Opalescent Linen Fabric
Brand Ecclesiastical Sewing
A fine linen lawn fabric made in a lighter sheer fabrication. Suitable for sheer chalice veils, fine hand work or shadow-work embroidery, and fine baptismal towels. When a softer, more draped look is needed, this is the fabric of choice. Also consider this for a bishop rochet.
When a fine and delicate linen is needed for making heirloom Baptismal gowns or christening gowns, this would be the linen of choice for heirloom seamstresses.
This linen has a smooth, fine texture and finish, and a soft, draping hand. The finish has a slight sheen to the surface. Opalescent Linen is a soft white color.
Please note that linen fabric has a high percentage of shrinkage. Please allow extra yardage for shrinkage when purchasing. Fabric is not returnable for shrinkage or failure to allow extra yardage to accommodate shrinkage factors.
