Why did you choose this?
11 Oz. Bone sBelgian linen fabric.--I'm interested in this linen, and want to pre- wash the fabric before making it into slipcovers for my Family room sofa and easy chair. The intent is to pre- wash, so the finished slipcover would be washable without shrinkage. My concern is whether your 11 Oz, Belgian linen comes with sizing, and what would pre- washing do to its appearance.
I have several vintage hand loomed linen towels purchased in Europe, which I used for upholstering my kitchen stools, which wear extremely well under daily use. After three yrs, still look beautiful. They clean up easily when spots occur. I washed, mongeled ( yes, I have a rotary iron) and scotchguarded them before using it on my stools .
That is the beaty of Belgian linen that it is washable and very strong, and I would prefer washing your 11 Oz. Belgian linen too, as opposed to dry cleaning, which is what's recommended on your website.
Can I pre- wash without ruining the fabric ( sizing if any) , why is dry cleaning recommended? Is it because of Sizing, shrinkage, or just covering your base? Thank you.
BEST ANSWER: Dry cleaning is recommended because of sizing and shrinkage, like you said. Some people do choose to wash it and we have not heard of any problems other the expected shrinkage and washing away of the sizing. This may change the texture of the fabric somewhat to be a little softer and slightly fuzzier, but this can be lessened by ironing. Because you will loose the sizing, we suggest using Scotchgard after washing for best protection.

Used this for a client and made upholstered cornice boards with a nailhead trim. This fabric irons up beautifully and is wonderful to work with.
