Polyester is an essential fiber used everyday in the manufacturing of textiles. The qualitites that make polyester such a useful fiber are its high tenacity, low water absorption, wrinkle resistance and minimal shrinkage in comparison with other industrial fibers. One disadvantage is that the feel of polyester often betrays its synthetic nature.
On the other hand linen, which is a natural fabric, wrinkles very easily, does not clean very well and needs to be dry cleaned. Thus, with our 100% polyester Candlelite Poly Lin you get the best of both worlds: the sturdy construction of polyester with the classy look of linen.

The vast amount of solids to choose from and the 60 inch width provides an excellent resource for many projects.
