Excessive amount of lint.
Reviewer: Anonymous

Used the black rustic linen for a bath towel. After 5 washes, an excessive amount of lint continues to rub off, onto the body. Hopefully, after a few more washes, it will dissipate, otherwise, I may have to repurpose the towel and make a linen tank top.

Love!
Reviewer: sarah

Bought and used some of this for making myself baby carriers several years ago. It was great for that but now my kids are older and I still have lots leftover. Started making linen shorts for the summer and am in love with them.

Classic in every sense
Reviewer: julie

I will use this black rustic 22 linen to sew a messenger style over the shoulder all purpose bag. I plan to use it to carry a variety of projects to work on when I travel or attend meetings. My knitting, crochet work, bento bag sewing, small quilt projects, etc. will fit easily with my tablet and phone so I am always in touch. This linen is easily laundered and coordinates with everything 😊. It's great

4C22 Black Linen
Reviewer: Karen

I wanted a heaver linen for pants and I found this to be the perfect weight, even in summer and you cannot beat the price of this fabric. I would describe it as medium/heavy weight but yet still drapes nicely for garments. The pants I made are a recent release of V9193 designed by Marcy Tilton. Modern & chic.

Black Hvy Wght Linen
Reviewer: Joseph

I love this linen. I typically use it for re-enactment garb specifically for SCA Armored Combat. I use the black in conjunction with gold and red with all of them keeping their color through dust and grime, sweat and tears, and through the wash and linen drying. It also is durable in combat yet allows heat to escape the body. Linen just feels 'right' whether for Armored Combat or the Medium Weights for garb.

I love the size and weight of this linen. I will be using this to sew a pair of all weather comfortable pants and I plan to use any scraps from the cutting out for smaller objects like a coin purse and a crochet hook holder. I have used this fabric in the past for an over the shoulder messenger bag, a purse and a nook cover. It sews up beautifully and wears well.

I Love this Linen
Reviewer: Erika

I have been buying linen from fabrics-store.com for a while now. As important as it is that I love it, its even more important that my customers love it, and they do! Its soft and durable, and has a great drape. The color options are fantastic! I have yet to find a place with a better selection of linen or lower prices. I'm so glad I found this place. I get the 7.1 oz heavy linen for my product, and its just the perfect weight - not too light and not too heavy. The first time you wash this fabric it will shed a lot, so check your lint trap! I only with they had the same daily discounts to include the 7.1 oz, and not just the 5.3 oz. Thanks guys! Love what your product! -Erika portlandaproncompany.com (My front page photo shows fabrics-store linen)

Yummy
Reviewer: Heidi

I'm a fabric addict and this is one of my favorites, all colors. I make purses, makeup bags, totes and the like. Although it washes to a soft dream, these things aren't going to be worn next to the skin so I don't wash it beforehand. It has a subtle, beautiful weave and I love the crisp polish of it right out of the box. I also like that you can pull out a strand to reveal a perfect guide for cutting. Your scissors stay right there in that channel. I can use a heavy cotton interfacing for a pliable bag, or a stiff polyester stabilizer when I want something more structured. You just can't go wrong.

Wonderful Summer Clothing
Reviewer: Sally

I ordered 2 doggie bag pieces of this fabric in January 2012 to make a Sunday nice dress. I prewashed in hot water which took care of the shrinkage problems and made the fabric wonderfully soft and a dream to sew. The doggie bag pieces were so generous that I made a simple A line dress and a pair of slacks from the 2 pieces! This fabric must be the original wash and wear fabric of civilization as it is wearable straight from the dryer. The clothing breathes and is as cool as it gets in our hot, humid south Texas summers. The dress is very comfortable under a polyester clerical robe and does not wrinkle unduly. After the robe comes off, I still look decent to go out to a nice restaurant for lunch.

Wonderful and durable!
Reviewer: Kathryn

I'm currently using this fabric for the lining of a doublet used for SCA Rapier combat. I've heat-treated it by boiling it in a big pot to tighten down the weave, which was relatively successful! It will be soft and breathable, but is durable enough to withstand a beating. SO much more comfortable, and much closer to the period practice of multiple layers of linen to provide protection!

Ordered this fabric to make chef's aprons for Christmas. Pleased with the results. Prepared the fabric by washing in hot water five times but it still bled color. In future, plan to wash and soak in cool water bath with 1 cup white vinegar, then repeat wash.

This linen is just perfect for pants. My daughter liked it so much that I had to buy more fabric to sew another pair of pants 👖 for her.

This linen is fantastic for making cross back aprons. (I use the pattern posted on The Thread with a few alterations) My Baby Lock II Sashiko machine is used for sewing the edges down. Makes a great gift for the cook, gardener, etc.

LOVE, Love, love this linen. Made my pirate outfit out of heavy crimson for the outer coat and all purpose medium natural linen for the lining. The waistcoat under the coat is also heavy black soften linen with the medium soft natural lining.. It looks marvelous. The linen gives the outfit a natural, comfort fit. The look is very authentic . I selected linen vs wool for summer, fall heat.

I use this heavyweight linen for Edo-period, deeply pleated hakama. The thickness and hand are perfect, it makes for comfortable yet rugged hakama that can take abuse and still hold crisp pleats. Highly recommended not just for costumes but martial arts wear.

This 18th century black waistcoat was made from this linen, along with my breeches. The fabric is light, yet durable. It was a great choice form my Regimental Surgeon impression.

I made the pants and silk-lined cloak with the 7.1-ounce linen in black. The shirt is a lighter weight linen. (I made all the armor, too, but I claim no responsibility for the plush dragon on his shoulder.) The photo was taken at a Renaissance festival in Texas.
