|Chrysanthemum Double Damask|
Irish Linen 100% Linen Double Damask Chrysanthemum
A Double Damask 100% Irish Linen tablecloth is one of the most exquisite tablecloths one can buy. What makes it so special is the quality and beauty of the damask designs which are achieved through expert weaving. The weavers raise or lower the threads in certain sequences to achieve our classic designs. When you purchase a double damask you are investing in an heirloom. It gets softer and more luminous with use.
The thread count is 202 per square inch. Linen threads are counted differently than cotton threads. When spun each individual linen thread is heavier than a cotton thread. Cotton threads because they are thinner are twisted as a two or three ply. Each single linen thread is twisted as a single ply. So a count of 202 linen single ply is actually a much closer weave when compared to a count of 202 two-ply cotton. 202-count linen would equal 404 two-ply cotton or 606 three-ply cotton.
