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).

A wonderful fabric for embroidery of home decor items
Reviewer: Marsha

I use it Fabric Store linen extensively for my embroidery projects sold on my Etsy shop (AdaliaSeasonalDecor.Etsy.com). While I often use IL019 signature finish, I reach for the 4C22 when I'm embroidering a design with more intensive stitching and it makes beautiful decorative pillows and table runners.

I love it!
Reviewer: Rosen

I got a scrap of this fabric to try for cross stitch. The weft and wrap are not even, so my crosses are rectangular rather than square, but it goes well with the pattern and so much more affordable than cross stitch linen. I tried dying it before stitching and it dyes beautifully and looks great after it dryed. I highly recommend this fabric for cross stitch, and would love it if there was something just like it but with even ct weft and wrap (36 or 38 ct would be perfect).

Lisa profile image This makes amazing towels
Reviewer: Lisa

I made bath towels out of this fabric. My son is moving out and I'm giving him my old towels. I double-folded and hemmed the edges and mitered the corners. They turned out great. They are absorbent, dry quickly and look nice hanging. I bought some other colors to make shirts. I love this fabric.

Reviewer: Vasquez

Bought this linen to make bath sheets and bath mats and worked perfectly. I have had the towels over a year now and they still look brand new. I love how this material absorbs a lot water however dries quickly and does not get musky. This particular linen 42CC is not the softest of them all, but I enjoy the "scrub" feeling you get while drying out with it.

Duvet cover
Reviewer: Mary

I made the duvet cover that is pictured on the website. I ordered the heavy weight Optic White. Washing it first, and drying it in the dryer it comes out so soft and beautiful. It irons well if that is the look you are wanting. After constructing the cover, it lays beautifully on my bed. I absolutely love the outcome!!

Reviewer: Vasquez

This fabric is exactly as described, soft to touch and becomes softer with every wash. Out from 6 yards I was able to make 2 bath sheets, 2 bath towels 2 bath maths and 3 small bento bags. Everything is addorable and I can't wait to get more of this fabric. I got Optic White which was exactly as pictured.

Did Not Disappoint
Reviewer: Anna

I bought this to make a set of hemstitched, monogrammed napkins as a gift for a friend. The linen is a sumptuous weight, and has a very nice hand. The napkins turned out beautifully, in part because of the quality of the fabric. Now, I want to make a set for myself!

Joan profile image Perfect White Linen
Reviewer: Joan

This fabric is outstanding! I made a fabulous pair of harem-style pants and the drape was perfect. I pre-washed the linen, which I usually don't do, and the fabric looked great without even ironing it. Love the look! Every time I wear my pants, I get compliments. I am ordering a Doggie Bag piece to make an Optic White hat. I am hooked on this linen because of the quality and price; (not crazy about the cost of postage though). However, Fabric-Store does offer the best linen that I have come across. I have been recommending it to others who sew.

Beautiful white linen
Reviewer: Anonymous

I have used this for wedding table cloths, dishcloths and napkins. Beautiful, heavy weight, washes up to a nice rustic texture. Although its isn't completely stark white, it is definitely a pure white.

Beautiful linen
Reviewer: Stacy

This is not rustic, in my opinion. It's very soft and smooth for linen. Good drape, good weight. It's a bit slippery, so I needed to use a lot of pins when sewing it. I used it for drapes, and now with all that I ordered, I'm going to make slipcovers for the headboard of my bed and guest bed and a tablecloth. Looks like very expensive fabric!

Exceeded expectations
Reviewer: Mary

This is beautiful fabric! I was expecting it to have more slubs and be more rustic. This is GORGEOUS and has that lovely sheen that will make my projects look very expensive and high quality. I never expected something of this quality at such reasonable cost.

Lovely Product
Reviewer: Guillermo

After I had soem issues with a different fabric I rodered before, mostly to do with me not being an "expert". I was looking for a pure white linen and I mean very white, this oen was recommended but remommented to whiten it a little adn it WORKED! Made me most beautiful linen towels. Thank you Maureen for you help you definately made it up for the not so good experience I had the first time! First Class!

Great rustic linen
Reviewer: Carol

Love the feel of this linen. I plan on making dining room chair covers with this great buy. This linen is heavy enough that you cannot see through it and will stand up as a great cover. Haven't decided what kind of trim I will use but hope to post my finished project. I may also decide to paint on this great fabric.

I created this cute easter bunny table runner on 4C22 softened optic white. Such a wonderful fabric to embroider. See it and other embroidered linen table runners at AdaliaSeasonalDecor.Etsy.com.

Just finished this cute Easter bunny tea towel on IL019 optic white signature finish. Such an amazing fabric! See the tea towel at AdaliaSeasonalDecor.Etsy.com.

Custom drapes by DLB Drapery in Florida in 4C22 Optic White linen

Posted by Diana

I made the Fabric-Store's one yard top from white 4C22. I adjusted the neck line following the Fabric-Store's tutorial on how to alter a neck line. I also dyed the white linen using the Fabric-Store's tutorial on how to dye with avocado. I left the fabric in the dye over night to get a deeper color! I added a hand stitched Mole that was done on a black background, then framed in Frost Grey IL019. I will be using this pattern several times in the future using Both 4C22 and IL019.

I Love This Linen!! I have covered this chair and painted on this pillow and I just finished this drapery for my bedroom. I haven't hemmed them yet but I may not because the linen drapes so beautifully on the floor. Great quality fabric!! I know I will continue to use it for many future projects.
