General Linen Tips

  • Linen feels stiff until it’s been “worked”. The more it is wound, twisted or washed and dried the softer it becomes.
  • Balls wound on a ball winder may tend to spread; hand wound balls work best.
  • Items made with linen can be machine washed, dried and steam pressed with a hot iron if needed.
  • It’s normal for fuzz to gather in your lint trap the first few washings.

Linen Weaving Tips

  • When weaving, dampen the warp with a water mister or foam paint brush dipped in water for neat selvages. Dampening the warp will also help rigid heddle weavers obtain a tighter fabric.
  • It can be helpful to dampen your fingers when winding bobbins to soften the weft yarn.
  • If crisp table linens are desired, remove the fabric from the dryer while still damp and steam press to enhance luster.
