I bought a load of linen in a green that when I got it, was way too 'hard' and not really something I would wear. Well yesterday I tried bleaching it! I think that the linen fibre might have been damaged a bit as it is 'shedding' quite a lot unfortunately but wow... it's mustard yellow! not something I'd wear next to my face but as pants I would be ok with it!
And after bleaching! (the before green isn't how it was in real life, it was quite dark and 'hard' as a green.
There are still some faded green parts but not very noticeable and not on all of it.
