- Care Details
We offer our Ida fabric by the yard so that you may use it to make your own custom pieces. All of our fabrics are double wide; 100" - 130" wide on the roll depending on the fabric. After washing, the width of our Ida fabric is 100"; a one yard piece is 100"W x 36"L.
Due to garment-dyeing limitations, the longest continuous piece of fabric we are able to dye is 3 yards or 108" long. The longest possible piece of Ida fabric is 100" W x 108" L.
You may order as many yards as you need. If you are ordering more than 3 yards of fabric, please specify on your order, how long you would like each piece to be.
- 100% linen with poly batting
- Garment-washed and dyed using non-toxic dyes
Our Ida quilted linen provides both warmth and decoration. It is constructed using two layers of our Vintage Linen along with a special batting and a unique quilting thread. The 3 inch diamond quilt is a variation on the more regular box quilts seen in the market. Ida will withstand home laundering, which makes it ideal for for your bed or your couch and chair. We worked hard to get the right balance of softness, warmth, and body you want in any quilt.
Derived from the flax plant, linen's durability and tendency to grow softer with time make it ideal for bedding that can last for years. Linen is naturally moisture absorbent and insulating. It keeps you cool when you are hot, and warms when you are cold. Linen is also hypoallergenic and antimicrobial.
Wash should be separated into light & dark colors. We recommend a lukewarm wash cycle with a gentle detergent & a cool rinse.
Do not use bleach on linen. Avoid using products that contain whitening agents such as chlorine bleach, alpha hydroxy acids and benzoyl peroxide on garment-dyed items. The reactive dyes used for garment-dyeing are not resistant to these whitening agents.
Tumble dry with low heat. Remove bed linens promptly from the machine to reduce wrinkling. For best results, line dry.
We at MATTEO tend to prefer a lived-in look, as such, you don't find us ironing our sheets too frequently. If you prefer a crisp looking bed, our linen should be pressed while slightly damp using the Linen or High setting.
