Jacquard cloths are created by weaving different color threads to create intricate patterns - or paintings that are woven with thread. These are harder to weave and are considered an "heirloom" fabric due to the craftsmanship involved in their creation.

This fabric is super fun to work with - making every project look like a work of art.  The trick? Just throw it in the wash!

When you receive it  - the cloth will be 65 inches wide, flat, and 2-dimensional. After the wash and dry - the design will "lift up" giving the fabric a 3 dimensional appearance.

In order for the fabric to "lift up" it is woven in a way that when it is washed and dried - it will shrink more than plain weave linen giving it the volume needed to be 3 dimensional. This cloth you can expect 18% shrinkage weft (width of the fabric); and 16% warp (length of the fabric). Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

Just FYI, I tried repeatedly yesterday probably 10 times to order Royal crest 2 yards at the 25% off. It would never take my order. I get all the way to submit my order and then it would never open.

This fabric is the best towel. It soaks up water better than any other towel I have. Made a few towels for gifts. Which, I am still getting thank yous from my friends.

perfect for a bedspread or throw

I've bought this IL002 a couple of times. Love the way it sews and the way it turns out! Great weight for a throw or bedspread. I'm planning on buying it again! Thanks FS! Love your linen! Theresa

Perfect for a throw!

My first time buying this fabric and watching the 3-D magic that happens after washing! From stiff and flat to soft and three dimensional with a lovely fluid drape. The colors are beautiful! I got 1.5 yards as a doggie bag item and it is the perfect amount for a throw to keep on the sofa. Your fabrics never disappoint!

Very disappointed

This is NOT heavy in the least, Not lofty, Not thick, Planning on gifting towels. These aren't "towels", these are not soft, no matter how much you wash/dry them. Beware!

The couch throw was inspired by someone on this forum who used IL002 Royal Crest for a bed topper. I used a 1 yd Doggie Bag piece (one of my earliest FS purchases) & lined it & made bias binding w/IL020 Handkerchief Bleached. Thanks for the inspiration!

I bought a half yard from doggie bag and made 2 kitchen towels. Before washing dimension of 1 towel was 30.75" x 19". Hemmed before washing cutting off selvedge with a 3/8" double hem. Measuements after 24.5" x 16.25"

I think I bought 2 yards as a doggie bag, wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. But when I washed it and it fluffed up I knew it needed to be a throw, so... Voila! I made a bias tape from another doggie bag purchase of ILO98 Loire/Graphite. I love the combinations of textures and patterns, especially the reverse double sided-ness of the Royal Crest!

Amazing, handsome dishtowels. Once yard of fabric was divided into 4 future towels. Pre-wash I finished the long edges by pressing 1/2 inch and then turning again and sewing. Using a bit longer stitch makes it more attractive along with a slightly deeper contrast thread! After doing up the 2 long edges, I finished the short edges in the same way. Then on to wash and dry! Because we live in a dryer climate, I love drying these on a rack--but they have the same magic texture when using a dryer! Great gifts.

I bought two yards of this on a whim, not quite sure what I would do with it. Since most others had been making towels for their bathrooms, I figured that I may do the same. After it arrived, I realized that it just wouldn't look right in my house -- so I made a blanket/beach towel with it. I just washed and dried it once, hemmed the sides and put fringe on each end. I'm very happy with it, and I do love the fabric. It's very thick and has a great hand.
