Contemporary Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugito draws us deep into his world of meditative calm, where softly diffused gray light like that of GRAY CASHMERE Linen expands across vast areas of empty space.
Sugito made his name in the 1990s as a leader in the Tokyo-pop movement alongside Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara, but his brand of the style was quieter and more contemplative, combining tranquil expanses of empty space with tiny, barely seen trees, furniture, or mystical kawaii creatures.

Fluffy, dimensional, and simply a joy to live with - you’ll feel like a sewing maestro when you pull this cloth out of its first dry cycle.

The fabric arrives flat with a subtle basket-like weave. This weaving technique comes with a delightful surprise once it goes through its first wash and dry.

The threads that are woven to make the outside of the squares - they “lift up”.
The threads that are used to weave the inside of the squares - those “drop-down”.

You get a cloth that looks like squares of a freshly made waffle deliciousness. It is just that yummy!

This cloth is wider than our usual selection at 84" wide.  Once it is washed - the cloth will shrink to get that dimensional waffle surface.
Approximate shrinkage - the width of cloth shrinks 17% (weft of the fabric) and 28% on the length ( warp of the fabric). Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

Waffle weave cloth is great for:
- Bath towels
- Robes
- Throws
- Duvet covers
- Pillow shams
- Lounge garments
- Decorative pillows
- Curtains
- Beach towels
- Picnic blankets
- items that need to have dimension and softness

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Wonderful set

I was not sure if I would like a linen/cotton towels being accustomed to terry cloth, but wanted to give them a try as my terry cloth ones were not holding up well and quickly looked dingy from hard water despite having a water softener. I'm so glad I did. Each time I wash these towels they become more textured, get softer and the color has stayed true. The towels are larger than the ones I normally buy, but guests have mentioned they loved wrapping up in a larger towel. Next time I would make the hand towels a bit larger in order to serve as a head wrap since they are so absorbant. I have made two sets. the first set took a long time because I pulled out my ruler and iron and started to fold the edges perfectly. Luckily before I tackled the second set, I happened to read someone else reveiw that mentioned they finger press seams when sewing with linen. Simply finger pressing and using the woven grid as a guide made all the difference in terms of time and the finished towels look no different. These would definitely make a wonderful gift!

Love of linen.

I have made towels out of this material. I really love how soft they feel. I left the edges unsewn and I love the feathery edges. Love all the linen I have bought from Fabric-Store over the years and the patterns.

Loved this

This was made into a throw. I turned in the edges 1/2 inch then 1 inch and the edges were perfect. Very soft and cuddly. Would love to make a big bouncy sweater with this fabric.

What fun! Great result.

Over the last couple months, I've been working on a quilt, and it will probably keep me busy for another month, or more. So, to take a break and actually accomplish something I ordered this fabric - enough to make a throw. It turned out great! Two days, and I have a marvelously textured throw. It has nice weight and drape. Consider making gifts with this. Great stuff!
