John England currently specialise in flax linen fabrics. However, also routinely sell fabrics woven with linen, and yarns made from other fibres. These include hemp, cotton, wool, polyamide, polyester, and nylon.
Various fibres are added to enhance the linen and introduce different properties to the fabrics. These properties are physical, aesthetic and organoleptic. They include increased rub resistance for upholstery fabrics, different handles, properties, drapes and appearances to the linens.
It is important to design, or engineer, fabrics for specific end-uses.
Yarns made from fibres such as 100% cotton or 100% hemp, are used. Subject to minimums; at least 1000m.
