Sligo Washed Ramie Fabric - Grey
A washed ramie fabric ideal for dresses, skirts, trousers and other projects requiring a medium-weight linen-esque fabric. Lends a natural finish to garments. Holds shape well with a linen-like absorbency and density. Ramie is one of the strongest natural fibres used in clothing. Unlike linen, ramie is less inclined to wrinkle.
Ramie is made using plants similar to stinging nettles but without the sting! The low environmental impact of ramie's growth and manufacturing processes make this a fantastic alternative to synthetic fibres.
This fabric has been used for over 6000 years and may even have been used to wrap Mummies!
