Why did you choose this?
What is the best drapery weight when selecting Belgium linen? 11oz or lighter?
BEST ANSWER: Any of them would work so that is really personal preference. We recommend ordering samples to see what one you like best.
What is the difference between the Belgian and Irish linen fabrics?
BEST ANSWER: The main difference, in this case, is the weight. This Belgian linen is medium/heavy at 11 oz per square yard, while Irish linen is much lighter at 6.7 oz. Some of our Belgian linen is even heavier at 14.7 oz. See this video for more on Belgium linen: ostx.wistia.com/medias/tvxidyyaob
Is this linen suitable for upholstering?
BEST ANSWER: I think that it would be great for upholstering. It certainly depends on the look you want. It is not very heavy (as some backed upholstery fabrics are) but it has a beautiful hand. I pre-shrunk mine as I was using it for Japanese cross-back aprons. It was quite heavy for these but worked very nicely. If you choose the washing vs. dry cleaning method it will appear softer, and less formal, but warmly inviting. I love it.
I am wondering what weight of linen is the best for really nice slack?.
BEST ANSWER: This linen is stiff and heavy. We recommend Irish linen for slacks.
What is the highest quality linen ?
BEST ANSWER: By far, the Belgian linen seems to be the best in the world--if you need to see why just order samples of the Belgian and others. I got one here to cover an ottoman to match a sofa & the fabric swatches were critically important. Very nice quality, heavy duty and they launder beautifully.
I am looking for a linen or linen look fabric to upholster seat and backs of dining room chairs.Recomendation of weight or specific fabric would be appreciated greatly. Ideas?
BEST ANSWER: This 11oz Belgian Linen would work well for dining room chairs. It's fairly heavy, so it would be the best suited for upholstery, as compared to other weights of linen. We suggest ordering a sample if you want to get a better sense of the weight or if you want to see any of the colors in person. You can find all the color choices here:
How many meters of fabrication do i need to cover all the Walls in a conservatory of 8 Times' 4 meters, 2,5 M tall?
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure exactly what you're picturing. Do you mean cover the walls with curtains? To literally cover the walls in flat panels of linen, you would need roughly 54 yards of this fabric. To do curtains, multiply this amount by 1.5 or 2, depending on how full you want the curtains to be. There's also other considerations like hems and number of panels.
