What is linen?

Linen fiber is a natural vegetable fiber: fabrics made of linen are more ecological than most other materials. For example, linen is more ecological than cotton because the plant requires much less water to grow.

Among textile linens, there are:

  • 100% linen fabrics (sometimes associated with ramie, just as natural)
  • Linens mixed with cotton: linen cotton
  • Linen viscose: which benefits from both the advantages of linen and the fluidity of viscose
  • Linen jerseys (quite rare but they exist! And they are often more ecological than cotton jerseys)

  • Resistance and solidity: Linen fabrics are known for their durability and their ability to maintain their original appearance for many years.
  • Smooth and regular appearance: Linen has a naturally soft texture that gives it an elegant appearance as a furnishing or ready-to-wear fabric.
  • Natural and biodegradable material: Linen is an environmentally friendly choice, as it is fully biodegradable.

How to sew linen?

Linen is a fairly easy material to sew.

If you are a beginner in sewing, it is quite accessible.

In fact, if you need advice on choosing your first fabric, we invite you to read this article: What fabrics to choose for starting sewing? 7 ideas of easy-to-sew fabrics accompanied by advice and sewing inspirations to get started!

If you choose a linen-viscose, however, your linen will be a little more difficult to handle, especially when cutting.

Do not hesitate to use weights and pin your fabric well.

As with most fabrics, it is always recommended to wash and iron your linen fabric before starting your sewing project.

Indeed, many fabrics shrink at the first wash; therefore, it is always better to prepare your fabric (decatize) properly to cut your pieces to the right dimensions.

Then do sewing samples on the sewing machine to determine the correct stitch length.

For the thread, you can choose polyester sewing threads, but when sewing natural materials, you can also opt for natural composition threads, such as cotton threads.

Linen can sometimes be transparent, especially for light colors. Do not hesitate in this case to plan a lining.
