The Linen Quest: Kelani

Name: Natural 100% Linen
Purchased from: Kelani
Cost: $50 per metre
Service: Excellent. Kelani always impress with speedy delivery plus postage is free within Australia. They stock gorgeous fabric including an extensive range of Japanese and Australian fabric.

This is a beautiful quality linen and is well worth the price tag. The colour hasn't come up very well in the photo above, it's closer to the shade on the far right. It's maybe a little lighter than the image on the Kelani website, although as we all know this depends on the calibration of your computer screen as well. In their description of the linen Kelani recommend matching it with Kristen Doran Winter Nest and Matryoshka Doll craft panels. It's slightly thinner than the linen I would normally use for embroidery but I think the weave is tight enough to be used in this way. It would be perfect for almost any craft project.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

Have you purchased linen recently? Would you like to be a guest blogger for The Linen Quest? Leave me a comment with your details or contact me directly via the email contact in my sidebar to take part!

I haven't purchased linen lately, but I did finally use my Nest panel today to make a pillow, so I know exactly the colour of linen you are talking about. I'm loving thse reviews and when I go to purchase linen will definitely come back to them.
