4C22 Rustic Bleached Softened - 100% Linen - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2)
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 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.
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
Randee, I would also like to know what pattern you used for your summer dress. It's great! Eileen
4C22 Bleached softened and 4C22 Bleached, are they the same fabric?
Yes they are the same linen. The main difference is going to be in the hand ( feel of the linen) non softened will have a stiffer, crisp hand whereas the softened will have a smooth hand.
Randee, what pattern did you use for your awesome dress? Thanking you in advance! Gail
4C22 bleached is wonderful for botanical contact printing! Mostly, I make aprons, pillow covers. This fabric is the perfect weight for home decor and takes leaf prints perfectly, with or without natural dyes. I have learned to buy some whenever it goes on sale.
Probably better for house linens but I found it great for a petticoat if you have hoops to hold the weight.
We decided to make our version of the Persephone Pants in a straight size 6 with no alterations using our gorgeous 4C22 BLEACHED Softened Heavyweight Linen in a beautiful off-white shade. At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces, this 100% linen is durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.
I have one for our bed (king) and one for my grandson (twin). Love them, and the fabric is a delight to work with!
I ordered a good deal of linen for tablecloths for a wedding reception. It arrived so quickly that it was accidentally stored with the gifts that were arriving daily. When I called to question the whereabouts of the linen, they quickly sent me a new batch. Much to my chagrin, the original linen was discovered and the back up was happily returned. The linen was gorgeous.The tables looked like only linen could make them look. I was thrilled with the whole aesthetic, and even more thrilled after laundering the linen. It came out fairly unwrinkled and so soft I can't wait to re purpose the linen.
