IL085 Navel Orange is a Jacquard cloth created by weaving different color threads to create intricate patterns - or paintings woven with thread. This particular design carries a pattern of oranges, leaves, and blossoms surrounded by symmetrical borders. 

The engineering of this cloth allows the Jacquard to be read equally well from either side - you have a reversible fabric that changes its dominant color scheme depending on what side you pick.

The bright colors add a modern aesthetic to this classical pattern allowing items made from this cloth to be right at home in traditional as well as modern interiors. Design created exclusively for F|S

IL085 is woven out of the same long-staple wet-combed 100% linen thread we use to weave everyone's favorite All-Purpose medium weight IL019. However, because it needed to be thicker for towels, it has a 16% higher thread count and therefore a heavier weight of 6.8 ounces a square yard.

This fabric is narrow at 20" wide with a finished selvage - this allows you to spend less time cutting and sewing and get to the fun part of using your items sooner. Because this cloth is woven using the same size thread with nearly an identical thread count for warp and weft - the fabric will have even shrinkage of 8% both for length and width. Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

This fabric is 100% linen ( flax) and has received rigorous Oeko-Tex certification ensuring that the items are biodegradable, recyclable, and free of harmful toxins or irritants.

Narrow width does take some creative adjusting.

Narrow cloth is perfect for:

  • Bags
  • Placemats and napkins
  • Runners
  • Decorative Pillows
  • Appliance Covers
  • Potholders
  • Aprons
  • and, of course, Kitchen Towels ( these will leave no lint on glass and are great for fine china and crystal)

Hi Maureen, I wonder if I can take the Lore Linen and make my own bias tape to go around a throw?

Flaws in fabric weaving

When this naval orange jacquard went on sale, I jumped to buy 3 yards to make a table runner. Running through the middle of the 3 yards, however, were multiple fabric flaws. Two were 1" long and three were 3" long each. This was a disappointment because, as a table runner, every inch is used and exposed in the project. I had bought this fabric before in another color and had no problems. Just a fluke, I guess.

Kitchen towel linen

I am so in love with this linen. I purchased this and other colors to make some towels.. It is the greatest fabric ever. The colors are bright and adds to the beauty. I have made 16 and given them to friends and family and I have to say that I am over the moon with them. I will definitely be getting more in the future.

poor quality

This is the first time I have been disappointed with the linen I have purchased from F/S. The general quality is poor. I had to pull threads to true the fabric. (One pull I lost 2 inches!) The amount of lint!!! (7 washings!) (The heavy weight jacquard I have purchased only needed five...) The completed towels look like they are made of cheap fabric.

Too much lint

For me the lint was far worse than a minor inconvenience. I've purchased other linens here that have lint problems, but nothing like this. Clumps of lint remain in the washing machine, and big clumps of lint attach to the fabric as well. I washed and machine dried the fabric three times, and it was still covered with lint.

Spot On

The color was just as I saw it on the computer -- not always true. The one thing that was just a little inconvenient was the amount of lint produced by this fabric. When I washed it, I was really surprised. I got it to make towels for my daughter's birthday, and I have the finished product wrapped and ready to give.

I made tea towels with this naval orange design. It's truly a beautiful fabric. It doesn't have the body of some of the tighter woven linens but I expect it to function well. I have listed these in my Etsy shop debralynnedesigns

Although it feels less substantial than your other narrow linen, I love the old world charm combined with the bold colors! I have made some tea towels from it that are available in my Etsy shop (Squirrelly Ging Designs). Norene
