Gorgeous! I’ve woven with this linen as both warp and weft, as it’s plenty strong enough for warp even though it looks too fine. Granted, I weave on a Louet Spring and wove with this linen during a humid stretch, so those things helped. But honestly, this stuff is wonderful to work with, and if you’ve been holding back, suck it up and just give it a try.
I like it most woven with 30/2 silk, as together the two fibres have the most wonderful hand, making the best summer scarf fabric I can imagine. The drape and hand is scrumptious.
