Wide linen?

Kilroy's picture

I tried to go to the Threadpro site, and it is down. Where else can I get linen in wide widths for shower curtains?

www.dharmatradingco.com is a great site for natural and prepared for dying fabrics of all sizes.

The grommet tape on that Homespun fabric site sounds like just the ticket for the tops of the curtains - but all they seem to have is cottons and polyesters.
I hadn't thought of Dharma trading in this context, and they do have some linen, but only up to 54" wide.
Sigh, maybe I should be looking at sites that list linen in meter widths.... I'm sure shipping from Europe will be quite reasonable, right????

ooooooooooooh, I don't know about that!  Good luck on your search!  I'd love to put full length linnen curtains in my bedroom but I need to block the light.  I actually broke down and bought linnen curtains for my living room from Tuesday Mornings, they are the "perfect" rust color and lined so I gave up the search for the right fabric.  Now if I could just "get a round tuit" and hem them!

Shipping from Europe reasonable? Oh no. I had a subscription to a women's magazine for years but stopped having it mailed because the mail cost was about three times the cost of the magazine. And linen is heavy.

Here's the response I just got from DeAnna in Sales:

From: Homespun Fabrics [sales@homespunfabrics.com]

Date: Monday, January 12, 2009

[your question] Several people are looking for 108" or wider LINEN (for tablecloths or drapery). The only source we knew of (Threadpro.com) seems to have gone away.

I am hoping that you may know of someone who still makes and/or sells this?

[Homespun's answer] We do have a 106" wide Linen in white that we carry. In fact it's being readied now to add to our website. Would you like me to send you the link when it goes up? We will have others that are 58"-60" as well, that come in 67 colors and neutrals. All are Pure Linen.

Currently the price per yard of the 106" wide white Linen is 28.90/yard, however there is a per ORDER $40 cut yardage charge for less than 55yds. [Linen only!-K]

Samples will be available as well.

Does this help?

Vogue's site has linen listed as 60" wide for $14.99/yd.

They also have fabric for religious, but I didn't see any linen listed when I checked the site.
