Reviewer: A

Sheets, Sheets, Sheets!!! Soft and Wonderful! Breathable! No musty, clamy, cotton that never really dries! I have 4C22 Natural Softened as a bottom sheet, and 4C22 Mix Natural Softened as a top sheet. I didn't even need to sew anything: just zig-zagged ends. Left the Selvege. On both top and bottom sheets. Tucked bottom in at head and foot. Made top sheet ample in length. Voila! Done! Its a Full Size bed. It is absolutely a Dream! TY FS.com!!!!!

Heavy Weight Dream
Reviewer: Pam

Using this linen for aprons. Absolutely love the feel and weight of this linen. Washes up super soft and has that lovely movement of a heavy linen. So happy to have found my new source of linen supply. Also, never have met a company who responds so quickly to a purchase. It is usually just days between ordering and receiving what I have ordered. Super happy with this company.

Fun project from the Doggie Bag
Reviewer: Donna

I ordered 1/3 of a yard of this fabric from the doggie bag to try it out. I made a cute bread bag with an outside tie from a piece of cotton twill tape that was used as packaging on something I once bought. My trendy bag cost me less than $1.00. It has s just waiting for a little sourdough loaf. Pretty sure I will need more kitchen accessories to match. I really need new kitchen chair cushions ......

Great fabric
Reviewer: Joy

I purchased a bolt of "mix natural, softened" to make curtains for our living room. I have used this same fabric to make curtains for almost all the windows in our house. The curtains are simple, floor length, and hung with clip rings but the beautiful linen is what makes them something special. It is classy fabric that is a dream to work with. I love linen!

Fabulous towels
Reviewer: Nicole

I ordered 15 yards and washed and dried it twice just as it came. If you know what you want to make with it, I suggest cutting to the length you need plus a bit for shrinkage before washing because it twists in the dryer with such a long piece which creates wrinkles that must be ironed prior to cutting. Shorter lengths probably wouldn't need to be ironed . It also creates A LOT of lint, so clean the lint screen every 15 minutes or so. I made 8 double layer bath towels (50x25), 4 double layer hand towels (25x15), and have 4 approximately 11x11 pieces for embroidery. The towels are lovely and absorbent and come out of the dryer wrinkle-free. They take up little room and dry quickly. I am certain they will last much longer than my terrycloth towels. The fabric is also wonderful for embroidery. I will post photos.

Terrific choice for my project!
Reviewer: Ginger

My daughter-in-law and I buy fresh milk from a dairy farm, which means carrying glass bottles back and forth. This fabric was perfect for machine embroidering cute cow faces, and was as easy to sew as it was to cut and measure. The fabric is sturdy, yet lightweight. (I wish I could upload a picture--I am so very pleased with the results!)

Luscious Linen
Reviewer: Mary

I received this linen purchase in good time, as usual, and washed it right away. This fabric has the most beautiful drape, flow, color and feel, that I'd like to wear something made of it every day. Many people use it for home decor projects, which is wonderful, but I have to wear it. It reminds me of the ancients, and fabrics that they must have had. So beautiful; definitely worth trying.

LOVE this fabric for towels!
Reviewer: lisa

This was my first purchase from Fabrics Store and I was shocked at how fast it arrived. I ordered a few 1 yd remnants from the Doggie Bag just to get a feel for the fabric. I made a bath towel out if this particular cut and I love it so much. It is a perfect natural color and is super absorbent. The texture is slightly rough but I really like that and it almost exfoliates as it dries you. I pre-washed the fabric in hot water and dried on high heat twice to get rid of all the lint and let it shrink a bit, and this softened up the fabric a good amount too. I ended up immediately purchasing more fabric to make more towels!

Unexpected texture
Reviewer: Allison

I love the C22 heavyweights and have sewn on the natural and at least five colors. The Mix Softened has a very different, much rougher feel than any of the others. While beautiful in color and texture, it is not suitable for anything against the skin, such as apron straps, skirts, or pillows that will be touched. I wish it had been given a different category that made this clear prior to purchase, as a sample swatch was insufficient to fully appreciate the difference between this fabric and the others with the same designation.

Reviewer: Kat

Just after one wash the fabric softened up nicely. I wasn't sure the I was going to like the rustic look of the brown fabric but it does have a nice appeal in person. I'm using 1 yard to make a bath towel and if it works well I'll get more to replace all of my old cotton towels. Already I have high hopes and have ordered some more to make napkins.

Very good rustic style linen at a good value
Reviewer: Claire

Bought a large cut of this to try make a few different things. My husband told me there was no way I could make a pair of cropped linen pants that wouldn't look like a bag on him. So far this linen is just the thing- thick like a light jean and doesn't really wrinkle like the lightweight linens most pants are made with. It arrives looking very different than after it's been prewashed. Be careful with choosing a layout; I think it's about a 5% shrinkage on the width. I measured before and after and it's 59" before washing and 56" minus selvage after.

