IL019 BLEACHED FS Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Middle (5.3 oz/yd2)

Price: $11.06 per yard
Favored By: 70 people!

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, giving you more time to get your projects done.

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.

A few minor issues, but I would buy it again
Reviewer: Dianna

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.

Good for underclothes
Reviewer: Shawn

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.

Beautiful and soft
Reviewer: Alexandra

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.

Cloudlike softness!
Reviewer: Karen

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!

Wonderful fabric
Reviewer: Linda

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. . .

Wonderful feel
Reviewer: Kathleen

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.

Gorgeous fabric
Reviewer: Sara

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%

Basic Bleached
Reviewer: Sheila

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.

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).

I bought this fabric to experiment with dyeing it. It does beautifully. It is more loosely woen then I like for quilting, but it will make lovely table linens and I am experimenting with using it in a quilted jacket.
