Antique French Hemp Sheet MS
An antique French hemp or chanvre sheet, natural unbleached off-white colour embroidered with the initials MS in red cross stitch. It is in good condition and has no signs of wear, in fact I doubt it has ever been used. There is one mark which hardly shows - see the last photo. The sheet 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 fourth photo.
This sheet measures 2.16m wide x 1.6m long. (85inches wide x 63inches long).
It will fit a single bed and a double bed 4ft 6inches as a bedspread /throw (the bed in the photo is a super kingsize).
This sheet is in good condition and has a heavy robust feel to it.