Annette profile image Really is an all-time favorite.
Reviewer: Annette

I'm embarrassed to say (and don't want to add up) how many yards of this fabric I've ordered. If I start getting low, I order more. It's the perfect neutral for absolutely EVERYTHING and makes up beautifully. This is my favorite weight of all the linens, as it has a good weight to it and doesn't wrinkle as much as the lighter weights (although still wrinkles, as linen should).

Gorgeous fabric
Reviewer: Justice

FS linen never fails to impress me. I have made quite a few projects out of the lighter weight 5.3oz linen and absolutely love it. I wanted to make a heavier weight linen jumpsuit for winter so I thought I would test out the 7.1oz and it is gorgeous. While heavier weight, it still has a lovely drape and breathes nicely. I hand paint my fabric before sewing and with this fabric, the paint didn't bleed through, which it can do on the 5.3 oz. I do recommend washing fabric before sewing (as you should always do anyway).

Makes a great safari vest!
Reviewer: Margaret

I used a favorite vest I own, carefully laying it out on paper. I used a measuring tape a LOT to get the right fit. I own a Brother Serger and this made for excellent seam control; and then I reinforced with a straight stitch. I tweaked the look using a plain muslin for the trim and one side of the collar.

Wonderful linen
Reviewer: Linda

I do a lot of sewing and love to use linen. I use the rustic to line the handbags that I make, the color seems to work with most other colors and the fabric holds up so well as a lining. I also make kitchen and bath towels with it. I gave up terry cloth towels and the musty smell they get after being wet and will never go back! I have also made clothing with the rustic linen and I've been very happy with the results.

Gorgeous for my French style home furnishings
Reviewer: Barbara

I knew when I ordered that I would love this fabric, and I absolutely do!! Taking the advice of other reviews, I washed the fabric 3 times in HOT water, and dried it on the highest heat. I took measurements before and after each wash/dry to calculate the amount of shrinkage - I knew that would be of interest to most others reading the reviews. I first serged the cut edges before washing to avoid any fraying. The fabric shrunk the most during the first wash/dry losing 3" in width from 60" down to the expected 57". The length shrunk from 57" to 54". The width remained at 57" for all other wash/dry. But, the length continued to shrink. In the 2nd wash/dry, the 54" shrunk further to 52" and after the 3rd, it shrunk to 51. Overall, that would imply approximately 10% shrinkage. For my use, I will not need to worry about further shrinkage, but I expect for clothing or any item requiring ongoing laundering, you should expect further shrinkage.

Rough and full of burrs
Reviewer: Christine

I purchased eight yards of this linen to make crib skirts for my twins' cribs. It's a good thing I didn't intend this for a garment! The weave is full of little twig-like burrs, like bits of hard, dry grass that somehow got woven in. This is consistent across the eight yards. After three washings, the fabric is still very rough, like the texture of a canvas painter's tarp. I really like IL019, but I will hesitate before buying 4C22 again.

Perfect!
Reviewer: Sharon

I have used a great deal of this linen, as well as the slightly heavier IL 090 almost exclusively for slipcovers for my home and for my job. I prewash and dry it and it comes out of the dryer gorgeous ...soft and nearly wrinkle free, but with lots of texture which gives it an earthy look. The mix/natural is quite a bit lighter in color than the plain natural, which I have also used...I like it better. There is a huge amount of lint from the first washing and dryng, but it nearly dsappears in subsequent washings. I would add that there is about a 5% shrinkage rate, so don't omit this step. It seems to wear like iron, and keeps its shape on the furniture forever. Love it....I would also add that I made a sleeveless sundress with leftovers and it's too heavy for that....it's now a winter jumper!

French styled waiter's apron. Washed fabric in hot water and dried in dryer before cutting out pattern. Very little shrinkage, if any. Made this apron from just one yard and used an old April Cornell apron as my template. Photo is a bit distorted, but the apron comes down over my knees and wraps around in the back. There is a pocket (which you can't see) in the top of the apron. If you wanted a shorter apron, it would be easy to use the extra fabric for pockets in the body of the apron.

I chose to make a hand-painted jumpsuit out of the 7.1 oz natural linen using my own pattern. I love the drape of linen and feel of linen and wanted to make a jumpsuit for myself for the fall and winter. Since I live in California, it doesn't get too cold, so I thought heavier weight linen would do the job. To add some color and pattern to the natural linen, I hand-painted it after cutting out the pattern pieces and before sewing.

I love this rustic heavy linen fabric. I purchased it for bathtub curtains after we removed the glass door! The inside plastic was meant for tablecloths but works perfectly to keep the water in. The curtains are for show and the imported German braid, which I found at a garage sale, makes a nice addition. I bought 10 yards of linen on sale and will use the rest for bread bags. I had never heard of bread bags until seeing them in posts like this on The Fabrics-Store. I've also used the heavy rustic type on place mats. I never knew I could like linen so much!
