Mangled linens

And just because I managed to capture the sheen of mangled linens (in the last post), I'll dedicate a whole post to just them:


The picture is turned to make it as big as possible - click to make it even bigger!
And yes, they are different - I often like to make "families": the warp stripes are fixed (of course), but the weft stripes are varied - one placemat has even-sized stripes, one is "tromp-as-writ" until the size was right, one has just two sizes of stripes and so on.

Dräll och kalt-manglat lin - det er det smukkeste der findes :-)

They look lovely and are a good advertisement for 'proper' compression. :)

cheers,

Amazing! of course your linen is so finely woven that the gleam is amplified. So beautiful.

Wow, those are stunning - what an amazing sheen! Definitely an encouragement to mangle thoroughly.
