Win beautiful ethical linen clothing by Lemuel MC

September 10, 2021

I have loved Lemuel MC ethical linen clothing since I first discovered the brand a few years ago. Beautifully made to order in London using sustainable linen, the collections include all-season pieces that layer brilliantly. The designs are timeless, versatile and made to last… and last. Linen only gets more beautiful over time, so this well made hard-working clothing is the exact opposite of fast fashion.

As the season starts to move into Autumn, it feels like the perfect time to offer this rather wonderful competition prize. One lucky winner will be able to choose either this stunning 100% linen reversible hoodie scarf or a gift voucher for the same value (£120) to spend on any other piece from the Lemuel MC linen clothing and accessories collection. Scroll down for more details on the prize as well as how to enter… and good luck!

The reversible 100% linen hoodie scarf

linen hood hoodie in brown and pink ethically made in London by  Lemuel MC and available to be won in our competition. Alternatively you can choose a voucher worth £120 towards any item from the Lemuel MC collection #linen #hood #competition #reversible

This beautifully made linen hoodie scarf puts me in mind of Meryl Streep in The French Lieutenant’s Woman.

Perfect for adding a touch of mystery and romance to your wardrobe, it’s also actually really practical and will keep your shoulders and head warm on chilly days. Wear it two ways – with either the grey or pink side facing out.

The soft pink lining is a thinner more open weave linen, creating a nice contrast with the thicker grey linen – both of which are ethically sourced.

I am sure this is a piece you’ll love to wear for years and wonder how you did without it before. Make like Meryl, hide away when you feel like it, or simply wrap up warm and toasty – it’s up to you.

Alternatively, the winner can opt for a £120 voucher (the same value as the hoodie scarf) to spend towards any purchase from the Lemuel MC collection. To give you a flavour of the seasonal loveliness you’ll find over there, here are one or two of my own favourites.

Rosalind Top

rosalind linen top with full sleeves and raw edges in dark midnight navy blue ethical linen

This is the Rosalind 83 top and it’s a bit of a show-stopper don’t you think? Made from 100% softened ethically sourced linen and available in 5 beautiful colours, it combines 80s inspired ruffles with modern raw edges. Wear on or off the shoulder and change the position of the sleeves to vary the look. Shown here with the Rosalind 83 skirt which has the same lovely raw edges.

Wrap dress

How gorgeous is this 100% linen wrap dress? It’s made to order in thicker linen perfect for layering on colder days. I love the pleats on the skirt and sleeves as well as this seasonal rust colour. Also available in navy.

    I love the scarf…would use it to finish an outfit..it would be perfect on a windy seaside day.

  • Caryl Chambers September 12, 2021 at 7:04 am

    I would absolutely ❤️ to wear that rust 🧡wrap dress as a coat layer over that beautiful jumpsuit 🤎 and if there was a way to have the hoodie scarf 🧡🤎made to match – wow think I would feel beautifully well dressed going out anywhere in such an outfit! 😍

  • christine archer September 12, 2021 at 7:11 am

    The linen unisex shirting would be my choice as I have just received a new kidney which will mean permanently keeping out of the sun and covering my arms etc. Linen would be the perfect choice to give me protection.

  • Sharon Griffin September 12, 2021 at 7:14 am

    I adore the lovely green slim long coat as green always reminds me of my irish roots and pretty shamrocks . I would style this coat with my favourite tan suede boots and when I go back to Ireland I will proudly walk around Dublin in this beautiful piece of clothing and remember my lovely Dad ☘

    • Janette Watson September 15, 2021 at 8:57 pm

      I love the pinafore dress, it would be great for all weathers. In winter with a polo neck, or summer with a strappy vest.
      I love the hood too, I live on a boat in Cornwall, so it would be perfect for the coming storms!

  • Katie Griffin September 12, 2021 at 7:29 am

    I have recently become more aware of the world we live in and the planet we are leaving for future generations. I have spent part of this year trying to live a better life and reduce my waste, which has included clothes that have become almost disposable. I have come across this brand recently and fallen in love with the reasons behind the brand. My favourite is the rosalind navy top, which when I next need a new long term piece of clothing will be carefully selected. I love the Hoody and would be a great classic piece for the start of my daughters collection as I hope to build her a classic wardrobe rather than a disposable.

