Whether a little dishcloth or an ornate table-cloth, everything created by Ingela Berntsson radiates quality and care. When Ingela has developed a weave and a pattern at home on her loom, she then proceeds to wash, mangle, wrinkle, dirty and rewash it. If it measures up, then Växbo Lin takes the design and weaves a full-scale prototype. If it still meets Ingela’s standards, the cloth is put into production to be made into tablecloths, curtains, napkins or perhaps even a dishcloth in tastefully colored linen.

Växbo Lin are the only remaining spinnery and weavers of linen in Scandinavia. They operate their small-scale factory in the province of Hälsingland, spinning linen yarn and weaving linen textiles from our own yarn production. 

The techniques, the material and the patterns build upon the age-old linen tradition in Sweden and Hälsingland. 

Care advice from Växbo Lin:-

  • Always soak linen in lukewarm water for approximately 30 minutes before washing.
  • This is particularly important when you wash it for the first time.
  • Wash at 60˚C using a mild detergent without optical brighteners.
  • Very short spin. Stretch when hanging.
  • NOTE: Never tumble-dry linen.
  • Mangle or iron while damp, using high heat.
  • Shrinkage in the first wash is about 5 % in both directions.
  • Width - 70 cm
  • Height - 50 cm
  • Fabric Content - 100% Linen
  • Care Advice - Wash Up To 60ºc- Do Not Tumble Dry
