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.

The beautiful open weave texture of this linen gives it a light, airy opaque look, making it an excellent choice for apparel, intimate apparel, accessories, interior design projects and so much more.

Deon profile image Shibori Dyed Handkerchief Linen

This is the perfect fabric for our Florida weather! Lightweight and airy, it feels like a dream. The Shibori dye technique is so easy and colors do not need to be limited to the traditional indigo. The fabric arrived in an off-white shade. I first dyed it a shade of turquoise and then used the Shibori technique with a dark blue/indigo color. It's true this linen wrinkles more easily than a signature finish, but the wrinkles look great!

Breezy Summer Kimono

Still enjoying my breezy white linen kimono I made with this. So great over tank tops on a hot summer day. Oh and had enough left to make the best cool half slip too. Way better than nylon on a hot day.

Gorgeous fabric

I LOVE linen. Living in central Florida, linen clothes are perfect. This beautiful, lightweight fabric is going to be perfect for a long sleeve shirt, sewn with my favorite pattern. I'm looking forward to sewing (& wearing!) the wonderful linen

Off-white handkerchief linen using Shibori dye technique.

Dress Made with FS BLEACHED Sheer Open Weave Linen. A good dress is a must in my closet. I absolutely love how dynamic dresses are and I must admit I had so much fun draping this beauty. It was my first time working with this type of sheer linen. I found it very easy to create and sew with. Also, it is so beautiful!

This is Folkwear's Armistice Blouse made in IL30 bleached and then dyed in black tea. The airy fabric was perfect for this dreamy pattern and was easy to work with.

I loved the transparency of the fabric and how simple it was to have curtains to draw to cast a diffused light for product photography.

Susan • September 18, 2021

This fabric worked perfectly as a diffuser for product photography. Added bonus was how delightful it is to have dual-purpose curtains in the Garden Shed Studio!
