Homespun Essex Silver ½ yd
Our Essex Linen Cotton is a favourite! Essex Homespun’s distinctive charm comes from being dyed and woven in a traditional way. The yarn dyed fibers are woven into an understated checkered pattern, which creates a softly textured finish. The yarn dyed quality also gives this fabric a soft, low drape, as well as allowing a heathered colour.
This versatile fabric combines the best of linen and cotton, creating a fabric that has the natural, textured look of linen with a softer drape and smoother finish.
We suggest pairing Essex with garment patterns that hang away from the body and maintain the garment's shape. For some of our favourite patterns to make, we'd pair Essex with the timeless Gallery Tunic, comfortable Burnside Bibs or the dramatic Lichen Duster/Wrap Dress.
Not only is Essex an amazing fabric for making garments, it has also been used to create throw pillows, tote bags, re-cover chairs, napkins, curtains and so much more! Essex works well and looks good in so many ways.
