Bleached color is achieved by "stripping" the natural pigment out of the fibers( just like you would with bleaching hair). What you are left with is a very soft shade that is just ever so slightly an off-white color. 
Bleached is the basics of any project and loves being dyed. It is actually what we use to dye the colors. A truly versatile base and a must-have addition to your fabric repertoire.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 57 inch wide 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

Our recommendation for reupholster projects are the the heavier linens. These range in weight from 7 ounces to 10 ounces. Please look here fabrics-store.com/linen-fabric to see the weights of the products we offer.

I purchased this 4C22 Bleached linen over a year ago to make curtains for my bedroom. I am just now getting around to doing that. My question is do I need to wash and dry the fabric before making them? I was contemplating lining them so what fabric (cotton, blend,etc) should I use to do that. Thank you for your help, Ruth Sanders

If you are planning on laundering the curtains going forward, you would need to launder them to remove the shrinkage. Our launder instructions are posted in our help center. Customers have used cotton lawn, voile, lightweight linen or blackout for lining others prefer to not use any lining.

Very Happy

I am very happy with this linen. It has a quality feel to it, and I can't wait to work with it. I am choosing to make drapes, a Roman shade and a bed skirt.

I am using this linen to line my linen window treatments! At the heavier weight it adds a heft, and drape, that is truly luxurious! Thanks a million FS! I feel so blessed to have found your website, all those years, ago!

The review should have read...—better linen cannot be bought anywhere for this price.

I bought 6 yards to make sheets for my queen bed. I washed it and dried it and it is an absolute gorgeous fabric. Although I have not sewn the sheets yet, my current linen sheets are made of the exact same fabric except it is unbleached. My husband and I love the sheets. They are wonderful to sleep on. Better than no purchased anywhere for this price. And the Fabric Store has been wonderful to work with. They are absolutely committed to customer satisfaction.

When I'm headed to my studio, I'm usually dressed like this. An oversized blouse, that is balanced with a fitted waist. In this case, I chose a linen skirt. This look is appropriate for almost any professional setting or meeting. If I want to add some more fun to it I'll add accessories as I did here. Accessorizing is a good trick to bring balance and attention to detail. If I add bangles, your eyes are drawn to my sleeves, same as a necklace draws the eyes to the neckline. Your pieces can be intentional.

I used 7 oz bleached linen To make a wide Roman shade. I really Love the off white color and texture of this fabric.

Wool on FS BLEACHED Heavyweight Linen. I started off stitching as a way to create a weight of line which wasn't available and possible with a pen, brush or pencil. Over time though after much contemplation on the subject of stitch, gender and materials I have begun to understand it as a more rounded context of life, and the decisions we make with our individual life paths.

SARA Pants made with FS BLEACHED Heavyweight Avocado Dyed Linen. I started with a little more than two yards of FS BLEACHED Heavyweight linen, 10 avocados, and some soy milk. I am by no means experienced in natural dyeing fabrics, but I would encourage anyone to give it a try. You learn as you go and it seems that no matter how careful and experienced you are you get lovely variations and quirks that can only come from the mystique of nature. I'll be wearing my SARA's to work, the park with my kids, on weekend library trips, grocery shopping, brisk fall walks and dressed up with a heel silk tank and a pop lip.
