Caring for your Fabric
I have used Libeco Linen exclusively for the past two years, primarily for silk shading. I have not found another linen comparable to it. The quality is superb and the delivery is impressive. In these times of back orders and slow shipments, I have never waited more than 8 days for my order and this is shipping from South Africa to the US. I strongly recommend this linen and this shop. You will not be disappointed.
I have just received my beautifully packaged Premium Linen fabric and it is a very fine, smooth fabric that is robust enough to take the weight of dense stitching. It has the feel of fine napery, the fibres are fine but have a plumpness that gives a nice solidity to the surface. There is a slight visible slub which gives a pleasing texture without being a dominant feature. I am looking forward to starting stitching, and appreciate the detailed pre-wash instructions that also accompanied the fabric. I can see why Trish recommends this particular linen so wholeheartedly and I struggled to find anything like this in the UK so I'm delighted that she offers international shipping. It was well worth the wait! :)
I was trying my embroideries with different type of linens and I was about to give up it was very frustrating the weave was not tight enough, as soon as I tried the Libeco linen I don’t want to stop my embroidery’s its easy and looks beautiful.. i will keep using this Premium Libeco linen.
