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.

Soft and cuddly and breathable
Reviewer: Maxine

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.

Great Curtains for Maximizing East Facing Exposure
Reviewer: Peggy

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!

IL019 signature finish linen
Reviewer: Barbara

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.

Favorite linen
Reviewer: Kay

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.

This linen got me sewing again
Reviewer: Michele

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.

Excellent quality and the softest linen
Reviewer: Catherine

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.

Linen is great fabric!
Reviewer: Kwihui

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.

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

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.

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.

I bought this linen on a whim because it was on sale. It was a 5-yard minimum purchase. I haven't made anything for myself in at least 30 years, but I found the perfect pattern for this gorgeous linen and I made this top. I have 2 yards left! Oh, the possibilities!

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.
