Sample Lucas Amber
Heavy weight Antique wash Linen TWILL 220gsm
Composition: 100% Linen
Amber is almost a dirty mustard with a small amount of green. It is an intense colour. This colour is very hard to capture on camera, it always appears dull. We highly recommend ordering a swatch of this to check the colour. Please note that now we have added a short clip of the colour to show it can change in different lights and how the fabric moves. If you are still unsure about the colour please order a swatch
Lucas is a heavy weight linen, 220gsm. It has a twill weave meaning it has diagonal parallel rib across the fabric, different to a plain weave. This cloth also has a antique wash applied to it, similar to our other bases Lara and Lilly linens. This wash creates a very texture, soft and relaxed look. This fabric is solid dyed and each colour in the range is developed and milled exclusively for us.
This quality will soften increasingly with wash and wear - like all linen it gets better with time…
All our linens meet the Oeko-Tex standard, we only use mills which are certified and checked yearly. Simon the owner of Potters has been in the business for 25 plus years and built up a solid relationship with the mills we work with and sourcing agents. We really pride ourselves on this as we know we can trust the mills we use for quality and standard.
This linen is perfect for tran-seasonal/winter outfits as it is heavy. Skirts, pants, dresses and jackets would work best.
Hand wash in Warm water. Do not Soak, Bleach or Wring. Drip Dry or Dry without delay away from direct Heat. Warm Iron. Dry Cleanable.
Our linen has minimal shrinkage about 2-3% if any. This because of the high quality yarn and the different washes we apply during production you will find they don’t shrink at all. But as a precaution we ask all our customers to wash there fabric before sewing, just in case…
All the flax yarn we sourced to produce our linen is from France and Belgium and sent to China to be milled.
