Bold, powerful and intoxicatingly bright, POPPY Linen's candy hue can bring a snap of life to everything around it. British abstract painter Howard Hodgkin saw this colour's vibrant, sparky potential, layering it into his evocative arrangements of colour, texture, shape and light as a foreground flare of colour that jumps towards us.

With its unique honeycomb weave, this linen has a distinct look and feel that sets it apart from other waffle weave fabrics. This waffle linen can be used for a variety of different items that require a linen that has a texture that is subtle, but makes a statement.

Elaine profile image Just enough texture!
Reviewer: Elaine

This yummy fabric washed well. The texture after washing is just enough to be suitable for summer wear. I got it thinking if it was too much, I could always use it for toweling. But it is lovely. I can't wait to make it up.

I love the color and the texture of this fabric. However after I finished my dress, I noticed the waffle weave broke down in several places and there are a series of loose threads on the front of my dress! :( I also bought the beige color and had no problems with the fabric, so perhaps this is an aberration.

This fabric pops with brown fabric. It is sturdy and the color is a slight orange tinted red. I only had dark red thread and that matched.

The waffle weave is very small. I thought it was larger and when washed would waffle and give texture. It did not. I was disappointed. I purchased 6 yards to make a blanket. It didn't shrink and add texture like I expected. The color is beautiful and stays bright even after 3 washes with very hot water and and dryer. I expected it to be like the thatch. I sewed the blanket and then washed. Now I may cut apart and try to figure out a different project with this material.

Made a neck pillow with two sides waffle and one side brown with bright color starburst design. Very dark orange.
