Purl Soho’s Mineral Linen turns the simple into the stunning. It starts with linen, raw and pure, and finishes with a metallic sheen, mysterious and beautiful. Mineral Linen comes in twelve colors and in two weights, one lighter for garments and wraps, the other a bit sturdier for pillows and placemats. Perfectly suited for a wedding shawl or a holiday table, we also love to think about using this fabric in unexpected places: a casual dress, a textural shift in a quilt, or an everyday napkin with a spark of something special! Note that because results have varied with machine washing and drying this fabric, we recommend test laundering a swatch of fabric on a delicate cycle in the washer and on a cool setting in the dryer. If you're not happy with the results, dry clean your finished piece instead. And regardless, we recommend dry cleaning after one or two machine washings.