  • Nicky September 12, 2021 at 7:35 am

    The jumpsuit is the perfect outfit for an autumnal art gallery visit. Relaxed style that will work for an Indian Summer with a shawl, wrap or cardi for the evening, or with a long sleeved tee under and short boxy jacket over for crisper days

  • Suzanne September 12, 2021 at 7:38 am

    The Double B 100% linen jacket is both stylish and practical; perfect for my hobby of walking and photography in my local country park.

  • Gill spooner September 12, 2021 at 7:40 am

    I love the jumpsuit to wear with a hand knit Icelandic jumper for dog walking on cold winter days

  • Joanna Andrews September 12, 2021 at 7:46 am

    There’s something beautifully timeless and ethereal about the subtle muted earth tones of these linen garments. They evoke a feeling, an emotion, a precious simplicity. It’s knowing you are carrying on an age-old tradition and wearing effortlessly stylish natural cloth. It’s enjoying the comfort of the soft draping fabric against your skin. The loose, easy wear shaping and rich colour of the pinafore dress evoke all of these sensations. Teamed with the hooded scarf, or worn with a slouchy top, what better way to step into autumn?

  • Linda Radford September 12, 2021 at 7:47 am

    I love all the styles but in particular the pinafore dress which would look equally as good with a T-shirt or linen Peter Pan collar blouse underneath in warmer weather and as many layers of jumpers, cardigans and a petticoat in cooler clime; love the muted colours too.

  • Jean Vaughan September 12, 2021 at 8:09 am

    100% Linen Classic Dress Teal with Mustard is my perfect dress, a classic style, easy to wear no matter what occasion. It would look equally good with knee high or ankle boots topped with a chunky sweater or box cardigan.

  • Jane Pullan September 12, 2021 at 8:22 am

    I love the idea of the reversible coat to go with the hooded scarf but because of the colour I’m in love with the teal pinafore dress – I can see it by itself in better weather, or with a long sleeved t-shirt and thick tight through the winter

  • Miriam Thompson September 12, 2021 at 8:30 am

    I could see myself wearing the whole collection, it is so refreshing to see not only sustainable clothing but made in the UK so beautifully. I would very easily wear the 100% Linen T top in Sand. It could be dressed up with a skirt or smart trousers and heels or worn every day with jeans. The pop of colour would bring a subtle yet eye catching detail to each look.

  • Denise Davies September 12, 2021 at 8:34 am

    The hand embroidered scarf
    You can dress up any outfit with a scarf.

  • MARIA ROGERS September 12, 2021 at 8:36 am

    I love the rustic pleat strap dress that would be the perfect dress for a beach holiday to throw over a swimsuit for a walk to the beach bar for a cocktail

  • Brenda Beale September 12, 2021 at 8:43 am

    Gorgeous ideas to mix and match pieces…I never bought any linen pieces whilst working because at the end of my duty having my outside clothes in a locker all day they could look a little wilted but now I am retired I cannot wait to indulge myself.
    All of your clothes have given me a new interest in linen and the colours are beautiful the pinafore dress especially. Thank you for brightening my day.

  • Kelly Glen September 12, 2021 at 8:44 am

    The hoodie scarf would be my choice because it is stylish but would be great for keeping warm in the winter. The collection looks such good quality and beautiful.

  • Alison Ruane September 12, 2021 at 8:57 am

    I am dreaming of myself in the navy wrap dress. I love the rich colours and simple flowing designs.

  • Allison Gasper September 12, 2021 at 9:06 am

    Love the rustic pleat strap dress: perfect for late summer days.

  • Leah Tonna September 12, 2021 at 9:09 am

    I adore the Hand Embroidered Linen Scarf, the strength of linen with a delicate look and feeling of lightness.

  • Vicky Hart September 12, 2021 at 9:35 am

    I love the 100% Linen Pinafore Dress Teal, I’d wear it paired with a linen blouse underneath.
    I’d wear it whilst out walking with my children, foraging blackberry and sloes.

  • Tricia Kidd September 12, 2021 at 9:56 am

    I would love the 100% linen 3/4 sleeve dress in sand!!! It would be the main staple to a mix and match wardrobe taking me from warm summer days on it’s own to the cooler months with layering with a blouse and black linen slacks underneath and perhaps topped off with the beautiful hooded scarf! It’s my favourite fabric…LINEN!!

  • Elizabeth Jenkins September 12, 2021 at 10:01 am

    I love the natural colours of all the clothes but especially of the pinafore dress. It reminds me of the happy days of youth while being both useful and sophisticated.

  • Margaret Mitchell September 12, 2021 at 10:14 am

    I adore the rust coloured wrap dress with the extra detail on the sleeve and the back of the skirt. A versatile little number that could be worn formally or casually. Perfect style for me being a plus size.

