There’s linen and then there’s 2 x linen!! I wanted to share one of our new specialty linens. It just arrived and we’re excited about the versatility of these double cloths. First of all, you get two for one in color–one is orange/yellow, the second is turquoise/lime. Second you get twice the body for any garment you’re constructing.
We always check to see if a double cloth is sewn or glued. Fabrics sewn together are better quality–the construction is more sturdy and typically mills producing sewn goods are higher end in every way so you know you probably have top notch quality in the yarns also. Look closely at the pic below and you’ll see how fine the connecting yarns are. Our burn test indicates nylon which is strong, but the extra fine yarns are barely visible. This way the resulting double cloth is not bulky, but soft and supple.
