IL019 BLEACHED FS Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Middle (5.3 oz/yd2)
Sale price: $11.20 per yard (5% off)
This off-white color is achieved by "stripping" the natural color out of flax. You are left with a very soft white shade.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 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.
Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special "Hot Wash" process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight. As a Bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage(<3%), giving you more fabric to get your projects done. This finish, which requires manual human efforts, makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered.

I've prewashed this and it came out very well with miminal wrinkles. Can wait to use it for a blouse and some linen towels.
This fabric is beautiful. Can't wait to start making dishtowels out of it so that I can embroider on them. I think my clients will love them.
Bought this to make a bedspread. Haven't made it yet. Decided I need more to make a different type of spread. Can't wait to get it made.
I love love love this linen, so many ideas came to mind on this one when I got it but I haven't had time to sew with it yet. I will get to it very soon and I know for sure I will be ordering a lot more than the original 6 yards. I can see the drapes already flowing and the cool summer clothes. Thank you for such beautiful fabric.
I just received my order today (I placed AND received my order in only 4 days. Amazing!) and I am blown away by this linen. This is hands down my new favorite fabric and will be the only linen that I purchase for my small shop going forward. The quality and the softness of this linen surpasses any other that I've ever purchased. The price (I did only pay the discounted introductory price) is unbelievable for the quality of the product that you'll receive. Even at the regular price this is a steal! I'm completely sold and I am beyond thrilled that I found fabrics-store.com.
I have only made one project so far with this. I made my brother and his wife linen hand towels for Christmas and embroidered on them... I sewed them all by hand and they came out great. I've never worked with linen before and am looking forward to doing more with the rest of the fabric I bought!
I love linen and I already love, love, love THIS fabric. I've washed it and it's neatly folded on my sewing table. I touch it, stroke it and sometimes hold it up to rest my head on it. I think I'm going to make a pair of summer pajamas and will soon look at patterns.
This fabric was so perfect for an updated version to my old, old, old, ugly, dingey 1970's hooded lightweight jersey mid length robe that I cried for while taring it apart to use as a pattern. I am so pleased with my new linen maxi (longer) version, even after 4 washings it is absolutely divine to wear. I now know I can do anything if the will is present. Thank you for a wonderful fabric.
I used this fabric to make a top bedsheet. The fabric is absolutely lovely and it feels luxurious. I initially bought 3 yards from their introductory offer and liked it enough to buy another 3 yards for the top sheet. That was perhaps a bit risky given dyelot problems but the consistency was great! I wanted to try linen to see if it would be cooler than cotton and I think it is! I haven't been tossing aside my covers at night, which is a real plus. This premium softened linen, as suggested in the directions, really does put off a lot of lint when washed before sewing, but I have no complaints after that. I have bought "softened" from these folks and I also have used this premium. I like the "softened" but the premium, in my opinion, feels like luxury.
I received IL019 BLEACHED FS Signature and immediately loved the feel. I've washed it, came out great. I plan on making a couple of blouses. Love, love linen!
Love this fabric! The texture is soft to touch, very flowing. Can't say enough about it!!!!
When I received this fabric, I thought it felt absolutely yummy. Very soft and not stiff like most linen feels. I have not had a chance to sew with it yet but I am really looking forward to making a dye bath and getting started!
Marie I believe that's the Ogden cami by true bias
Anyone know the pattern that Margaret used to create her lovely thin strap a line white cami (pictured sideways in the "post your work")
Purchased this for some tops. Hand dyed and the colors picked up super nice. This has a wonderful drape, washes nicely, irons well, super soft and comfy. This will be my garment go to. Would also make nice towels, tablecloth, pillowcases, sheets, etc.
This linen is fantastic! I already prewashed and dried it. It's so soft unlike other linen I have used that have never softened up. I have been sewing most of my life and have never come across a linen that is so comfortable. Can't wait to make my garments!
I think this is a very versatile and useful fabric! It is both weighty and soft which makes it great for several uses. I thought the price was a lot at first but it is proving to be worth it!
I used 2 yards of this wide fabric to shibori dye with Dharma fiber reactive dye. I am extremely pleased with the results, so ordered more.
I got this with the 3 yard deal they offered. It is a lovely weight. Washed and pressed beautifully. Used it for the Quick and Easy Tee on the blog. Everything came out just perfectly. It is a pleasure to sew with something as soft and fine as this. Can't wait to wear outside, since it is so cool and comfortable.