  • Catherine Parker September 12, 2021 at 10:15 am

    I love the 100% linen reversible hoodie scarf – it looks so versatile and would be a great accessory as well as a welcome, comforting but stylish weather protector for colder days to come. I could snuggle into it knowing I looked great!

  • Helen C Shaw September 12, 2021 at 10:15 am

    The Rust wrap dress, wonderful autumn colour, memories of walks in russet woods.

  • Liz Crawford September 12, 2021 at 10:21 am

    what a lovely prize

  • Tracy Anne Moses September 12, 2021 at 10:59 am

    Making my selection from the Lemuel MC collection, the Rosalind 83 top gets my vote.
    I’d layer those ruffles and classic raw edges with a timeless 9os coat.
    Ethical clothes are my passion, I don’t like fast fashion and linen is sustainable not fast.
    So wear this collection and have a blast in versatile clothes made to last.

  • Julie Shackson September 12, 2021 at 11:11 am

    That Wrap Dress looks like the perfect layering garment to take long forest walks.

  • Lorraine Fiander September 12, 2021 at 11:31 am

    I would love to own/wear the 3/4 Sleeve Classic Green Dress over: my orange long sleeve, layering, jersey top; long, dark orange cotton Broderie Anglaise petticoat; brown tights and flat, deep red boots. Button fronted, lightweight pure linen is a perfect addition to the temperature regulating, ethically conscious wardrobe of 30+26 woman 🙂

  • judy kennedy September 12, 2021 at 11:34 am

    I’m feeling a Jane Austen vibe with all this flowy linen. I can see me in times of lockdown ‘take a turn about the room’ in my 100% Linen Wendy Over Dress and then step out in the 100% Linen ‘Rosalind 83’ LBD Dress to do my Tesco shop

  • Louisa September 12, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    That hooded scarf would be fabulous for windy autumn days out walking!

  • Jenn Gillies September 12, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    I have always wanted to have beautiful linen pieces in my wardrobe. These are classically gorgeous. I would love the Linen Pinafore dress in Teal. It is perfect for all seasons.

  • Jody Cork September 12, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    Having booked a trip to Italy next year, and researching the stylish Italian ladies style, I would love a piece of beautiful Linen-wear (I’m thinking the Rosalind top) to promenade along Lake Garda in and show how stylish a Brit can be.

  • Tri September 12, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    I love the unisex shirting in petrol, which I would pair with some high waisted yellow trousers, some silver jewellery, a a good pointed pair of flats.

  • Caroline K September 12, 2021 at 12:54 pm

    I think the scarf is really clever and unique. A lovely thing to own.

  • Elsie September 12, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    beautiful scarf – both in design and colour.

  • Joo Dee September 12, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    very nice indeed, love it!

  • JW September 12, 2021 at 1:35 pm

    I love all the classic linen dresses – hopefully when we are allowed to travel there we will be taking a (twice) postponed holiday to Vietnam and Cambodia and linen is the perfect choice for the weather we will (hopefully) experience there

  • Margaret Clarkson September 12, 2021 at 1:42 pm

    Earth 100% Linen Jacket – the style and colours are amazing, so eye catching. I would wear it to meet friends for lunch, it would look splendid.

  • Felicity Mary Williams September 12, 2021 at 1:54 pm

    The scarf is so lovely, I would wear it with trousers and a top x

  • Carol Bird September 12, 2021 at 2:58 pm

    I love the Ally Bee collaboration. The pinafore dress in particular is stunning.

  • Hazel Rea September 12, 2021 at 3:07 pm

    The grey pinafore dress would be incredibly versatile – not only could it be dressed up or down but it could adapt so easily to the seasons depending on the weight (and colour) of the top put underneath. The grey would open a huge range of colours to complement it. The hoodie scarf would also be very versatile.

  • Jo Ikin September 12, 2021 at 3:23 pm

    \i love the wrap dress simple elegant and would take me from day to evening effortlessly

  • Penny Harper September 12, 2021 at 3:26 pm

    Just the thought of wrapping myself in soft linen clothes makes me relax. There’s just something special about your styles, materials and colours that have timeless elegance around them. And a Lemuel MC hoodie scarf, from Britainwithlove, will compliment any outfit I choose to wear, during any season, with panache.

  • Laura Pritchard September 12, 2021 at 4:39 pm

    I love the 3/4 Sleeve Classic Dress Royal Check – I’d wear it over black leggings in the garden and slobbing about at weekends.

