Essex Yarn Dyed Homespun – Indigo and creamy white. From the Essex Yarn Dyed Homespun collection, a mix of 55% linen and 45% cotton. This Homespun fabric in Indigo is the same weight as the original Essex Linen but with a different weave structure which has a slightly ridged textured to it and with more drape.
