Rosehip linen knit

A wonderfully bright red for airy summer clothing.

Other linen knitted fabrics are possible combinations.

The linen is only suitable to a limited extent as a cuff, as it has hardly any resilience. Working with slips is a possibility here, or using other fabrics as cuff fabric. We like to use wool jersey or wool/silk fabrics as cuffs.

Here we do not have exactly the same shade in stock, so that contrasting colors can be used here.

design example

Here you can see a women's shirt by Studio Schnittreif (don't be surprised, the photo is not colourfast). Here the linen knit at the neckline was used as a slip.

Many thanks to the customer for permission to use the photo.

materials and information

Pure linen (kba)

The linen knit is silky soft, light and has a great drape. The fabric has the structure and feel typical of linen with thread irregularities, but with a knitted look. This means that some grass remnants or thread irregularities are knitted in here, as is also the case with woven linen. Due to the knitting, slight stripe optics can also be seen within the fabric.

The fabric is not completely opaque. As a piece of clothing, however, it is more opaque than it appears at first glance.

linen knit

The linen knit is a wonderful light knit fabric made from 100% organic linen (kba).

It's 100% linen and unlike most linen fabrics on the market, it's knitted rather than woven, making it slightly stretchy.

care instructions

We have taken the following washing instructions from Utopia because we cannot add anything else to the text:

"The linen fiber is smooth and the linen fabric traps little air, so linen is lint-free and less susceptible to dirt and bacteria. In addition, the fabric is breathable and therefore cool on the skin - an ideal summer fabric!

Linen is only susceptible to friction (from wet fabric). You should therefore be careful not to roughen the fibers too much when washing, otherwise the fabric will become hard and scratchy. The following washing instructions will keep the fabric smooth and clean:

For less heavily soiled or rarely worn pieces, you can air them out in the fresh air first. That can be enough to make them fresh and fragrant again. The right temperature: wash dyed linen at a maximum of 40 degrees. You can wash natural linen at 60 degrees, if necessary even at 95 degrees. In order not to roughen the linen unnecessarily, you should use the gentle cycle on your machine or reduce the spin speed. Linen requires a lot of water when washing because the fibers are strong swell. Therefore, put slightly fewer items in your washing machine than you would with other materials. Also, make sure not to wash your linens more often than necessary. This saves water and energy. For linen, use a mild organic detergent without brighteners. Never put linen in the dryer. Rather hang it flat to dry. This keeps the linen soft and supple." Note - if you don't have a gentle cycle in the machine, just use the wool program - only the normal program should not be used.

sewing instructions

The linen knit is suitable for making blouses, trousers, skirts, dresses and much more - the fabric does not stretch enough to be used as cuffs or used without adjustment for patterns designed for fabrics with high stretch. We recommend cuts that are designed for fabrics that only stretch slightly or cuts that are recommended for woven fabrics.

Radiant and light

The fabric is airy, light and bright red. I am happy about this summery alternative to wool fabrics.

Wonderfully glowing

I love the linen knit

soft and comfortable

The knit is nice and soft and pleasant on the skin and it falls wonderfully. I'm so happy to have finally found beautiful knitted linen because I don't want to wear anything else in the summer. And the red is beautiful, bright but not too bright.

Stable and airy

airy, beautiful, stable - even for children's skirts!

Great intense colour

The color is uniquely bright - and despite the really airy fabric, it has been totally robust in normal washing so far. I'm excited!
