Makes a great safari vest!
Reviewer: Margaret

I used a favorite vest I own, carefully laying it out on paper. I used a measuring tape a LOT to get the right fit. I own a Brother Serger and this made for excellent seam control; and then I reinforced with a straight stitch. I tweaked the look using a plain muslin for the trim and one side of the collar.

Wonderful linen
Reviewer: Linda

I do a lot of sewing and love to use linen. I use the rustic to line the handbags that I make, the color seems to work with most other colors and the fabric holds up so well as a lining. I also make kitchen and bath towels with it. I gave up terry cloth towels and the musty smell they get after being wet and will never go back! I have also made clothing with the rustic linen and I've been very happy with the results.

Gorgeous for my French style home furnishings
Reviewer: Barbara

I knew when I ordered that I would love this fabric, and I absolutely do!! Taking the advice of other reviews, I washed the fabric 3 times in HOT water, and dried it on the highest heat. I took measurements before and after each wash/dry to calculate the amount of shrinkage - I knew that would be of interest to most others reading the reviews. I first serged the cut edges before washing to avoid any fraying. The fabric shrunk the most during the first wash/dry losing 3" in width from 60" down to the expected 57". The length shrunk from 57" to 54". The width remained at 57" for all other wash/dry. But, the length continued to shrink. In the 2nd wash/dry, the 54" shrunk further to 52" and after the 3rd, it shrunk to 51. Overall, that would imply approximately 10% shrinkage. For my use, I will not need to worry about further shrinkage, but I expect for clothing or any item requiring ongoing laundering, you should expect further shrinkage.

Lovely Linen!
Reviewer: Anonymous

Amazing color and quality! I washed and dried it a few times and it is already quite soft. I think the mixed 4c22 is my new favorite linen!

beautiful!
Reviewer: Claudia

I love this linen, the color is beautiful- not a grey but not khaki, right in between somewhere and very vertatile. Using if for a slipcover for sofa and chair. Would definitely recommend.

Rough and full of burrs
Reviewer: Christine

I purchased eight yards of this linen to make crib skirts for my twins' cribs. It's a good thing I didn't intend this for a garment! The weave is full of little twig-like burrs, like bits of hard, dry grass that somehow got woven in. This is consistent across the eight yards. After three washings, the fabric is still very rough, like the texture of a canvas painter's tarp. I really like IL019, but I will hesitate before buying 4C22 again.

Soft and beautiful
Reviewer: Anonymous

I purchased this fabric because of the thread colour blend, and because of previous reviews. It did not disappoint. Love it.

Natural look linen
Reviewer: Paul

If you are looking for the most natural look on linen colors , this is it, Is a mix of flax and oatmeal, and the weight is prefect.

Perfect!
Reviewer: Sharon

I have used a great deal of this linen, as well as the slightly heavier IL 090 almost exclusively for slipcovers for my home and for my job. I prewash and dry it and it comes out of the dryer gorgeous ...soft and nearly wrinkle free, but with lots of texture which gives it an earthy look. The mix/natural is quite a bit lighter in color than the plain natural, which I have also used...I like it better. There is a huge amount of lint from the first washing and dryng, but it nearly dsappears in subsequent washings. I would add that there is about a 5% shrinkage rate, so don't omit this step. It seems to wear like iron, and keeps its shape on the furniture forever. Love it....I would also add that I made a sleeveless sundress with leftovers and it's too heavy for that....it's now a winter jumper!

Washes Beautifully
Reviewer: Anonymous

I washed this linen in warm water, and put it in the dryer until damp. Hung it on my drying rack and it turned out beautiful. Very little ironing needed, soft hand - can't wait to sew it up!!

A full view of the gardening pants. The heavier weight material provides perfect knee protection when kneeling down in the garden. The pockets are in the bleached mid weight, and the waist band is the bleached heavy weight.

This is pocket off some gardening pants I made with this heavy weight linen. You can see the beautiful variation in color. This weight is perfect for pants or garments you want to be more durable. After a couple washes they are soft and cozy. The waist band is the bleached heavy weight linen.

It's Homecoming weekend. I made this jacket from heavy weight natural linen and ultramarine heavy linen. It is lined with natural linen and oooooooo so comfortable. Try washing heavy linen several times and make a comfy oversized tee sweatshirt......you'll never wear just cotton again! ( hope my photo goes right side up.... Mine always posts sideways from my iPad..... sorry)

We upcycle unwanted furniture and this sofa was covered in a ungodly green fabric and the wood trim was a dark stain. With this beautiful grey and linen and white washed wood, this piece sold within a weeks. reclaimhumanity.net Upcycle Gallery
