I have a gorgeous laminated linen that has been enstashee for 2-3 years. Unlike laminated cotton, which seems to be basically cotton with a plastic candy shell, this is just a treatment to "glisten" the fabric.

Any care suggestions? Thanks!

The RTW garments I've seen in this fabric all have instructions to dry clean. However, here's a discussion at pr, and some have washed this stuff.

I can't imagine putting those colors, with that shine, in that plaid on arse. Eye wash!

Thanks! I hadn't seen that thread. I'm fine if some laminate eventually fades. And I probably won't put it through the dryer. I usually don't with linen.
