Merchant & Mills’ Recycled Brushed Linen Marl is a unique blend of European linen and recycled textile waste, which has been tumbled at the mill for a soft brushed feel. The recycled textile waste in this fabric is produced using no water, dyes or chemicals. The factory is powered by 50% solar energy and is close to zero CO2 emissions.

This is a very versatile light grey marl, a lovely fabric that is great for dressmaking. Being brushed, it will give garments a soft, cosy feel. It would be suitable for patterns like the Brooklyn or the Sevilla for toddlers, or the Milano for little girls.
For grown ups, you could go for a loose puff-sleeved blouse like the Edie or for an all-time classic like the Wanderlust Tee.

Other garments that you can make with this are dresses, tops, lightweight trousers, jackets and is perfect for pyjamas – try out the Eastwood Pajamas!

This linen is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric.

Description

Merchant & Mills – Recycled Brushed Linen Marl is now part of our Merchant & Mills collection!

Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field are Merchant & Mills. They created their company in 2010 to elevate sewing to its proper place in the creative world, respecting the craftsmanship it entails. They produce a range of card patterns and really useful kits. In contrast to the pretty and flowery image of the average haberdasher, they present sewing of notions in stark and utilitarian packaging.

Merchant & Mills continues to grow steadily. They keep evolving and developing as experience and ideas demand. Carolyn and Roderick now travel the world in search of unique and beautiful fabrics, finding aesthetic and practical inspiration along the way. Their products are stocked in the world’s most respected outlets. The company also successfully collaborated with London’s V&A Museum and Alexander McQueen.

As a result, new patterns and products emerge. They are never rushed to market, but slowly developed to be exemplary, desirable and pragmatic.
Their ethos is to respect the roots of sewing, from trade to home dressmaking, as they inspire more people to find the satisfaction of simply making. To this end, they have published three instructive, illustrated books.

They took the decision to put style to work in their presentation and packaging, as a language that would attract the very people that had hitherto overlooked sewing. Equally they were determined to include the steadfast makers and menders who had continued regardless of current trends.

In supplying patterns, fabrics and tools that allowed the creation of a desirable functioning wardrobe, they offer a viable, wearable alternative to the indistinguishable options of the high street.

Carolyn Denham has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London.
Roderick Field is a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery.
