Karen profile image Great natural fabric
Reviewer: Karen

When I received this fabric, I serged the cut edges and laundered it in hot water and dried it in the dryer, as suggested. It came out wonderfully soft. (If I had wanted it to remain crisp, I would have had it dry cleaned.) I haven't worked with it yet, but I plan to do some hand embroidery to be framed(?), and there is enough left over to make a garment. The softness of the fabric will allow it to drape beautifully.

Denise profile image Great texture
Reviewer: Denise

I've now used this for tablecloth, table runners, bread bags, face rags, a bedspread, but my favorite use so far is for camping bath towels...absorbant, dries fast with no towel smell and feels great.

Theresa profile image Wonderful Weight
Reviewer: Theresa

I've been using this fabric along with the lightweight bleached linen to make bread bags for holiday gifts. They are both divine to work with. The rustic washes up beautifully, softens and takes a pressing well. I am eyeing this weight for garments too. Great fall/winter pant weight, or a light lined jacket. I can find dozens of ways to use this lovely rustic linen. Great products and great customer service. I am a frequent buyer.

Karen  profile image Softened?
Reviewer: Karen

I'm not sure exactly what I expected from softened linen but I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't a little softer after I washed it. I haven't made anything with it yet- I'm thinking about a pair of pants. I'm hoping it softens a little more with repeated washing. Orher than that issue I think it is lovely fabric wirh a great color and weight. This was my first purchase from this outlet but I'll be making more!

Reviewer: Barbara

Natural, the plain ordinary color that doesn't draw your attention towards the fabric. Simple color that wows you just because its Linen. Versatile fabric that makes you feel great. The wow factor on all colors here is what makes me a repeat customer. Cannot go wrong with Natural, create anything with this color, it will pop just because its extraordinary fabric.

Susan profile image Awesome fabric....Awesome Customer Service
Reviewer: Susan

This is my absolute favorite linen from FS. It is perfect for both clothing and bedspreads, etc. I have an arsenal of this color and order more when it goes on sale. I have made an incredible duvet with luscious big wooden buttons..working on pillows with the same. I made a short jacket that ties in the front that i get multiple compliments...which lead me to make one in about 6 other FS linens. The fabrics are the best and the customer service is EXCEPTIONAL. I share their site with others all the time. I have had a few orders that would not go through, but when I called in the next day the MORE THAN HELPFUL CS ladies have always honored the sale and been so very helpful. They take our suggestions to heart. And I want to thank FS for offering the sales..especially the great 20% and sometimes 35% off. That helps senior citizens who love your linen! I am addicted....don't go away...THANKS!!!!!!!!

Kristin profile image nice linen, shrinks a LOT
Reviewer: Kristin

I used this linen to make a coverlet that would be tucked in on all sides, so exact size wasn't critical provided it had enough length to tuck in. Using other linens I've experienced minimal shrinkage, so I sewed up the coverlet before washing and left a lot of extra room for shrinkage (108" long when 90-92" was plenty). It shrunk lengthwise so much that it's not long enough to tuck under the mattress in the direction I intended! That means it lost around 18" over three yards of length. Widthwise it didn't shrink at all. The texture is lovely and it looks great but I think a warning that this linen shrinks a LOT more than, say, IL019, would have been appropriate.

Fabrcis-store buyer profile image Rustic Duvet
Reviewer: Anonymous

When I first opened the box, right away I admired the beautiful color or the natural flax, but when I pulled it out I was disappointed about the texture. I even called to return it. The customer service is wonderful here. Very kind and more than happy to work with you, but with a little encouragement from my family (everyone loved the color) I decided to wash it and keep it. It's extremely dirty (YIKES) I washed it 6X before the water started to be clear enough to see the fabric in the tub. It's worth it! It's more beautiful with every wash and even the texture is fluffier and has even more character than this sample picture could possibly display. It's easy to sow. Needless to say, I was in heaven during this duvet project for my king size bed. It kept me busy and it's a process, but no doubt a five star product.

Reviewer: Amy

I used 4C22 Rustic Bortovka to make the fitted slip cover for our couch with an invisible zipper in the back seam. It washes and dries like a dream and was a joy to sew. It has been wearing like iron since 2009, washed I don't know how many times and still looks great.

This linen is great to work with. I prewashed and ironed before cutting the pattern out. It made a lightweight soft to the touch uniform. I'm a seamstress for the Sons of the American Revolutionary War Uniforms! They are typically made of wool blends or poly gabardine, so I thought I had to try to make one out of linen for a different feel and hopefully will sell a few to the guys on the west coast and the Florida panhandle area. Thanks FS!

The main body of this slip cover is from the rustic 7.1 linen. (the quilt has the mid-weight linen in it also). I was very, very happy with this fabric. It wore like iron. I highly recommend it for slipcovers. I was surprised at how thin it seemed at first, but it was nice not working with a bulky fabric. And it didn't seem to affect the wearability of it...I made that back in 2012 I think.

Slipcover made from 4C22 NATURAL, softened. It sews nicely, washes nicely too. It is comfortable and durable. Has a gray tint to it certain times of the day with bright sunlight. Looks a little more tan in lamp light. Beautiful!

A $40.00 "Cuddle Chair" from the Salvation Army, 16 yards of 4C22 Natural Softened Linen, ten zippers, 6 buttons, and lots of fringe and you will end up with a thousand dollar chair! The linen met my great expectations. Can't wait to tackle my other living room furniture with new linen slip covers. It's beautiful and have had many compliments. It.s a pleasure to work with such an excellent store.
