IL085 Lemon is a Jacquard cloth created by weaving different color threads to create intricate patterns - or paintings woven with thread. This particular design carries a lemon pattern with asymmetrical borders as a modern take on a traditional design. The fact that the borders are uneven forces us to create harmony, to go a little beyond what we usually do. 
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 are a continuation of the modern aesthetic allowing these items 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)

Love color and design; Feel, texture and borders don't work

I wanted to use this fabric for kitchen towels. I love the color and design of the main motif. After washing: borders are 5" on 1 side, 1 1/2 on the other; beautiful design is only 12" wide, too narrow for towels. Between the borders and the main motif, there are two colored strips. I thought these would be a funky-casual look, but in person, they look garish to me. Lastly, I use a lot of linen and love the feel of linen - including F-S "Rustic" linen; but this fabric feels like it has plastic fibers and it's excessively rough and scratchy and crunchy in a weird, non-linen way. Maybe it was made for upholstery? I love Fabrics-Store products but this fabric didn't work for me.

So cute!

I made 2 dish towels and 2 potholders out of 2 yds of this fabric. I used the narrow side band off the potholder pieces to make loops for both the potholders and the towels. It made a nice "Thank You" gift for a friend.

Summer skirts and bags!

This fabric makes the cutest wrap around skirts and tote bags for summer. Mix and match the orange/green/yellow lemons and borers for fun colorful patterns. May make some tunics too. Love it!

Lemons flaming orange

Like the linen, great color, the only thing I would have liked was the borders be same width, as one side is wider that the other, it just looks different.