  • Iain maciver September 12, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    love the jumpsuit to wear with a hand knit Icelandic jumper

  • Miriam Cheeseman September 12, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    I love the pinafore dress, it would get so much use as I could wear it with T shirts in the warmer weather and thin jumpers when it is cooler. I even think a pretty blouse would look good under it too. So versatile.

  • ms clark September 12, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    I love the hand embroidered linen scarf as it is beautiful, versatile and will add a touch of glamour to an outfit or coat. There were many other items I could have chosen, like a cosy jumper that I would love to curl up inbut the scarf would go with so many outfits. I love natural materials and think we should all be wearing/using them for our health and the health of the planet xxx

  • Annabel Greaves September 12, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    I love the great Ally-Bee collaboration jumpers, perfect cosy Autumn wear

  • Jenny Meer September 12, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    Love the hoodie scarf and the wrap dress – timeless and ageless

  • Marie September 12, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    I look better with fluid draping fabrics, so I usually do not wear linen successfully. The hood may be an exception! However, there were many pieces in the collection that I admired. In particular the Rosalind dress with its dramatic ruffle. The sustainability ethos is appreciated, and designs with a nod to the past mean that I will keep an eye on this company in case they do ever introduce other fabrics (or linen that has been softened out even more). If they come out with knitted linen, that would have even greater wearability. To be honest, the average person’s bone structure usually cannot wear these kind of designs and look polished. The average person actually looks very frumpy in linen. But because these designs are so distinctive, those who do have the body lines and face structure that can handle the drama of linen will appreciate this company’s offerings. It is wonderful to have clothing options that dare to be a little more different, and give us more “personality” than we normally see in chain store clothing lines. And because linen is so friendly on the environment, I would love to see more of it used in furnishings, bed linens, accessories and more. Kudos to this company and its founder/designer for daring to bring something fresh and responsible to the fashion world.

  • Catherine Mumby September 12, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    I adore the DAY dress and the Pleated Dresses. Both are gorgeous and I would live in them all the time, doing things like working on my knitting or needlepoint, or wearing them out to the Farmer’s Market, or to a social event with my flat sandals. Wearing linen makes me feel very elegant and comforted at the same time. Everything you make is gorgeous.

  • Sheena Batey September 12, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    100% Linen T top so simple but classy it can be worn with anything so massively versatile

  • i Trigonis September 12, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    I love linen! Would wear the pinafore dress with various shirts underneath, or tunics on top. Love the classic 3/4 sleeve dress, which I would wear as a dress or over pants/skirt as a long tunic, + over other dresses as a light layer/coat. The Reversible hood would be great just as an accent on top of other dresses + in windy weather. These linen clothes are blank slates for adding embellishments, pockets, patches, embroidery, stamping. Endless possibilities with linen! This is a dream package.

  • Lorraine Daniel September 12, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    100% Linen 3/4 Sleeve Classic Dress Petrol Screams quality and comfort. With the knowledge that the material is natural.

  • Debby September 12, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    I like the idea of the pinafore dress as it should be a flexible piece of clothing, fine for smart casual and perfect for day-to-day-wear. Importantly for me, I have been looking for dresses that have pockets as I can’t go anywhere without my inhalers and it’s not always practical to carry a bag around with me. I also like that this piece would work for all seasons as could layer it with something under it or over it as the weather changes yet still good for spring/summer days. If I couldn’t find a dress I’d consider a skirt or trousers that had pockets.

  • Ann Calland September 12, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    Love the black Linen skirt, very versatile and great with a bright coloured blouse or cosy jumper and boots.

  • janine atkin September 12, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    the rosilind top looks lovely to wear to a bbq

  • Jelena September 12, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    The Lemuel MC collection is a wonderful inspiration for me. Simplicity, elegance and beautiful colors are what I really like, both in fashion and in the interior as well. I would be overjoyed to be the proud owner of something from your collection. I am from Serbia, a small country in Europe where the standard is very modest but I really like to follow nice things like your site. Thanks for the inspiration. Ohh that scarf, such a great peace of art!

  • Tracey Foster September 12, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Adore your Linen Pinafore Dress in Teal, caught my eye straight away. Would look beautiful teamed with a mustard thick knit polo neck jumper underneath, bring a splash of colour to my autumn and winter wardrobe.

  • Sarah Bailey September 12, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Ah such a hard question as they have so many lovely pieces I do love the 100% Linen Artists Top in orange / check I think it could go with so many different outfits, dress it with jeans or trousers and it would work perfectly.

