First things first, linen is a natural fiber that comes from the flax plant, so it's all-natural. Linen is one of the most breathable fabrics out there, perfect for those scorching hot summer days. It allows air to circulate freely, keeping you cool and fresh.

Durability is another feather in linen's cap. This fabric is tough and can withstand some serious wear and tear. So, you can count on your linen clothes to last for a good while, which is great for both your wallet and the environment.

Oh, did I mention that linen is eco-friendly? Yep, it's a sustainable choice. Flax plants require less water and pesticides compared to other crops used for fabric production. Plus, every part of the flax plant is used, so there's minimal waste. Mother Nature approves!

Last but not least, linen has a timeless elegance to it. It's a classic fabric that never goes out of style. Whether you're going for a chic, minimalist look or a bohemian vibe, linen fits right in. It's versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. So there you have it, my friend. Linen is the bee's knees when it comes to fabrics. It's:

  • comfortable,
  • breathable,
  • absorbent,
  • durable,
  • eco-friendly,
  • and stylish.

What more could you ask for? Get yourself some linen textile, and you'll be feeling cool, confident, and oh-so-comfy in no time!

Linen is a natural fabric that has been around for centuries, and it's pretty cool how versatile and practical it is.

One of the fantastic things about linen is its durability. It's a fabric that can withstand a lot of wear and tear, which is great news for anyone who loves to engage in historical reenactment. If you're into recreating battles, costumes, or scenes from different eras, linen is a top choice. It can withstand the rigors of reenactments and still look authentic and stylish.

Speaking of historical reenactment, linen plays a significant role in recreating clothing from different time periods.

Whether you're donning antique Rome robes, medieval garb, or Victorian-era attire, linen fabrics can give your outfits that genuine historical feel.

It helps to transport you back in time, allowing you to immerse yourself fully in the experience.

But wait, there's more! Linen isn't just for clothing. It's also widely used in home decor and furnishings. Linen curtains, bed sheets, and tablecloths add an elegant touch to any space. The natural texture of linen can create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

So, whether you're a history buff who loves participating in reenactments or someone who appreciates the comfort and style of linen, this fabric has got you covered. It's breathable, durable, and versatile, making it a go-to choice for various purposes.

First and foremost, linen is made from the fibers of the flax plant. Flax is a hardy plant that requires minimal water compared to other crops used for textiles, such as cotton. It can grow in poor soil conditions without the need for excessive irrigation or chemical fertilizers.

This means that linen has a lower environmental impact in terms of water usage and the release of harmful chemicals into the soil.

The cultivation of flax also has positive implications for biodiversity. Flax plants attract a variety of beneficial insects, which help control pests naturally. The crop rotation practices often used in flax farming also contribute to healthier soil and reduce the need for synthetic pesticides and herbicides.

Another eco-friendly aspect of linen is its durability. Linen fabrics are known for their strength and longevity. When you invest in linen products, whether it's clothing, bedding, or home textiles, you're getting items that can withstand the test of time. This means less frequent replacement and less waste going into landfills.

Additionally, linen is a biodegradable material. When its lifespan eventually comes to an end, linen naturally decomposes without leaving a significant environmental footprint. This contrasts with synthetic fabrics, such as polyester, which can take hundreds of years to break down and release microplastics into the environment.

Choosing linen over other fabrics also contributes to the reduction of carbon emissions. The production of linen requires less energy compared to the manufacturing processes involved in creating synthetic fibers. By opting for linen, you're making a greener choice and reducing your carbon footprint.

A diamond weave, also known as a diamond twill, is a specific type of weave commonly used in textile manufacturing. It is characterized by its distinctive diamond-shaped pattern created by the interlacing of warp and weft yarns.

In a diamond weave, the yarns are interlaced in a way that forms diagonal lines that intersect and create a series of repeating diamonds. This interlacing pattern gives the fabric a unique visual texture and adds interest to its appearance.

Additionally, the diamond weave often provides some stretch and flexibility to the fabric, making it suitable for garments that require a degree of movement or drape.

Colour note!

Selling fabrics through the internet it is not an easy task, since our customers cannot see them in reality.
One of the most important factors, that make you decide whether to buy a fabric or not, is to get the right COLOUR that you are looking for, matching your entire costume and its accessories.

This is why at Woolsome shop we do our best to fulfill your expectations.

We've decided to use a professional photo studio and a special colour checker system to achieve an ideal colour representation of all our product pictures.
Our goal was to present them exactly as they appear in reality.

However it has to be noticed, that your computer's monitor (or mobile phone) can have tweaked settings and therefore may sometimes display colours differently than they are in reality.
It also play a role if you look at your screen :

  • in daylight, or in a shaded room
  • frontally or at a certain angle

It is all very tricky, and you should be also aware, that modern electronic devices have usually the biggest problem to present properly shades of the COLOUR RED.

While watching all different pictures, that we've prepared for each of our products, you will also notice that the main picture (being a frontal close-up) will always be a bit darker comparing to the other pictures presenting a an entire textile from a distance. It is natural, as our eyes are also perceiving the colours differently, depending on the strength and direction of the light around you.

Many of our historical fabrics are woven in a way, that the warp and the weft are in two different colours. As a result these textiles will look differently from close-up, where you can still clearly see the difference between these two different threads. When from the further distance, this fabric will present slightly different colour, being a result of a mix of those two.

We hope, that our photographical efforts will bring you full satisfaction, so that you will find in your package what you expected.

However, please always consider asking for samples first, before your purchase.  We also offer full sets of samples of each of our textile collection.

ATTENTION: The fabric is made of polished linen threads, they give it a shiny appearance imitating silk, to maintain this effect, follow the washing instructions and DO NOT WASH it at high temperatures.

Wash in the washing machine, at a temperature of up to 30
