Britex Fabrics just bought a fabulous selection of basic midweight 100% linen fabrics in a plethora of lovely colors! This 58” wide linen is perfect for either garment or home decorating use – make a pair of wide-legged lounging pants, or sew new drapes for your home office. To tempt you further, we’ve reduced their cost for our online store customers; these linen solids sell for $24.99 in our San Francisco store, and are marked down to $15 per yard…just for our web-store customers! Now the only decision to make is which colors to buy – hot pink, petal peach, olive, copper, royal blue, maraschino red, periwinkle, khaki, pear, or pale taupe. (online only!)
