IS010 Waffle Optic White Softened - 54% Linen / 46% Cotton Fabric - Medium (6.2 oz/yd2) - 20.00 Yards, Width 84"
$358.92 per item (10% off)
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 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).

Customer Questions and Answers
Is it possible to leave a raw hem on this fabric or will it run??
Hello, Its a good idea to run a line or two of stitching along the edges you'd like a small fringe. The fabric will continue to fray and drop loose threads if you don't protect it in this way.
I want to make 4 hand towels and 4 wash clothes. How much fabric will I need?
Two questions: How thick does fabric appear after its washed, 1/8", 1/4", etc.? And does it easily snag on rings or jewelry? I have a waffle weave robe and my ring catches on it and pulls the threads. Thanks for your help.
Once washed it fluffs up nicely, not overly thick. We have not received any complaints that it pull or snags easily. I was able to run my rings back and forth over the laundered item with no issue.
Will this fabric dye well? You used to carry a cerulean blue that was gorgeous, but don't seem to offer it anymore. So I am looking for alternative ways to get the same color with this fabric.
If you are going to dye the waffle linen/cotton you would want to use the bleached as the optic may interfere with the dye. If you can wait until early December ( maybe sooner) we will receive more of the Cerulean waffle at that time.
When making towels is this fabric meant to be cut and hemmed before or after washing and drying? Thank you.
When following our cutting and sewing tutorial on the blog, please cut and sew first, then wash your towels. Here is the link to the blog post: blog.fabrics-store.com/2021/07/21/tutorial-how-to-make-waffle-bath-towels/

Would this fabric be suitable for baby blankets etc?
Yes, many of our customers have used this fabric for baby blankets and even towels.
Love Elaine's pattern❣️❣️❣️ I'll make it for a swimsuit jacket. This time of year it's always cool n the evenings when I swim. When I get out of the pool and the winds hit, it's dash into the house. I need more measurements.
I want to make drapes/curtains with this fabric. However, I like the tight and flat surface of the weave of the fabric prior to washing. Is it possible to use fabric and not pre wash. Or if is prewash, can I achieve that flat look via ironing. Please advise
No, on this item, once you wash it the waffle plumps up and will not go back to that flat look that it has prior to washing even with ironing. You do not have to pre-wash as long as going forward you spot or dry clean the curtains to maintain the flat look.
How much fabric do I need for a set of towels? How do I get the pattern? Thank you
Good afternoon - 3 yards to make 2 bath towels, 1 hand towel, and 2 wash cloths. The article with steps is here: blog.fabrics-store.com/2021/07/21/tutorial-how-to-make-waffle-bath-towels/ You can change/increase your towel sizes just be mindful that the fabric has different shrinkage for width and length. You will need to make sure to account for that when you are cutting out your desired towel sizes. Hope this helps. Have fun and email us if you have questions.

Made a beautiful baby blanket from the waffle weave white fabric and used Liberty of London fabric for the binding trim to sell at DahliaDaysDesign.etsy.com. Turned out so sweet!
Love, love this fabric for towels. This set is a gift. It dries quickly and doesn't hold orders. Just a caution: if you use a dryer, check the lint filter often. It's very linty for awhile.
I prewashed and dried this fabric aggressively, then sewed up a bath robe in very generous sizing. After washing and drying it on a very delicate setting that is usually safe even for rayon, it shrank another probably 15% , and while I can stretch it a little in one direction to recover some, not in the other. Directions should include multiple prewashes . It's also difficult to work with, but that's to be expected. Just very disappointed in money and time spent
Hello, We're sorry you experienced extra shrinkage after you pre-washed your fabric. We strongly advise that you prewash your fabric in the same manner you plan on washing your finished item. No aggressive techniques required. Make sure you use lots of water as this is key to pre-shrinking your fabric, not heat. So most high efficiency machines and front loaders may require additional pre-washes to fully pre-shrink your fabric.

I was so curious about this fabric that I ordered a yard of the Optic White, without a specific idea of what I would make. I decided to cut two washcloths and make them first, then wash and dry before using the rest of the fabric. I followed the dimensions listed on the website, carefully identifying the length and width so the shrinkage would be correct. I LOVE THIS FABRIC! My only advice is to make mitered corners as it gives such a nicer look than having a bulky corner. And I made two rows of stitching along each edge to help get a neater and flatter edge. I made 6 washcloths and 1 large hand towel from one yard. I was afraid the fabric would feel too rough after washing but it is a nice mix of texture and softness. I use white washcloths as you would paper towels and am happy to have extra ones, especially as nice as these are.
I do not sew. My husband does, though! Well, I wanted to learn and thought that making towels would be a good start. This was such a great product to work with, especially forgiving for the somewhat crooked stitches of a beginner. I used the pattern/measurements to make two large towels, a hand towel and two wash cloths. I opted to do two large towels and two hand towels, using every bit of the three yards of fabric. They turned out beautifully. They're a Christmas gift for my girlfriend who LOVES things that are hand made. Now I want to make a set for US!!
I made a Sweet Baby blanket using the white softened waffle weave linen cotton and trimmed it with Liberty of London fabric to sell in my shop - it is listed at DahliaDaysDesign.etsy.com! It's so textured and beautiful! I love using your beautiful linen fabrics for items I sew to sell!
