IL019 All-purpose Bleached Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2) - 20.00 Yards, Width 59"
$284.40 per item (10% off)
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.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.
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
How many yards on a bolt?
Our bolts are sold in 20 yard increments.
Is this or the Luxury linen better for a bath towel? Thanks!
Although this weight is not widely used for bath towels you can use either or for this purpose, but most of our customers prefer our heavier linens or waffle weave for their bath towels.
I need to order three bolts of 1lO19 bleached softened linen fabric to make drapes. Do you have a drapery liner that comes in the 59" width to match this drapery width?
Most of our customers that use another linen for the lining will use the IL020 at 58 inches in width or the use a lighter weight cotton lawn or voile which unfortunately we do not carry.
I have an antique lamp with a damaged shade that a custom upholsterer is refurbishing for me- is this an appropriate fabric for interior lining and exterior?
We would recommend getting a sample so you can see and feel the fabric in person, this way you can assess if it has the right light filtering properties you need.
How much shrinkage occurs with this fabric?
Expected shrinkage is 7-10% based on our recommended wash instructions which you will find in out help center located at the footer of our main webpage.
What's the difference between the bleached and bleached softened linen?
The only difference is the way the linen is finished. Softened linen has a softener applied to the linen to give it a smooth, silky hand, it has not been laundered so you will need to consider shrinkage (7-10%). Non-softened (no finish) linen will have a stiffer hand, but will eventually soften to that nice supple hand that all linens eventually come to with wash and use. You will need to consider shrinkage here as well (7-10%).
Would this linen be suited to furniture slipcovers ?
It can and has been used for slipcovers for items that are not considered "High Use" if it is then you may want to consider a heavier linen. Ordering a swatch to see the linen will also help in making your choice.
Karin Beaverton, Oregon: How do we contact you about your hand-painted linen fabrics? Patricia
I reached out to Karin and she provided her contact information through Instagram use the symbol at ( it won't show here) Karin,Graves,Painter,Designer.
The linen came with a very heavy sizing on it, once I washed and dried it, and the sizing washed out, the fabric surface became bubbly/wavy and slubby. Also, it is much coarser than what the description states it should be. I was going to use it for a dress but it is not suitable for that purpose. I will use it as a bathrobe most likely, or towels.
I love all the Lenin that I have gotten and they feel amazing. I also love how they are always offering deals it makes it very affordable. Please don't change a thing.
Ever since I found this linen store it's the only fabric I've bought. I love their linens. The feel, drape and quality are all amazing!
I have now bought this linen twice - once for Christmas gifts and again for myself!! The fabric washes and handles beautifully (I washed/dryed it hot, since you never know how the end user will wash it). If you like to use the "pull a thread" method of cutting, this linen works perfectly, but it is also easy to cut flat on my table. I haven't finished my gifts yet (since, well, covid) but so far it sews up like a dream! 100% recommend for anyone looking for apparel fabric!!
I love this fabric for hand dying projects. This pair of pants I made for my daughter. I dyed the fabric with a "triple berry mix" (blueberries, raspberries and blackberries) which makes a very nice soft rose color. I particularly like the extra soft feel of this fabric especially for clothing.
I paint the design of an alphabet I found in a magazine years ago. I had a vision of people talking in the distance on the beach and the alphabet rising and falling above them as they spoke. I use Jacquards Textile paint and Airfix for setting the paint. I am totally addicted to IL019, bleached and softened linen. I sell Falling Alphabet as yardage and also in completed garments.
Here I have painted two thistles pairing them with shorthand using black Jacquard textile paint and fixer. What you see here is 9 feet of painted IL019 bleached FS Signature Linen. When you cut 2 1/2 yards for a dress you are working with only a part of the whole design. Your garment then has interesting A symmetrical features that reflect the whole design but no longer reveal it. Paired with F/S your wearing a knock out! Yes I do sell my linen paintings and I live in Beaverton , Oregon. the wearer a one of a kind knockout! Paired with
I am hand painting organic seeds, shorthand writing, equations and automatic writings to Fabric-Store.com linen. I use Jaquard textile paint and fixer. My inspiration comes from bird murmurations. I see murmuration as our abundant creativity, our abundant world. The dress pattern is Wiksten and is made from IL019 bleached linen. Its a beauty. IL019 is a perfect choice for this dress. Wash and wear. I wore it to Italy to test on a holiday with my hubby. It was perfect. I live in Beaverton, Oregon and yes I do sell what you see. Not the dress but the painted yardage. The photo shows the back of the dress size medium.
As an SCA participant, I chose to have a Kievan-Rus persona. I purchased the white linen to make a basic rubahka (chemise) and veil. This linen was lovely to work with, despite my inability to lay out my pieces properly without supervision. :P I have more linen to make other pieces, as well, and will be looking into purchasing some actual striped linen for the apron piece (which, honestly, is just a cotton dish towel).
The MYKONOS shirt FS BLEACHED Midweight Linen. The silhouette and practicality of the shirt can be easily dressed up or down. I would say it falls firmly in the part shirt, part jacket "shacket" category of clothing. I could easily see a lighter or heavier fabric looking fantastic.
