HMCo linen is prewashed and softened to achieve a natural aged patina. Colour within any one article can be muted in places as a result. This is not a fault in our linen. It is done with intention to achieve our relaxed, aged style.
Pending on availability, the European flax used to spin our yarns can vary from the grower. This can at times affect the dye lot within our yarns. Dye lot variation is common in processing natural fibres. Whilst we do our utmost to avoid this there can at times be slight variances to any colour within the HMCo range. We have offered some additional descriptions of our linen palette that may assist when selecting a colour. 

Our blanket collection is woven from a blend of cotton and linen. As a result, these products go through a different dying process to our 100% linen products. Slight variations in colour will be apparent between our pure linen and blended products.
