IS010 Waffle Nine Iron Softened - 54% Linen / 46% Cotton Fabric - Medium (6.2 oz/yd2), Width 84"
NINE IRON linen's steely, dramatic grey with just a hint of crimson became great swathes of deep shadow in the hands of the painter Thomas Cole, sweeping across America's epic mountain ranges and forming wild, turbulent skies laden with thunderstorms.
His momentous landscapes are a celebration of
America's sublime wilderness during the mid-19th century, before
industrialization took over, invoking the unstoppable force of this
overwhelmingly vast terrain.
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
Hi, would this be sturdy enough for a jacket?
Hello, Yes this fabric has been used for cozy jackets. Please keep in mind, once washed and waffled up, this fabric has a little stretch due to the waffle weave texture.
hello, how much yardage is need for a stand bath towel ? Thanks !
Hello, We have cutting layouts for bath towels (which comes with hand towels and wash cloths) but you can use the listed dimensions for the towels to ascertain how much yardage you need for how ever many towels you would like to make. Here is the link: support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us/articles/17568000961037-How-to-Sew-a-Towel-Set-from-our-IS010-Waffle-Weave-Fabric-Sewing-Tutorial
How much yardage do you recommend for a men's bath robe, size medium-large. Thank you!
Yardage depends on the pattern and style you will use, so we cannot give accurate yardage. We recommend anywhere between 4 and 6 yards.
I want to end up with a waffle blanket for a king size bed. Approximate size is 96 by 112 inches. How many yards will I need?
Hello, for Queen and King beds, we recommend a total of 8 yards. This can get cut into 2x 4 yard pieces, and seamed together If you prefer no middle seam, use one of your 4 yard pieces as the middle panel and cut the other remaining 4 yard piece into two size panels. The width of the cover can then be cut down to your desired width.
I'm interested in using this to make a light weight throw. Can the edges be frayed into a fringe?
Our in house sewing and pattern consultant has put together an article on how to sew with the waffle and tips for fringing are listed there. You will find this in our help center located here: support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us/articles/4422004938381-Sewing-with-your-IS010-Waffle-Weave-Fabric
What size should I make, before shrinkage for a standard size finished towel. I don't understand how to figure the shrinkage. I see that it is preferred to hem before washing.
Hello! We have a tutorial with cutting layouts for this on our blog. Here is the link: blog.fabrics-store.com/2021/07/21/tutorial-how-to-make-waffle-bath-towels/
Can I cut it into different colors large squares for a patchwork effect? Or will the shrinkage be too uneven, making the blanket wonky?
Make sure the warp and weft are the same on each color square you cut. In fact, since the shrinkage differs depending on the warp or weft, you might want to do the math to figure out the finished size after shrinkage and adjust the size of your pieces accordingly. Make sure you keep them oriented in the same direction all the way through the construction process. Don't forget the seams will also bulk up after washing and any unfinished seams will ravel. This might work if you are going for the "fringed" patchwork that was popular a few years ago. It will be a rustic look.
I made these for my daughter as a birthday gift and was impressed with how easy they were to make as well as how soft they were out of the dryer. They only took an afternoon to put together! The only change I made was to miter the corners. This fabric would make a lovely light summer throw, especially in a beach house!
As a bath towel, this fabric has a lot going for it. 1). Easy to work with. I measured out for each towel, allowing for shrinkage. Cut and sewed a narrow ham all around and then washed. I found it easier to postpone the shrinking until after the hemming was done. 2). The 3 dimensional effect makes this fabric nicely absorbent and it softens up after repeated laundering. 3). It's not overly space-hogging in the cupboard and even my oversized bath sheet fits nicely when put away. 4) I used a 3 yard length of fabric, hemmed the two raw edges and made a twin sized blanket that has been in use now for months. It gets laundered weekly and is very soft. I also made a linen flat sheet with 1C64 and together it's all that's needed for a cozy bed. Back to towel fabric. I ordered the fabric in 5 different colors, 6 yards each, to make bath towel sets for Christmas presents for family members who have seen and used my towels and loved the feel. I can size up or down based on each persons preference. Some like a standard size. Others want to wrap up like a burrito in their towels, so theirs will be super-sized.
The color is outstanding, classy and deep. I washed first before sewing. It would have been better to sew first, and assume 30% shrinkage with the measurement. We love the look and touch. I made a queen size bedspread, a large and medium size bath towel with the 4 yards I got. It feels so good to sleep bedspread. The Bath towels are a good alternative in the summer.
The novelty of this fabric alone piqued my interest. I had to try it. Upon receiving the fabric, I washed it twice in hot water. It was not soft. Several other reviewers mentioned that the fabric was just too scratchy for them to use as a bath towel and I had to agree with them. The third time I washed with Milsoft, from Dharma Trading. This softened the fibers beautifully. Now this will be my favorite towel for the summer. dharmatrading.com/chemicals/milsoft.html
What a fun fabric! I only purchased one yard in Nine Iron to try it first - love the magic that happens from washing. Great thick thirsty texture. This will make some great kitchen towels.
I made lovely, delicious towels that are a dream to dry with out of IS010. The dry my body quickly and the towels dry in a matter of an or or two unlike terry which may take a day to hang dry on a rod. I made a pile of face cloths and fingertip towels so I have plenty. This fabric is the best choice for towels and light blankets.
I bought the Nine Iron waffle weave linen for towels and love it! The instructions were easy to follow. The only thing I changed was to miter the corners. They were quick and easy to make and I love the texture. I did 2 hand towels in about 2 hours total. I have a full time day job, plus I have a stained glass studio business (facebook.com/sodalimeglassworks) SodaLime Glassworks that I do from home part time, so being able to make these in such a short time from was great!!
