IL019 All-purpose Antique White Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
The creamy tone of Antique White, with its tarnished brown undertones, glistened across the great Realist painter Gustave Courbet's canvases, investing them with the sparkling vibrancy of the French coast. Courbet's trademark palette was warm beige, sandy or golden tones, applied with a knife to the canvas in thick slabs as rich and heady as buttercream.
Dedicated to capturing the essence of real-time and place in these scenes, he observed how "Painting is an essentially concrete art and can only consist of the representation of real and existing things."
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.
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
Will this be a available soon?
I do not show this on any arriving schedules coming in on or before March, but please check back with us at the end of February to see if we have had any updates.
Can this fabric be use for punch needle? Thanks
I have had some customers use this for their pouch needle projects, but I would still consider purchasing a swatch to make sure the weight will work for your project.
should this linen be prewashed
Yes this linen should be pre-washed. You will find our recommended launder instructions at the site under Help Center which you will find at the footer of the main webpage under Services.
Antique White is more like a candlelight shade of white instead of ivory. As you can see from the other posts Antique White easily lends itself to heirloom techniques, projects, and vintage clothing. Of course its also great for contemporary garments. It would be great in home furnishings for a less rustic look than the Natural and Mix Natural.
I've used this linen several times for my textiles business. I've handprinted my own designs on it and sewed table runners and and pillows for happy customers. I'm about to sew up a toiletries bag with it. The weight and texture of it is just beautiful. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a light sand color.
I posted a picture of the high-low blouse I made using the pattern available here at Fabrics-Store, except I didn't use the elongated pockets. The fabric was a pleasure to work with and forgiving of my errors. It was the first time I used bias tape to find a neckline. This sturdy blouse will serve me very well over the next months!
Love this linen! washes up beautifully, and great to sew on. The color is perfect..coordinates with the other colors and weights. Normally I Use the heavy weight, but I'm really liking the medium lately for clothing.
Lovely creamy color, and so soft, I've made pants, tunics and other items with this gorgeous linen. Sews wonderfully! See the pictures for a tunic I made. Love all your linens and am always happy with the results of anything I sew.
