You may have had the pleasure of working with our trickster weave fabrics - the ones that arrive flat and ordinary, but upon first contact with the washer and drier, they shapeshift into something deliciously textured and absolutely unique.

Please meet our newest addition - this cloth is 7.7 ounces a square yard which qualifies it at the top of the scale of heavyweight fabrics.

Woven with 73% linen to keep us cool and humidity-free and 27% cotton to be fluffier and voluminous.

The fabric arrives flat with subtle patterns that can be seen in the interweaving of the threads. This weaving technique comes with a delightful surprise once it goes through its first wash and dry. It fluffs up everywhere the threads are not interwoven.

To give it the volume the cloth needs to be a textured - the cloth is built to shrink. The 3 styles will pucker differently based on their weave. They will shrink about 8% on the width ( weft going selvage to selvage) of the cloth and about 24% on the length ( warp of the cloth).

You just pull the fabric out of the drier and feel like a magician.

Not just for bedding
Reviewer: Carol

Bought a doggie bag piece of this ultra-wide fabric and made up a pullover top for layering. Trimmed with gouache and pleased with the final product. Next time I'll try a button up jacket with large buttons. Great Fabrics as always.

Love this fabric! Very soft! Made a summer bedspread for hot Florida summers. Very breathable fabric did not get hot sleeping under bedspread.

I followed instructions for a Queen size spread but this fabric was wayyyyy too big for my king size bed. I will have to cut it down to use it. It did not shrink as much as I would have liked. However, I did make towels and washcloths with the extra fabric I ordered and still have some left over for a summer jacket. The towel set was for my husbands birhday and they were a hit. Maybe he will let me use them too.

Very happy with this fabric!

I ordered four yards for a queen size blanket - hemmed the edges with a double fold and mitered the corners. I was hesitant of the stiffness when first pulling it out, but it washed up beautifully and made a nice summer alternative to my quilt.

This is a photo of the bedspreads and throw using the fabric purchased from your store! I sent it all to my sister – as she has the talent and experience to work with this material. She has an ETSY shop on-line for other things that she creates and sells. I am looking forward to enjoying the bedspreads and the throw. Thank you for your fantastic products!! Eric Wood

I used 4 yards to make a king sized blanket The instructions in the email introducing this new fabric stated that 4 yards would make a queen sized blanket. However the fabric didn't shrink as much as expected and was almost too big for a king bed. I washed in eco warm temperature on permanent press cycle and dried on permanent press cycle, as well. I love the result! It's a great blanket for summer and a nice topper for winter.
