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 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). Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

Design created exclusively for F|S - you just pull the fabric out of the drier and feel like a magician.

This wide cloth is perfect for:

  • Robes
  • Curtains
  • Decorative Pillows
  • Jackets
  • Throws
  • Towels
  • Picnic and beach blankets
  • and, of course, Bedspreads

Second time around
Reviewer: Sallie

After buying this material and making my son a bedspread for his last birthday, I did a repeat to make one for myself. The color is just as pictured, shrinkage as predicted, but the amount of my delight vastly underestimated. I'm just sorry this wasn't purchased sooner. The Fabric Store continues to be my "go-to" place for linen. Love the products and the staff is wonderful!

I bought this summer blanket
Reviewer: Betty

I bought the 4 yards and the size is perfect. I loved the way it folded so easy and sewed the hems. I washed and dried once and it came out great. Snuggles well. I'd buy it again. I love their fabrics.

Absolutely gorgeous bedspread
Reviewer: Joanne

I bought 4 yards and hemmed all 4 edges per the instructions. After a quick wash and dry the most beautiful seersucker fabric emerged! It makes the perfect summer blanket. Gorgeous blue color!

light and airy yet soft and strong
Reviewer: Kristina

this is my first light weight linen purchase and I love it! It is so lightweight and airy yet feels very strong and holds the seems well. If you love the medium and heavy weight linens you will love the light! all a little different but excellent quality! This is a classic light blue color - exactly what I expected.

Charming bedspread
Reviewer: Katherine

The same day that the fabric arrived at our house I got busy pinning and sewing up all four sides of it to complete the bedspread. The package arrived late in the day so I didn't get it finished till the next day. I then threw the spread in the washer and dryer and it came out beautiful! I love the way it looks on the bed and the fit, feel and drape look so nice. We live in a colder region so it a nice weight for the summer nights.

Giant seersucker
Reviewer: Sandra

I bought a doggie bag sample of this because I was intrigued. The color is gorgeous, a light but bright blue. After washing it becomes like a giant seersucker, with the wide part very puckery and the narrow parts flat. I think it would make a lovely bathrobe or bedspread.

Love this bedspread

Queen size bedspread after being washed - 4 yards total

Photo of fabric after washing. Color is not accurate. It is much bluer in real life, but this gives an idea of the puckering.
