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 fabric arrives 84 inches wide, flat and with a subtle basket-like weave. This weaving technique comes with a delightful surprise once it goes through its first wash and dry.

The threads that are woven to make the outside of the squares - they “lift up”.
The threads that are used to weave the inside of the squares - those “drop-down”.

You get a cloth that looks like squares of a freshly made waffle deliciousness. It is just that yummy!

This cloth is wider than our usual selection at 84" wide.  Once it is washed - the cloth will shrink to get that dimensional waffle surface.
Approximate shrinkage - the width of cloth shrinks 17% (weft of the fabric) and 28% on the length ( warp of the fabric). Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

Waffle weave cloth is great for:
- Bath towels
- Robes
- Throws
- Duvet covers
- Pillow shams
- Lounge garments
- Decorative pillows
- Curtains
- Beach towels
- Picnic blankets
- items that need to have dimension and softness

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).

Is this a gray color or more of a taupe? Not sure if it's my screen!

I want to make a bedspread with this fabric as the top and then a smooth fabric for the skirt. Is there a gray color in IL019 that goes well with this?

The pearl grey IL019 is a nice grey which goes well with this fabric: fabrics-store.com/fabrics/linen-fabric-il019-pearl-grey-fs-signature-finish-medium

I would like to make a lined robe out of this fabric that doesn't need ironing to be wearable. I have washed it once and ironed it once, which flattened the waffles quite a lot. Is that the right state for cutting the pattern pieces? What tips are there for working with this fabric to make clothes?

When does the fabric become soft. It feels very scratchy.

Matt • September 17, 2022

With continued washing and use the fabric will soften. Using a warmer water and dryer balls also helps the softening process.

How many yards do I need for a king size sheet

Tracie • August 29, 2022

Hello, This fabric may not be suitable for a sheet. When washed, it will "fluff up" into its 3D waffle form, rather than a smooth fabric like a traditional sheet. This fabric is great for bedspreads and covers, and 8 yards is required for that style project.

Lovely Bath Sheets!

i used this and the Fabrics Store pattern for bath sheets. i used slightly different dimensions and calculated the expected shrinkage to better match a bath sheet that we already had, and they came out perfectly! also made two hand towels to match. love the waffle texture and they dry so quickly. i imagine these will only get better over time with more washes.

Patricia profile image Stiffer than Rose Color

I bought four colors of this fantastic fabric: this Frost Gray, Rose Smoke, Orchid Tint and Mist. The Frost Gray is noticeably scratchier than the other three colors. I washed all of the towels at least 4 times, and that is still the case. I decided to convert the Frost Gray into exfoliating wash cloths. I intend to make exfoliating gloves. They will be awesome!

I tried this fabric at your last sale. I bought 3 yds. of Frost Gray for a thermal blanket for my bed in the summer time. I was concerned that the fabric would not fluff since I do not own a dryer. No problem. I performed beautifully. I finished the top and bottom seams and threw it in the washer. It fluffed up and I dried it outside. Also, since my sewing machine was in the shop when your fabric came, I put it on my bed flat. Later I washed it and returned it to my bed. The new fluffed blanket does work well as a thermal blanket. It feels much warmer now. I am now preparing the 3 yds. of Sky that I bought for the guest room.

MM profile image So happy to see this back in stock!

I made many kitchen towels and dish cloths (dish rags here in the South) from this fabric and color (also Pebble, Cobalt, Cerulean and Bleached Natural). I made baby blankets from the Dusty Rose and Sky blue. I was about to make more from the Silver Grey, but when it went out of stock, along with the IS010 Nine Iron, I hoarded what I had left. Selfish, me! Now that both are back, I will make more kitchen items, and a bath sheet, and a shrug/bed jacket for myself (again, selfish, me, lol!). Any scraps will be made into bath mitts and head bands. The wee scraps will be made into ragged rose pins. Nothing is wasted! I am in love with IS010, and so are my customers. It is delicious, as my husband will attest to!

I am so in love in this fabric. I have it in several colors. I made this afghan from the Frost Gray. I love the feel and the look. The textures look so good with our furniture.