Haven't sewn with this fabric yet, but prepping it - washing and ironing has been dreamy. Its a great quality linen at an amazing price. Also, it came in the mail quickly!! I already have several other colors in my cart now that I know how lovely it is!! Thanks
I just received my linen, so haven't made anything with it yet. but the linen seems lovely. Delivery was incredibly speedy too. Thanks!
I just received this Linen. It has a very nice feel and appears to drape very well. Will buy more soon!!
I love the fabric but I'm in the process of moving so I haven't had a chance to use it.
So beautiful I don't want to cut into it. Definitely will purchase more.
Just got my yardage of IL019 BLEACHED FS Signature Finish linen. Oh, my. It is incredibly luscious. I cannot wait to make a gorgeous blouse.
just fabulous fabric
The fabric arrived yesterday, and when I pulled it from the packaging the first thing I noticed was the texture. Soft, smooth, wonderful to the touch. I purchased the fabric to make a nightgown, and I wanted something with a bit of weave to embroider on. I may skip the embroidery as I am looking forward to wearing it sooner than later. I will be buying some heavier weight fabric to make a tunic top, balaclava, and loose leggings to wear under my armor as I need something exceedingly breathable to keep me from overheating. Thanks so much for your wonderful products.
I needed window treatments to warm up a dark east-facing dining room; this bleached linen with a tinge of yellow does the trick for counter-acting natural blue light. It's almost as if the curtains capture the light and project it into the room. The dining area feels about 2 feet bigger than it did before. I used a 4mm felling foot to join the panels and to hem the edges perfectly. Two passes down each seam created a beautiful self-fabric "ribbon" to dress up the panels. Washed and pressed, the linen is absolutely beautiful. Couldn't be more pleased with how they turned out!
I am very happy with this linen purchase....it is very soft, sews up so nice and is best of all not too sheer to wear without an underlayer. I made a tunic with eyelet trim at hip and sleeve hem.
I was looking for linen for Tina Givens clothing patterns. I was directed here. Purchased the 5 yd minimum of white, washed and dried it and it was perfect. Soft and just a bit crushed. I have made a dress ,and now I am making a two-layered top. Want to get some in Black now and maybe another color. So pleased.
It's so hard to find good fabric locally anymore. I bought this linen when it a 5-yard trial deal. I am so happy with it that I started sewing for myself again. Since then, I've ordered more linen, in different colors and weight, it's a new addiction :) It's soft and comfortable to wear, easy to sew and has a nice texture.
I was lucky enough to purchase this as an introductory offer. When it arrived I didn't work with it right away, then I decided to use it to create a slip to wear under a lightweight dress I made with a previously purchased linen. I can't wait to make something else to wear from it feels really good.
I've purchased five yard sale, and I'd pondered awhile to decide what I wanted to make with this fantastic fabric! I wanted to sew and make something that will be handed down to my one and only daughter, then for my one and only granddaughter from our only son. After much thought, I decided on making two summer blankets. The fabric is too nice to make clothes for just one person. I ended up with the two twin-long summer blanket/sheet. It turned out perfect, if I do say so myself. One is for my husband, the other, yours truly. I have crocheted laces, a border trim and it looks fabulous. My husband and I use it every night. His is blue trim, mine is green. My husband and I will be enjoying this beautiful linen fabric summer treat for a very long time. I'm attaching couple of photos just to give all of you an idea.
The biggest issue that I have found are several fairly large slubs in the weave and I am worried that they will affect the durability of the fabric. I love that this fabric does not have a selvage-to-selvage fold as most others do. I do wish that it was cut straight on the grain, but it was pretty straight. It had a strong chemical odor, but the odor came out in the first wash. I love how this fabric gets a soft look while using it rather than creasing like a rumpled up mess. The color is similar to French vanilla and has a lovely warm quality that I find more flattering to wear than stark white.
I used my linen to make a pair of drawstring pajama pants. So cool feeling and comfortable.
I bought this linen to make some Braies and an undershirt. it's soft and really good for it. Doesnt shrink either and feels WAY better than any premade garnments I got online.
This linen has a beautifully soft, smooth feel to it like butter. It is perfect for bed linen and clothing. I have been searching for a while for the perfect linen to make sheets and pillow cases .... this is the best. I love the luxurious feel. Can't stop touching it! I will also make full length bedroom curtains, it has excellent drape.
