Embroidered Vintage French Metis Linen Sheet, Unused.

The most important thing to mention about this sheet is that the embroidery has been done on a machine NOT BY HAND.The blue marks around the embroidery are the guidlines and will wash out.

However it is a lovely quality, closely woven sheet which is unused.

One row of drawn thread work runs along the whole seam of the return and a small row is under the embroidery design.

Being unused the sheet is ecru in colour as traditionally Vintage French linen is made from unbleached flax. Repeat washes will turn it pure white.

It has not got a monogramme.

This sheet being unused is grubby on the parts that have been exposed to the elements. I do not launder unused sheets as, it is difficult to prove that they have not been used once washed.

All unused French vintage linen should be soaked overnigh to remove any fabric sizing then washed in the normal way.

The sheet measures approx, 75 inches wide by 92 inches long.

Weight approx 1.375Kg, the weight is given as an indication of the quality.

For those of you who are not familar with French Metis, it is a woven French fabric which was woven using linen for the vertical thread and cotton for the horizontal thread. The finished fabric is roughly 50% linen and 45% cotton. Metis is a superior fabric for making bedding with as it has many of the insulating qualities of pure linen.

Metis sheets are still made here in France but only in small quantities as it is expensive to produce. It can only be bought in the large department stores in Paris and in specialist linen shops.
