This base linen is part of the Potter & Co ‘Lola’ range. Here is a bit of information on the base from Potter & Co:
Lola is one of our longest running linens. This cloth is a simple plain weave linen. An aero wash has been applied after production for a softer feel. This is where fabric is pushed through tubes with high air pressure to soften and preshrink the linen. This fabric is solid dyed and each colour in the range is developed and milled exclusively for us.
This quality will soften increasingly with wash and wear - like all linen it gets better with time…
European Flax yarn, Oeko-Tex 100 Standard.
All our linens meet the Oeko-Tex standard, we only use mills which are certified and checked yearly. Simon the owner of Potters has been in the business for 25 plus years and built up a solid relationship with the mills we work with and sourcing agents. We really pride ourselves on this as we know we can trust the mills we use for quality and standard.
Lola is perfect for dresses, tops and skirts ect... With lighter colours this may need to be lined depending on the customers preference.
Hand wash in Warm water. Do not Soak, Bleach or Wring. Dripe Dry or Dry without delay away from direct Heat. Warm Iron. Dry Cleanable.
Our linen has minimal shrinkage about 2-3% if any. This because of the high quality yarn and the different washes we apply during production you will find they don’t shrink at all. But as a precaution we ask all our customers to wash there fabric before sewing, just in case…
All the flax yarn we sourced to produce our linen is from France and Belgium and sent to China to be milled.
