being imported into the US towards the end of the 18th century. Our linen is woven of a very fine yarn with a smooth finish, crisp hand and nicely sheer. It is suitable for all fine sewing such as caps, kerchiefs, very fine shirts and shifts, tuckers, sleeve ruffles and baby clothes.
