Blends of linen and cotton are comfortable because they breathe and can work well in both warm and cool temperatures. This one is a midweight, so it's good for jackets and vests. It's also unique because it's a border print, starting with dark charcoal (almost black) on one selvedge, gradually lightening to a natural linen color (beige) about 7 inches wide on the other selvedge edge. Irregular dots of dark grey, light grey, and beige further enliven the design. It would make interesting pencil skirts and pants as well as jackets and vests.
