Antique French Hemp Sheet LB
A large antique French hemp or chanvre sheet, natural unbleached off-white colour embroidered with the initials LB in red cross stitch. It is in excellent condition and has no signs of wear, in fact I doubt it has ever been used. It has been freshly laundered and is ready to use. It would make a lovely bed cover or tablecloth or use it to make a summery curtain or cushions. This fabric is also suitable for dyeing and upholstery.
This antique sheet was woven on a narrow loom and consists of 2 long pieces of linen that have been joined together down the centre with a tiny hand stitch - see the last two photos. There is one area with marks see the fourth photo.
This sheet measures 1.88m wide x 2.30m long. (74inches wide x 91inches long).
It will fit a single bed , a double bed 4ft 6inches and a 5ft king/US Queen bed(the bed in the photo is a super kingsize).
This sheet is in excellent condition and has a heavy robust feel to it.
Care instructions: machine wash 40C
Sorry, but this sheet is heavy hence the high overseas shipping cost. However should the actual shipping cost work out at less than the amount charged, I will refund the difference.
