IS010 Waffle Gray Cashmere Softened - 54% Linen / 46% Cotton Fabric - Medium (6.2 oz/yd2), Width 84"
Contemporary Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugito draws us deep into his world of meditative calm, where softly diffused gray light like that of GRAY CASHMERE Linen expands across vast areas of empty space.
Sugito made his name in the 1990s as a leader in the Tokyo-pop movement alongside Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara, but his brand of the style was quieter and more contemplative, combining tranquil expanses of empty space with tiny, barely seen trees, furniture, or mystical kawaii creatures.
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
What are good measurements for a throw. 84" wide by72" flip it 180 deg? Does that make sense?I made one last year but cannot remember the math? K
Hello, to make a throw in this fabric, generally 2-3 yards will suffice and you just need to hem the edges.
I can see how to figure the shrinkage for straightedged items like towels, but how do you cut for a garment pattern like a robe? With the different directional shrinkage don't the armhole seams pull or pucker after it's washed?
For garments in this fabric we recommend pre-washing and then cutting. We cover this in greater detail in our Help Center article: support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us/articles/4422004743821-To-Pre-wash-or-Not-to-Pre-wash-Shrinkage-in-IS010-Waffle-Weave
Could you email the instructions for the baby blanket made with the waffle linen? Thank you.
I have sent you an email :)
I see other people have asked the same question concerning the instructions for the towel dimensions when using the waffle weave fabric. Would you mind sending them to me as well? Thanks!
I will email you directly with the instructions for the waffle towels.
I am looking for a gray with a warm tone.Is this more cool tone than warm?
This linen is a cooler tone than a warm tone.
Would this fabric be suitable to make a jacket? I assume then it would need to be prewashed?
Hello, Some of our customers have used this fabric for jackets among many other projects like towels and throws. Yes, you will need to thoroughly pre-wash this fabric before cutting and sewing.
Just received my 4 yards of this fabric & I can,'t wait to try it. Please email directions on how to make the towels. Thank you.

someone mentioned that the material (grey cashmere) should not be washed before sewing it. Doesn't mention that in the description. So when is the best time to wash? Before or After?
When using the IS010 there are certain items, such as towels, where you want to sew before you lander. I will email our towel tutorial to you for review.
I made a single set of towels in a different color of this fabric. And won the rest of the family over to this fabric. I have been making oversized bath , hand towel and matching wash cloths for each family member for Christmas (6 couples). Each set took 6 yards. I made the 3 big burrito bath sheets the full width of the fabric by 52" long. Next came 3 hand towels 28" wide by 30" long. Then 4 wash cloths 21" wide by 24" long. This is the pre-washed measurements. I hemmed each towel with a 1 1/4" hem fold under. I'll let each couple wash it themselves for the first time so they can really see the amount it shrinks and enjoy how much they can wrap it around themselves. This grey cashmere will become my next project : a robe that can double as a Viking Style coat for a re-enacter. It will make a good extra layer of warmth for sitting around the campfire after the days events are done when it gets cooler.
I really like using this fabric and have made a couple of projects using it now, the first was a throw blanket and the second was a baby receiving set that turned out fantastic. I really like working with fabric and how easy care items I make from it are. I purchased this in a different color to follow the towel set tutorial and they turned out fantastic. It is a little different getting used to not washing the fabric before doing my sewing project with this fabric but after using it for a few projects I completely understand why washing should happen after sewing and why it's important to read the description of the fabric and the shrinkage percentage of the warp and weft when working with this material, but one I got the hang of keeping that in mind using this material is no problem.
I was not sure if I would like a linen/cotton towels being accustomed to terry cloth, but wanted to give them a try as my terry cloth ones were not holding up well and quickly looked dingy from hard water despite having a water softener. I'm so glad I did. Each time I wash these towels they become more textured, get softer and the color has stayed true. The towels are larger than the ones I normally buy, but guests have mentioned they loved wrapping up in a larger towel. Next time I would make the hand towels a bit larger in order to serve as a head wrap since they are so absorbant. I have made two sets. the first set took a long time because I pulled out my ruler and iron and started to fold the edges perfectly. Luckily before I tackled the second set, I happened to read someone else reveiw that mentioned they finger press seams when sewing with linen. Simply finger pressing and using the woven grid as a guide made all the difference in terms of time and the finished towels look no different. These would definitely make a wonderful gift!
I have made towels out of this material. I really love how soft they feel. I left the edges unsewn and I love the feathery edges. Love all the linen I have bought from Fabric-Store over the years and the patterns.
This was made into a throw. I turned in the edges 1/2 inch then 1 inch and the edges were perfect. Very soft and cuddly. Would love to make a big bouncy sweater with this fabric.
