In terms of producing the linen, most histories agree that men were given the responsibility of the heavier work carrying and lifting and transport of materials. Women were taught from a young age about the craft of linen. Many of the children and older women were in charge of less delicate jobs, while those with manual dexterity and stamina were given the task of making the higher quality fine Swedish table linens on one of the many looms.
Real linen is a fine fabric that must be treated carefully. It is a natural fiber, so you will need to treat it as such. Natural fibers, in general, can shrink, lose shape, and break if treated harshly. Do not wash natural fibers in hot water. You will also want to avoid excessive agitation and harsh detergents. Most washing machines have a low, hand-wash setting that is fine for table linens. If you are worried, you can use your bathtub.
The woman was delighted to find Calle as she herself had bought a fine Swedish table linen from Calle is father in 1948 just after she was married. Now, recently widowed after fifty-seven years and returned to Norway to live she was delighted to learn she could finally buy some napkins woven from the same loom as the tablecloth. She had her tablecloth with her and purchased matching napkins. Fine Swedish table linen has a long history behind it, but it is the story of the owners and their families are what enrich their legacy. And with the long-standing tradition of linen making and weaving, you too can probably find something to match your great-grandmother linens.