  • Matilda Mummery September 12, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    It’d be lovely to try the linen classic dresses! They like such a great way to wear something cute but also be comfy at the same time! You could wear them almost anywhere haha! 🙂

  • Craig September 12, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Love the scarf, excellent eloquent design

  • Ruby Homawala September 13, 2021 at 1:27 am

    Love the Linen wrap dress. I’d love to have the rust and the navy blue. The dress looks like just the thing for my size. I also like the hoodie scarf.

  • Brita Bevis September 13, 2021 at 9:08 am

    I love the 100% Linen Reversible Loosie Jacket. Versatile and comfortable, it’s just what I need on my electric pedal assist adult tricycle trips. I took up tricycling recently, as I have been advised by my hospital consultant that I need to exercise and lose weight before I can have a hip replacement op. I suffer with painful osteoarthritis, and am unable to walk or cycle on two wheels. A lose, breathable fabric jacket would be perfect for me, as on my trips, I meet up for coffee etc with friends. The jacket reverses, and would give me a stylish ‘new look’ on arrival at our rendezvous!

  • Smiles September 13, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Pinafore dress for me. What a great look. Dress it up or down for any occasion. Simply chic. Love it

  • Fleur September 13, 2021 at 10:12 am

    I love the Double B 100% Linen Jacket. It’s such a classic universal take on the military jacket but so much more versatile perfect for the changeable weather and would instantly level up any outfit from day to night. So excited about potentially getting a voucher and being able to have this piece to elevate my own wardrobe. XF

  • Brigitte Gorez September 13, 2021 at 10:28 am

    I love the hoodie scarf, I would wear it with the linen face mask or the kerchief. I really love the turquoise scarf as well as it is my favourite colour. I would also like to try the linen coats as I never realised linen could be warm. I think it’s wonderful all these companies produce sustainable and ethical clothing.

  • Vicki September 13, 2021 at 11:49 am

    I really like the 100% Linen 9os Coat, probably in the teal. It is such a lovely shade, and could imaging striding forward in it, meaning business. Nice to have a brighter shade to counteract the oncoming gloom of shorter winter days as well….

  • James September 13, 2021 at 11:50 am

    I really like the 100% Linen Over Shirt, in denim shade. It is practical and not too fussy, I’d like to think maybe a little like myself!

  • Brenda Hearn September 13, 2021 at 2:17 pm

    All of the clothing is unique and lovely. I would love to have one of each. The scarf would be just beautiful. The lovely face inside is an added bonus to the wearer.

  • Caroline Bradley September 13, 2021 at 3:49 pm

    To be honest my favourite item is the Linen Hoodie Scarf itself. I hate wearing woolly hats and often use a large shawl instead; the hoodie would be such a smart alternative.

  • Michelle Annette Rayner September 13, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Love the jumpsuit. So easy to wear and can be worn with a t-shirt or jumper beneath so goes through the seasons

  • Michelle lintern September 14, 2021 at 7:49 am

    Love the jumpsuit. Perfect both for lounging at the weekend or pottering around doing autumn jobs in the garden, ideal for layering as it gets cooler.

  • Galina Varese September 14, 2021 at 3:12 pm

    The reversible hoodie scarf made me think of the romantic heroine from The Three Musketeers, Constance Bonacieux. So elegant and timeless.

  • Susan B September 14, 2021 at 4:41 pm

    Very taken with the 100% Linen Pinafore Dress Navy. It looks deliciously comfortable and versatile and I would wear it all year.

  • Hester McQueen September 14, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Love Linen clothing. The Double B 100% Linen Jacket in Navy would be timeless and perfect for every season. Its elegance would take me from morning through to the evening. I feel its very versatile and I will be able to pair with wardrobe staples I already own..

  • Ruth Harwood September 20, 2021 at 7:28 am

    Love the Hand Embroidered Linen Scarf, I wear scarves a lot to support a slipped disc in my neck, & love a nice warm one in winter and a nice airy one for winter – though I admit I own about 10 at the moment & counting!!

  • Mrs Theresa Thomas September 20, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    The Double B 100% linen jacket is both stylish and practical; perfect for walking cooler days out.

  • Bridget Adkins September 22, 2021 at 9:41 am

    So Hard to choose just one item but a pinafore or jumpsuit would be my first choice as so versatile and love the quality of fabric and design .

  • Tracey Foster September 22, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    The natural fibres and colour ways of the collection are very appealing and on trend while retaining a timeless look.
