IS010 Waffle Rose Smoke Softened - 54% Linen / 46% Cotton Fabric - Medium (6.2 oz/yd2), Width 84"
ROSE SMOKE’s sweet, tart pink colored Robert Delaunay’s kaleidoscopic art, filling it with the bright freshness of summer.
Delaunay was a leading figure in the early 20th century School of Paris, and his art encapsulated the joyful anticipation of the era, a time when rising industrial change promised a life of danger, thrill and adventure. Alongside his wife Sonia, they spearheaded the spirited styles of Simultanism and Orphism, made from concentric circles and halos of prismatic, transcendent light. Delaunay observed with fascination, “Painting is by nature a luminous language.”
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
Would this make a light bed blanket, a little thicker than a sheet?
Yes, it would :) Many of our customers have used this fabric for this and love how light and airy it is for a blanket.
Curious size of baby blanket after wash amd dry?
This will depend on the size you cut your fabric. This fabric shrinks 17% on the width (weft) and 28% on the length ( warp Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry. Simply add this to your desired dimensions, plus hem allowance.
I sewed up these towels back in December and have been pleased with them. Do make sure to adjust your machine tension before doing so! I didn't, and wish I had! The towels themselves dry you off very well and "cleanly" if that's the word for it. There's no leftover film of water that other towels don't really absorb. True, they aren't exactly *fluffy* towels, but I am pleased. I also just have a linen obsession. There was a bit of a learning curve in regards to getting them to not shrink up terribly in the dryer, but getting it at about 80-90% dry and stretching the edges back to square does the trick. They were really linty for the first 4-5 washes, don't wash them with anything else before then! Fabrics Store recommends a cool wash for their linen, but I wash these in hot to actually get them clean and prevent that nasty "wet towel" smell and have had no problems so far! I'd love to attach a photo of the finished product/color, but there doesn't seem to be a way to?
This color is stunning. Muted and soft. I made a birthday gift of a bath sheet and a hair towel. I washed it three times before I gave the gift so most of the lint came out. Of course, I had to make a set for myself after I saw how nice it was!
1 bath towel (61" x 38" unwashed unhemmed, finished 54 x 34) 1 hand towel (23" x 32" unwashed unhemmed, finished 18 x 24) 1 small drawstring bag from the remaining rectangle. Haven't used the towels as they are a gift but they look pretty.
I bought this in a light blue for my daughter's birthday made 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels and several washcloths. She LOVED them!!! I have bought this rose smoke color for some towel sets and some white for a loose and comfty top! I love this fabric SO MUCH!!!
I have made several baby blankets from this fabric, as well as bath towels and bath mitts. All have been a big hit! I use the scraps to make tubular headbands (earmuffins, as I call them) with wide elastic inside, and I use the smaller scraps to fashion "ragged rose" pins to attach to the headbands. I have made several of these from different colors, and the pins can be made from one or more colors, mix and match!
Let's start with the fabric choice that made this super fun! The pattern suggests woven medium weight linen 55" width and all the photos in the instructions are made with traditional texture linen but you MUST consider the linen/cotton waffle fabric as an option when you make this robe! We picked the Orchid Tint Softened Linen/Cotton Blend. I have been sewing for over 20 years and the first thing I learned was to launder your fabric to avoid shrinking issues later! The FS waffle fabric comes to you flat and when you wash it, something magical happens because of the weave when it shrinks. The warp and the weft and the cotton and the linen, one shrinks a percentage one way and the other a different percentage making the delicious waffle texture. So I washed and dried this beautiful fabric immediately to watch the magic happen. Then I panicked. Ha! Don't worry, I still endorse this step. The robe turned out amazing so as a sewing instructor, I will continue to endorse pre washing /drying most fabrics....forever and always.
