Great rustic linen
Reviewer: iowyth

Amazing soft texture and look. I used this to create undergarments and it feels great against my skin. I find the tone ever so slightly cooler in colour than the photograph, with a slight greyish tinge, but I find this to be quite normal with natural linen fibres. Great buy, for sure and I will be sure to get this again for anything else that I would like to have a rustic appeal.

I love this linen! I made my husband a robe, a dollie for my daughter, and a buckwheat pillow. This linen has the perfect weave to keep those little buckwheat hulls inside. I French hemmed it and put in an invisible zipper. I can't wait for bed tonight. I will be buying again.

I love linen
Reviewer: Marsha

Wanted to make a set of embroidered pillow cases for my son and daughter-in-law. Ordered this linen and it's so beautiful. Washed it on hot and dried to barely moist and ironed it. Marked where to embroider and marked the initial's with an iron on pen design. Embroidered the fabric then sewed the cases. Here they are so - gorgeous and a big hit.

Just what i wanted
Reviewer: M

I like the natural color &wieght of this ILO19. I paired it with a bleached of the same weight to make a dress. It turned out beautifully. There were a few chaff pieces that I had to remove to keep from rubbing my skin but they were few in this piece &easy to remove without damaging the fabric. I like the drape of this medium wieght &can't wait to wear it after this article freeze we're experiencing is over. I'm so glad to be able to buy this fabric & use it for my projects.

Surprisingly silky
Reviewer: Holly

This makes a great base for fabric painting. I wash and fully dry before using (This is the only time it will see a dryer.) This particular fabric is a bit more ravelly than the dyed versions, so i both zig zag and french seam for durability, but it is worth it. The drape and weight are perfect for 3 season apparel.

The best of the best!
Reviewer: Camille

I have bought this linen on sale over and over again. I've been sewing for over 50 years now and the linen I purchase at Fabric-store is my favorite fabric. This natural mix was first purchased to make kitchen towels and napkins as gifts to my Grown children. Then others wanted Towels, aprons, napkins, and I wanted it to re-cover my dining room chairs. The softened is so much nicer than regular linen; there isn't the intense wrinkling regular linens are known for. This color is beautiful. The linen is so comfortable, breatheable , and perfect for every skin type. Some of my friends are now purchasing this linen to reupholster chairs or to make curtains and other nice things for themselves. I'm telling you, this is a must have and purchasing any linen from this seller is going to give you more bang for your buck!! Customer service is ALWAYS delightful as well. If you want linen in a wonderful array of colors and weights, look no further. I'm not paid to give you this review. These are my honest opinions. Enjoy a wonderful experience with your own creative ideas. Oh! One final word...my adult Grand daughter is a professional hand embroiderer and this is her "go to" linen as well.

Luscious fabric
Reviewer: Judith

I have 7 colors of your medium weight linen now and I love it! First of all, the colors are beautiful. I open the package and go "Ahhhh." So far I have made a dress, dinner napkins, 3 tote bags and am working on a blouse. This linen washes beautifully and you don't need to press it unless you want to. The finished products are gorgeous. I love the way the linen moves, ripples and sways, in rhythm with the human body. Next up - a Renaissance dress. Awesome fabric!

Fabric is a bit too rustic
Reviewer: Loretta

The color, weight and price was very nice. I was very disappointed in the amount of slubs in this fabric. It IS RUSTIC to be sure, but not quite what I had expected. I have purchased the IL019 softened in several colors and love love love working with it, I found it to be very sturdy with very few and very small slubs, not like the larger slubs in this linen mix of natural and bleached. I am a bit concerned with my finished sewn pieces as I have already, while ironing the items, experienced loose threads which more than likely will become holes after several washings. I have decided to put this fabric aside for something that does not need time intensive labor, even if it is a labor of love! If you are looking for a classic mix of natural color, of medium weight yet very rustic, this will work nicely.

Amazing Fabric
Reviewer: Melissa

I love this linen so much, it's my first purchase from Fabrics Store and I was a little hesitant to try their fabrics. But I got 3 yards of this on sale and couldn't be happier. It is stiff and a bit coarse when it arrives, and smells lovely like hay or a grass meadow. I serged the edges and threw it in a hot wash and then hot dryer. It came out sooo soft and lovely! It's substantial without being coarse. It's just amazing, I will absolutely be buying this linen again!