Over many years I have probably purchased the majority of your types of linen. I love every one and each has its own use. This linen is just the softest, most divine quality in every way. With prices and shipping so fair, you remain my go to source. I recommend you to all my sewing friends. Service is like NO other! Thank you!
I took advantage of the 5 yard special. This is beautiful fabric and I especially like the soft white color. The signature finish is nice and soft. Don't know what I'm going to do with it yet, but. . .
The only drawback I've ever found with linen is that it can be a little stiff at first--maybe at second, too. This felt good right out of the package, and after washing, its softness and drapiness was even better. I like the soft white color, too. Haven't decided what to make yet--new medieval smock? Nightgown? Regency chemise? 18th century under-petticoat? Edwardian garden party dress? Decisions, decisions.
Lovely color & weight. A joy to work with.
I've been wanting to try this linen and took advantage of special price for 5 yards. Wow! It's lovely fabric, speedy delivery, great price and wonderful service. Will be ordering again and have shared site with friends with hearty approval! Thank you again!
:) Thank you so much! We are glad you like the fabric - do share pictures with us.
I purchased exactly enough of this fabric for curtains. How much shrinkage can I expect?
Hi Sara, Because this fabric has gone through a process to get it to this softness - the shrinkage is under 3%
I'm making pants and a tunic out of it. Not finished yet, but it is sewing and pressing beautifully. I will post a picture when I'm done
I used this to make curtains for my bedroom. It was easy to work with and sewed up nicely. I made three tucks at the hem, and the weight made for a nice presentation.
I call this heirloom quality linen, it will be fabulous for wearing apparel as well as anything I want to embroider. Love the feel, the drape, the color, which I would call ivory. Thank you.
I just love the quality of the linen. I haven't yet decided what to make with it, but whatever it is I know will get tons of compliments.
Channeling the minimalist spirit of a modern woman, the Noa shirt is a modern classic. This simple shirt combines relaxed silhouette with classic tailored styling, like a point collar, sleeve cuffs and a back yoke. One of the most foundational and versatile pieces of any wardrobe, it can be dressed up or down so easily and pairs really well with just about anything. Made out of our finest linen, it'll get softer and softer with every wash. Sharpen your sewing skills and make a worthwhile addition to your handmade wardrobe!
When you think of quintessentially summer dresses, a camisole sundress instantly springs to mind. With its iconic spaghetti straps and bare shoulders look, it is a kind of dress you'd want to wear on those hot summer days when you feel like wearing as little as possible. Our Luna pattern is a classic camisole sundress thin spaghetti straps, semi-fitted lined bodice, side zipper and a gathered skirt. It also features two handy patch pockets that give it a relaxed feel. Cut from our Signature hot washed bleached medium linen, it is super soft and comfy and has a magic power of reflecting light and keeping you cool.
Lucia is a flowy, feminine sundress that adds romance to your look with a flirty faux-wrap front, spaghetti straps and a cinched drawstring waist. Its best assets are the plunging neckline and narrow straps that show a bit of skin on a hot day. There's something about crisp white linen that just screams summer. The fresh hues, the cooling effect on a warm day, the way white looks coupled with tanned skin... all good things that make a little white dress an absolute go-to for any occasion.
The closest to a "not moving" picture I could get out of the kid ( probably why we don't have many photos of finished boy garments lol). IL019 Bleached signature finish for his overalls. Front, side and back pockets for all the important stuff - pebbles, cars, sticks. Dry on the hanger to avoid ironing :)
Having a Flat-Felled Foot (felling foot) is worth the investment when working with your linen... no pinning or ironing necessary! Huge time-saver. Two passes down the edge and you have a completely reversible hem that looks absolutely perfect from either direction. Here, I used the felling foot to make a self-fabric "ribbon" hem at the fabric's edge for subtle interest and contrast of the light to dress up the curtain a tiny bit.
Five from five!! I made 5 tops from the five yard sale on this fabric! Made two of this top, two of another style top, and one of yet a third style top! Three of these tops have ruffles and the camis are partially lined! Love the softness and relative opaqueness of this fabric such that they can be worn without an underlayer!
Last night I finished the bridal shower gift for my friend's daughter. I had never sewn with linen before, so this was a learning experience, too. I truly hope she likes these 6 dinner napkins made from IL019 CRIMSON. I was hoping for more of a cranberry hue to it -- but it is a truer red (also pretty).
