mind the MAKER – Nisa Softened Linen
This fabulous linen from mind the MAKER is a simple but classic linen that is soft to the touch but still a little crisp as linen should be.
Nisa softened linen is the perfect weight for dress making, making this a linen can can be worn the whole year round. This is a linen that benefits from being washed before you start sewing, even though the fabric is preshrunk it may shrink a little more with the first wash.
This linen will age beautifully with washing and wearing, changing the colour slightly and making the fabric softer
mind the maker has chosen a mill wash for the finishing of the linen, which is the most sustainable way to soften linen,
as there is there is no use of chemicals, enzymes or huge amount of water consumption in the softening process making it the most environmentally responsible way of softening linen
Mill washed linen is similar to stone washing, with a soft, textured touch and a gentle washed appearance.