Natural Choice
Reviewer: Alexandria

This is part of my first order from this source and I'm glad to have found it. The warp and weft threads are fairly consistent and have an even coloration through the entire piece. There's no one area with more dark than light which makes this visually appealing. The shrinkage was minimal and didn't negatively impact the yardage. There are a few large slubs that formed balls, but it they didn't impact my piece.

Versatile Neutral
Reviewer: Elizabeth

I made a pair of cropped pants with elastic waist and wide legs from Mixed Natural IL019 four years ago. I used french seams and edge stitching. I have worn (and washed) these pants at least 75 times each year. I can wear these with every single solid color in my closet-- I could pull a sleeveless tank, an oversized tunic, and linen gauze pinafore from my closet in different colors, and the Mixed Natural pants seem to pull all the colors together like magic.

This fabric is as pictured, varied threads of warm grey, beige and white. Overall, slightly warm in tone. Beautiful texture of mixed natural colors in the thread to make a rustic looking natural linen perfect for the reverse sides of my cushion covers! I'm sure it would be useful in many situations and because if its simplicity, it looks great matched with lots of other colors and patterns. It really is quite stunning and a pleasure to sew with

Fabric had a lovely tight weave yet a soft hand. It was perfect for making napkins to match a tablecloth i made out of the floral jacquard linen. The doggie bags gave me just enough fabric at a reasonable price to complete a dozen dinner napkins. Together thEy made a lovely gift for a good friend.

My Go-To fabric for everything
Reviewer: Jane

I bought the Mix Natural unsoftened linen first, and made a beautiful slipcover out of it (see that listing for posted photo). Now, I buy yardage of this color whenever it goes on sale. I use it everywhere - most recently a long window seat cushion, and yes, even for hand printed Catnip Mice (it's strong enough to resist claws)! It's a grey-toned natural color that I find goes with everything in the home. Also, the perfect color for block-printing my designs.

Great linen. Love the color, texture and the way it washes and wears. I made shorts and crop pants, they are my go to bottoms this summer.

future sheet and pillow cases
Reviewer: Mary

Love, love, love this fabric. Bought 4 yards, decided to make a summer sheet for king size bed. Bought 4 more yards. Prewashed and dried twice. Now ready for assembly. Plan on a king size summer sheet, and pillow cases for king size pillows. Have already made white regular size handkerchief linen pillow cases, so summer look will be mix natural and white on bed. NOW.......to the sewing machine to make this happen. Love all things linen and this site has been a great source. The Mix Natural could be my favorite. The white in it adds a lovely element.

Incredible, WONDERFUL Bed Sheets!
Reviewer: Karen

I purchase 7 yards of IL019. Cut it in half. Sew the two halves together with a French seam, (no raw edges after this!). Then, Hem the bottom with a clean 1/2 inch or 10mm seam. (I have a cool special foot for my Husqvarna Viking Diamond to do this quickly!). Then do a clean fold down 3\" seam at the top end. Sew it down with a Wing Needle and an Entredeux stitch for a vintage look. I use Elmer's Washable School Glue to baste this hem - use an iron to dry the glue before sewing!). This net's you a very clean straight finish!In my hot Texas Climate, these are the smoothest, coolest, most comofortable summer sheets ever... worth EVERY PENNY!

I bought 23 yards of this fabric to make duvet covers out of. it is a great weight (feels very strong and durable.... i was worried it might be too heavy but, its perfect.... i was looking for something with a bit of weight but, not too bulky or stiff for bedding). i would use this fabric to make pillow cases too. the colour is just beautiful. it looks grey to me. it actually looks exactly like shown in the picture online..... its a pretty true representation. i love it and i will be ordering much more linen in the new year.

Not what I expected
Reviewer: Susan

I'll be honest, when I opened the package of this fabric, my heart sank. It was not at all what I expected both in color and weight. The fabric is actually heavier than I expected. The color ... well, all I can say is it's not as nice as the picture shows above. The fabric contains many white \"slubs\" throughout the weave. Since I love and trust the folks at FabricStore.com, I'm going to try and make a couple of tunics or a sheath dress from this. I might just change my mind and if I do, I promise to post.
