Our cottolin is made by Bockens of Sweden, known for their superior quality. Great for towels, runners, rep weave projects and other home decorative items.
Cottolin is a wonderful combination of 60% cotton and 40% linen giving a nice combination with the best properties of both fibers. Cottolin works well with 16/1 singles linen or tow linen as a weft for a crisper fabric. 74 beautiful colorfast colors plus unbleached and white.
