1C64 Luxury Optic White Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
A finer quality 5.3 ounce medium weight 58 inch wide 100% linen that is woven with finer threads, and an increased thread count. The higher thread count makes 1C64 shrink less and gives this linen a very smooth and luxurious look and feel, earning it the moniker "luxury linen".
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
Is this your best linen for embroidery, especially cross-stitch?
This fabric is designed for embroidery, specifically drawn threadwork. This can work for cross stitch, but please pay attention to the thread count as this fabric is much finer than traditional cross stitch fabric.
I am interested in the 1C64 optic white linen for altar cloths - I see a few other customers recommend it as well :) How do the cuts come when you order? I would need two lengths of 8 yards. Would they come as separate cuts (2yds, 6yds, 1yd, etc.) to equal the total, or will I receive one continuous piece?
Hello, your fabric will always come as one continuous piece of the yardage you have ordered.
I just signed up and like to order Optic White Linen. We were going to order IL019 -All purpose, after searching further we did find 1C64 Luxury Optic White linen and after reading the reviews, the latter may be the better choice for making church vestments and altar linens. What is the difference between these two linens? Thank you for your advice in this.
The 1C64 linen has a smoother hand and an even weave structure, giving it a more luxurious and refined look. In comparison, the IL019 has the traditional linen texture and weave from single ply threads of subtly varied widths.
Could I use this color and weight for loose summer pull-on pants? I have used this weight in other colors and the fabric has been excellent. I would like to have a white pair, but I am concerned about it being too see-through.
Hello, all white linen fabrics can be a little see through to varying degrees due to the colors and nature of the fabric. The levels of opacity in this fabric and our 4C22 are the ones which our customers usually find to be the most opaque and suitable for pants. Of course, this will vary depending on personal taste, so it is always a good idea to get a sample.
Hi, Can you tell me the shrinkage for 1C64 OPTIC WHITE Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)? Thanks Jane
7-10% based on our recommended wash instructions that you will find in our help center which you can access from the footer of our main webpage located under Services.
I am so glad this Optic White is back. I just received an order for 6 Altar Cloths and this is the perfect fabric.
Bought this for hand piecing Angel Dresses, lovely feel to it - easy to handle..think i would like it a little softer-a false petticoat underneath solved the problem- embellished with with fine lace. Currently making a Bonnet to go with it... these little dresses are donated - thought it best to be anonymous, sorry so no photo graph
I washed this material twice in hot water and put it in the dryer. I wanted to make sure I attained all the shrinkage possible before preparing the linens for church. My only comment is that I wish it was a little \\\"whiter\\\" than it is. It has a beautiful finish, drapes very nicely and is so easy to iron. One more thing I would like to add: I have never had such wonderful and caring service from any company I've ordered material from as I have from Fabric-Store.com. They truly go above and beyond when you need help or have questions. The reason for the \"4\" is due to the color I had hoped would be whiter.
Lovely linen to use for Communion cloths. It irons out smoothly, takes machine embroidery beautifully, and I'll be ordering more for another set of cloths. Thank you for your advice on using this linen for this purpose.
I just finished 8 Purificators for our Christ Church, Episcopal altar linens. This linen is delightful to work with and presses up smooth as silk. I hand hemmed all of them and machine embroidered the crosses in the center and I'm going to make more this winter as the Altar Guild loves them. We go through Purificators faster than any other small linen as the metal chalice is rough on the fabric, as is the effort to wash out the ladies' lipstick stains. These have a sturdy feeling to them without being rough or "rustic".
A very nice alternative to Belgian linen for making altar linens, especially if the parish budget is somewhat limited. Sews up beautifully and while I offer this as 'second best' (see budget comment)it is a very, very good second best indeed! Shown is a handmade altar linen set with a couple of lavender sachets on the side. Ilona
