Linen Union Fabric
Union fabric is linen yarn that has been blended with cotton,
viscose or other fibres to make the fabric suppler and more
crease resistant than pure linen; which although strong
can be very stiff and lacking in suppleness for soft draping
curtains. Linen union fabric works well for loose covers
and cushions although it is advisable to pre -wash as shrinkage
of about 5% will occur.
You will always get a soft tailored look with linen union
fabric and it lends itself well to being interlined which
adds body and gives the sumptuous look you can see this
in the lifestyle shot of the Les Chinoise red fabric. The
drapes are interlined with heavy bump and have a 5 inch
buckram triple pinch pleat heading.
The Avalon linen union fabric works very well which you
can see in the lifestyle photo. This dreamy fabric has been
used to make a smart throw and the curtains are in our Compton
tea stain. The toile fabric called Les Chinoise coordinates
with flax and antique white.
