Linen is made from the fibres of the stem of the flax plant, whereas Ramie is made from fibres of a flowering nettle plant found in Asia. Both fabrics have similar visual characteristics and properties. 

This fabric was originally sold to us by numerous wholesalers as 100% linen. These suppliers obtain this fabric from the same mill. It has now come to light that this fabric is in fact blended with some cotton. The quality and feel of the fabric has not changed. There is still discussions around whether it is linen or ramie, but this is hard to find out as it is difficult to distinguish the two.

We sell our dressmaking fabrics in half metre increments.

We do our best to get accurate images of all of our fabrics, but due to varying monitor screens colours may differ slightly to the original fabric. If you are unsure about the colour, weight or scale of the fabric you can order a swatch of the fabric.
