Superb homespun linen sheets, very large size, each measuring 224cm (84.5") wide x 335cm (136") long.  Each sheet is made from 3 panels joined with tiny hand sewn stitches, the hems are also hand sewn and they are embroidered with the initials MD to one corner.  These sheets date from the late 19th Century when narrow looms were in use.
 
The linen is thick, heavy and very tactile with lots of slubs in the weave.  Each sheet weighs 2.1kg.  Suitable for use as tablecloths, upholstery and would make fantastic curtains.
 
I have four of these sheets available
