Yarn dyed fabrics are exactly what they sound like. Yarns are dyed into specific colors before being woven into a design. Often varying weights or textures of yarn are woven into the cloth to create a more textured fabric that is frequently double sided. This process takes additional time, planning, and engineering to achieve a particular design and will account for the slightly higher price point of yarn-dyed fabrics. Versatility Take advantage of the versatility that linen offers. Due to its inherent strength and breathability, linen can be used in applications around the home as well as many types of garments and accessories. Use linen for throw pillows, napkins, quilting, tablecloths, aprons. Additionally, linen changes with care. For example, when washed and dried, linen takes on a soft and wrinkled look and texture. Press it for a crisp look or wash and wear for a natural rumpled look. In the last pictures, you can see some swatches of this linen once washed. It makes the softest napkins and dishcloths! And because this fabric is yarn dyed- you can pull the threads along the lengthwise and crosswise grain to create a self fringe. This listing is sold per half yard.
