'Elizabethan' Evenweave Linen - Antique Cream
“Many years specialising in Crewel Work have taught me to use only the highest quality linen twill to obtain the best results from my stitching” - Phillipa Turnbull
Our new 32 count Elizabethan Evenweave linen is produced exclusively for The Crewel Work Company using organically grown flax and thread produced using an ancient spinning method, which creates a far rounder thread than the usual modern flattened version. The woven cloth is boil washed to a near white, and is neither bleached or dyed.
The joy of this linen is that it replicates that produced and used by our forebears, using the same weaving methods of hundreds of years ago. The production method ensures that this linen will stand the test of time, unlike the majority of commercially available linens. Read the full story of how we developed this linen.
