There couldn’t be a more perfect fabric than sheer linen to welcome summer luncheons and cool, breezy evenings into your home.  The understated, sophisticated look offers countless décor ideas and advantages and is often coveted for their breathability and the light, airy feel they create.

Unfortunately pure linen has also received a bad rep due to the delicate fabric’s severe reaction to the South African sun.  Its tendency to disintegrate after extended sun exposure seems an awful shame when considering the fabric’s high price.  To counter this, people have turned to linen look Polyester / Cotton / Linen blends and manufacturers have recently perfected even a 100% Polyester textile to the point where none of the synthetic shine and stiffness remains.
