Linen is one of our favourite fabrics here at Blackbird HQ and for good reason! Woven from flax fibres, this natural fabric is easy to sew, breathable and it ages beautifully with each wash. Linen is also incredibly versatile and is suitable for a wide range of garments from structured pants to flowy dresses.
Our extensive linen range includes a variety of weights and washes, so we’ve put together this handy little guide for picking the perfect linen for your next me-made project!
Our Lightweight Washed Linen range is, you guessed it, the lightest linen of the bunch! This gorgeous linen is finished with an antique wash to give it a beautifully rustic, rumpled texture and a soft, relaxed feel. With a billowy drape and a light, airy hand, this linen is perfect for warm weather tops, dresses, and skirts. Depending on the colour, this linen ranges from opaque to semi-opaque, so be sure to keep this in mind if you’re choosing a lighter shade! We love this fabric for the Closet Core Cielo Top and the Sew Liberated Hinterland Dress.
