Why did you choose this?
Could this be used as the same linen for oil painting?
BEST ANSWER: We haven't had anyone ask about that specific use so we aren't sure how to answer. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
I am looking for upholstery weight Belgian Linen. 100% Belgian linen is washable, yet your website indicates dry cleaning recommended. The beauty of real Belgian linen is it gets softer and nicer in washing. Is your fabric pre washed, or would it have to be washed before making the slip covers?
Is your 14.7 OZ linen "Belgian linen grown and made in Belgium," and is the 14.7 oz suitable weight for Slipcovering furniture?
Thank you, Ilona
BEST ANSWER: Dry cleaning is recommended if you want to keep the fabric as close to its original condition as possible. As you say, the texture will change when washed and it may shrink, so the fabric should be pre-washed. We believe it's at least finished in Belgium, but we have to check on that. The 14.7 oz weight is heavy but can be used for slipcovers. We suggest ordering a sample if you want to be sure the weight is what you're looking for.
what is the warp/weft?
BEST ANSWER: The warp is the thread that goes from left to right on the loom. The weft is the thread that goes from top to bottom. The weaving of the side to side thread and top to bottom thread creates the fabric. Check YouTube for weaving on a loom. It’s wonderful.
is this the weight recommended for recovering a sofa?
