A lightweight linen that has a slight crunch to it,  until it has been washed that is, when it goes a bit floppy. However all it needs then is a light touch of spray starch to bring it back to life and then the light, almost floaty, fabric comes into its own again. A little starch goes a long way and whilst it  makes all pressing easier, paper linen looks as good left lightly creased – informal, as it does crisply pressed.  I love it for summer clothes and for semi-sheer or light curtains, bed drapes and lampshades.
