Vintage Linen Rolls

We have some wonderful rolls of vintage linen just in.

These vintage linen fabrics are wonderfully characterful, versatile and durable.  They were woven, mainly in peoples homes,  before the second world war on narrow home looms. The linen  and hemp was often home grown and processed.  The home spinning resulted in threads that were not uniform- this is in part what gives these fabrics such wonderful character.
