    Pickford Nevada is a midweight option should you wish to make linen slacks, jacket, or dress to wear during the warmer summer days.  This ivory linen is a beautiful companion for the so many wardrobe options, especially if you live in a hot climate where you can wear linen all year long. We carry four colors of Nevada Linen - white, ivory, black and oatmeal (Pickford Nevada is the ivory).  Dry clean the fabric to retain its crispness. If you choose to wash it, you will want to pre-shrink it, and be aware that it will become very soft and casual looking (test before washing the entire piece to see if you like the Bohemian effect).

    Pickford Stripe is a lovely Italian milled stretch linen/cotton blend.  Please note, there is no crossgrain stretch, and 30% lengthwise stretch, so the manufacturer intended this fabric to be cut across the grain to utilize the stretch.  This will orient the stripes as vertical, rather than horizontal.  If you are not used to calculating yardage for cutting across the grain, simply lay your pattern pieces down side-by-side in a row, then measure from left to right at the widest part.  You most likely will need less fabric than your pattern calls for.

    • 70% Linen, 28% Cotton, 2% Spandex
    • 58" wide
    • Dry clean recommended.
