Robert Kaufman's Essex Linen are our go-to fabric! They are made up of 55% linen and 45% cotton, 43 inches wide and weigh 5.6 oz. per square yard. Sturdier than quilting cotton but softer than a light-weight upholstery fabric Essex Linen has a luxurious hand and full-bodied drape.
Commonly used for garment making Essex Linens are perfect for shirts, blouses, skirts, dresses and light jackets.
Essex linens are also a fan favourite for modern quilting because they're a little heavier and warmer plus have a wrinkly and crinkly look when washed making your quilt extra loveable.
