Bleached color is achieved by "stripping" the natural pigment out of the fibers( just like you would with bleaching hair). What you are left with is a very soft shade that is just ever so slightly an off-white color. 
Bleached is the basics of any project and loves being dyed. It is actually what we use to dye the colors. A truly versatile base and a must-have addition to your fabric repertoire.

A finer quality 5.3 ounce medium weight 58 inch wide 100% linen that is woven with finer threads, and an increased thread count. The higher thread count makes 1C64 shrink less and gives this linen a very smooth and luxurious look and feel, earning it the moniker "luxury linen".

About how much can I expect this to shrink? I want to make a bath sheet with it. What percentage do I need to add for shrinkage? Thanks!

Heidi • July 5, 2023

Hello, This fabric's approximate shrinkage is 7% when washing using our recommended methods.

Is this one perfect for a tablecloth please?

Yes, this is an ideal fabric for a tablecloth

I don't know anything about dying linen, but could you dye this linen sparkling white for an altar cloth?

Hello, it is quite difficult to 'dye' fabrics brighter whites, you will need to look into an optical brightener. Otherwise, there is a similar medium weight fabric, IL019, which is optic white.

Lauren • May 12, 2023

What is the max amount of yards we can order in on reem or not cut. I'm looking to make curtains for big slider doors. Thanks

Sarah • March 17, 2023

Depending on the linen our rolls sizes are approximately 50 yards. If you are inquiring about the 1C64 then it would be 50 yards on one roll.

Maureen • March 17, 2023

How does FC64 differ from IL19?

There is a helpful article on our blog that explains the differences, this is the link blog.fabrics-store.com/2009/02/10/a-limited-time-sale-on-finer-quality-medium-weight-linen/

Is this the fabric most similar to organdy? Is it the best one to use for a bridal trousseau? Would handkerchief linen IS020 be a better choice? Thanks Lauren!

JOAN • October 16, 2023

The IL020 fabric is made of fine linen threads and has a smooth hand. It isn't as sheer as Organdy, but is the closest you'll get in our 100% linen fabric.

Lauren • October 16, 2023

Would like to know if this is 100% flax linen?

Hello, Does this Linen need to be mordanted for natural dyes? I have been doing flower bundling and natural dying with your Linen and they take the color beautifully, but I do scour and mordant... Thank you for your time, Nancy

Please look to your email, I will send a tutorial for natural dying that will be helpful.

Maureen • September 11, 2022

I should add that the link to get the dyeing instructions is toward the bottom of the homepage.

Josefine • September 11, 2022

I don't think you need to scour, just wash. But you will have to use mordant to get a long-lasting dye. I am getting this from the dying instructions I got from fabrics-store.com. You can get a PDF sent to you if you click on the link at the bottom of this website.

This is special linen - very fine & smooth. I use it for special makes. The only possible negative is that it was difficult to thread-straighten.

Great Fabric

I now have every style & weight of F-S's linen & I love them all. I've made curtains with IL020 but this weight is perfect for all-season apparel; for me this means dresses. Don't hesitate to buy this.

smooth, beautiful

I think I prefer this to the softened version, because I view all linen with an eye to counted thread work. The unsoftened versions are crisper and the threads are better defined. For garments, however, the softened versions are nice.

Top quality fabric, I highly recommend it

I loved the weight and the slight silkiness to this fabric. I used Shibori hand tying dye techniques on mine

Found it!

High quality linen at a reasonable price. It us encouraging that I can find quality linen for my sewing interests. If they can keep us in business, then we can keep them in business.

I made top (JoAnns) and skirt. The skirt is from FS.com in heavy. I love the ease of use with fabric and we've found if you put some dryer sheets in dryer for a 5-10 min spin you get less stinking. .... #addictedtolinen Best healing fabric! MJ

MJ • February 1, 2024

Arguably, my favorite thing about this pattern is that the only speed bump with linen (so many wrinkles!) essentially doesn't exist given its bias drape. Any time I wear a linen dress cut on the grain, it tends to immediately crease; but given that the grain is diagonal, it stays looking beautiful and crease free the whole time!

Kelsey • September 25, 2023

I love the asymmetrical quality of this blouse made in your lovely IC64 bleached linen. It looks great with black slacks and fits like a dream. I made this with Simplicity pattern S9106.

Jeannette • October 26, 2022

I designed this cropped peasant top using a shibori hand tying dye technique. This linen took the dyes beautifully.

I designed this Asymmetrical linen dress using a shibori hand tying technique. (I also free hand crocheted the tenacle shawl). Look inspired by sea creatures. Available at The Fitting Room in Mpls, MN.
