What is Linen?

Linen is a natural material that is almost as classic as cotton in the fabric libraries of sewing enthusiasts. Linen fiber is a natural vegetable fiber: fabrics made of linen are more ecological than most other materials.

Linen is, for example, more ecological than cotton because the plant requires much less water to grow. It is a strong, durable, breathable fabric that allows for the creation of responsible clothing and accessories.

The material is prone to wrinkling, but its irregular touch and natural look are particularly appreciated, making all your sewing projects absolutely timeless.

Among linen textiles, there are:

  • 100% linen fabrics (sometimes associated with ramie, which is equally natural)
  • Linen blended with cotton: cotton linen
  • 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)

How to Sew Linen?

Linen is a relatively 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 Beginning Sewing? 7 Ideas of Easy-to-Sew Fabrics with Tips and Sewing Inspirations to Get Started!

If you choose a linen-viscose, however, your linen will be a bit more difficult to handle, especially during cutting. Don't 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 during the first wash; therefore, it's always better to prepare your fabric (pre-shrink) to cut your pieces to the correct dimensions.

Then do some sewing samples on the sewing machine to determine the right stitch length. For thread, you can choose polyester sewing threads, but when sewing natural materials, you can also opt for natural composition threads, like cotton threads.

Linen can sometimes be transparent, especially for light colors. Don't hesitate to plan a lining in this case. You can check out our selections of quality linings, ready to be upcycled.
