oh Karen. Please tell me more about your sources for info about flame retardant. I just brought a commercial job into my house.............240 widths drapery..............all FP. WE got babies here.......

I do know my one experience ( each ) with linen and hemp were a bust. They both washed poorly, different suplliers. The Dharma Trading hemp pilled, ( maybe it was my ammonia method ) and the washed linen ( prewashed ) continued to lose fiber in the wash water, after three washings. It looked fine, but the wash water was always full of fiber, a scary amount.

I stopped then, figuring this is some kind of inherent behavior. Anyone find this not to be true, even if a more costly choice ? I first looked to keep it inexpensive, and stopped there.
