Riley is the the same base as Halo. It is a textured linen blended with Lyocel to give a beautiful and soft drape. Th digital print has a black base colour.
Lyocell is very similar to rayon, it is a higher quality of the yarn. Normally these two are mixed to bring down the cost. It is made by mixing wood chips in a solvent to dissolve, then pushing the mixture through small holes to form a thread, which is then chemically treated, dried and spun into yarn.
All our Linen and Lyocel 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.

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.
