IL019 BLEACHED - 100% Linen - Middle (5.3 oz/yd2)
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.

The last two orders 1st received were the special linen that could be embroidered etc. and it was only 3 yards. The second order was for the same linen any 5 yards was ordered. I recently washed both linen pieces and they were not the same. The weave was tighter and denser. I really would like a 5-yard repeat of that special linen allowing me to add embroidery. Please advise.
Absolutely love this fabric...perfect for summer shirts and pants, just wash and hang to dry. A little stiff, but it softens as worn. I live in Tucson, AZ and depend on linen for desert cofort.
I made a queen size dust ruffle and it turned out even better than I imagined. The color, quality, feel, and drape of this linen is amazing. So happy I took a chance.
I absolutely love this fabric'my introduction to linen from Fabrics-store. I have ordered more, and will rethink my wardrobe.
I have not yet had the opportunity to make up my window treatments with this , but when I used this weight in a different color, It turned out great! Looking forward to sewing this up soon!
I purchased this product as a trial to make linen handkerchiefs for my hubby. He recently purchased a pack of cotton, only to find that after 2-3 washings they were developing holes. Quote,"I wish I could find linen hankies like I used to have." So off to Fabric store to order a piece I could test. I am serging the edges and then turning this as a hem. Washing only softens so far and no holes. Thanks
Just bought a 20 yard bolt. So many uses for bleached linen at this weight and width....clothing, curtains. You can't go wrong.
I like that fabric very macth
I intentionally shrank mine in the wash, so that I wouldn't have surprises later. I laid it flat to dry, and then ironed before cutting out my pattern. It was easy to do the rolled seams on the neckline of my tunic top (see picture gallery) because the linen will crease by hand, and I barely needed to pin it! As a finished garment it has a great textured look, although I DO need to wear skin-coloured undergarments. It's so comfortable on hot days!
My bleached linen is turning into dressy dinner napkins; large and hemmed with entredeux. The linen takes a light starching very well and does not stink under a hot iron. I use a #50 cotton thread in pastel shades with a #19 wing needle. This linen floats through the operation without stalling or bunching or otherwise frustrating me. I have enough linen for a lovely, dreamy blouse but it's 10 degrees outside so that will have to wait.
This was my first order and exactly what I wanted! The color is rich and the quality of the linen is superb! I'm using it to make machine embroidered pillows. Customer service is amazing!!!! So glad I found your shop!
WONDERFUL white: not a true 'modern' bleached white nor a cream, 'Bleached' seems like a white color that might have been common a few hundred years ago. Perfectly acceptable as a white but much softer in color-value than the thumbnail portrays (& easily softened in texture with a couple of trips through the washer & dryer - no pampering needed either, this is excellently sturdy stuff!). I've made a bunch of bread-bags & kitchen toweling this time around (11/2014) & will probably use this for summertime nightgowns & petticoats next year when the seasons change.
I am in LOVE with this linen!! I purchased some for dinner napkins (for my daughter's b'day) and some for a skirt for myself. The prewashing made them SOOO soft. I've made the napkins. Oh.My.Goodness. It sewed up beautifully!! I made them on the large side (21" square) and there's no way I could have purchased nicer linen napkins anywhere. Now I can hardly wait until I (have the time to) make my blue linen skirt!!
IL19 has become one of my favorite fabrics to work with. It is incredibly easy to sew, is soft yet has body to it. I love it so much that I'm planning to make airy, white drapes with my latest stash.
I've been trying new projects this year and I stumbled across this site in my search for new things to try. I decided to try hand towels from this linen and I love them! The linen softened beautifully after two washings and feels expensive!I love this linen and it was very easy to use. I plan on ordering more for future projects!
This is the 'go-to' linen in our house! We do historical re-creating, and this keeps us looking good and nice and cool.
What a lovely crisp almost blue white. Makes beautiful pillow slips.
Wonderful fabric, BUT BE AWARE it's not "snow white" in colour, more of an off-white. Stiff upon arrival, but will soften after washing a few times - you should pre-wash before projects anyway :) I will use for 14th century undergarments that won't be seen often, but will try another "white" next time. Maybe "optic" white will be more of a pure white.
I bought this fabric to try on a special and it is everything it says and more. I am making pieces with it that have embroidery and it handles nicely in the hoop/Qsnaps. I plan to try it with wool crewel work in the future. Thanks so much!
I bought this fabric because of a promotion. UGH! It is yellow, not white, has a very stiff hand and looks like a linen poly blend. This is not quality fabric.
I was given 2 small pieces of this fabric (the shipping label was still with the fabric when I received it). After softening by several hot water washings, I made it into veils for the chalice and paten, 2 towels for the priest and napkins for the Holy Communion bread. These items were embellished with hemstitching, drawn thread or Ruskin work and Montmellick style embroidery. It had just enough body to make embroidery easy and just enough softness to make drawing out the threads for the Ruskin and hemstitching work easy. I highly recommend this fabric as a beautiful, easy to work and an affordable fabric for communion and altar linens. I am working on a fair linen embellishment design and I will recommend the purchase of this fabric to my customer.
I used my last purchase of this fabric to make pillowcases and large hand towels as wedding gifts. The bride does period reinactment and these items will be used both in her home and at events.This fabric made a lavish gift at a very reasonable cost. Thank goodness I saved enough to make pillowcases for our home! These wash well and are wonderful to sleep on. Dianne
IL019 takes dye beautifully and is just an all-around excellent fabric, being both versatile and economical. Sleeping under my new duvet cover, I just want to keep touching the fabric. It isn't super-soft, but it has a pleasing texture that makes my skin happy! Somehow it feels better than plush synthetics.
...it works pretty well. Two layers *just* pass the drop test, so I made a simple Viking-style overtunic out of 3 layers for my armor. It is a bit stiff but seems to get better with washing.
WOW!! This is a gorgeous fabric with a wonderful texture. I am using it to make draperies, and it hangs beautifully on the rod. The color is not a stark white, so it is softer looking against the walls. I love this fabric. I will definitely be back to order more. Really gorgeous stuff. Thank you very much!
IL019 is a midweight linen that arrives with a crisp hand before washing. It softens with washing and age. I machine wash and dry all my linen. This is heavier than ILO20. I successfully used it to make a pioneer reenactor dress (1845 Godey's) for my daughter. I made it in brick pink which seems to be no longer available. What a beautiful color. IL019 fabric sews easily. It holds pleats well. It is suitable for dresses, blouses, and skirts. It is sheer enough that a slip may be necessary. I would hesitate to make it into a suit, but I could see making a casual summer jacket from it. It is somewhat light for pants unless lined or using a darker color, but I prefer a heavier fabric (6 oz plus) for bottom weights. I will buy this again.
I wasn't sure about ordering linen online, I was afraid it would be limp or not have the body I wanted... but this fabric is even better than I hoped! I washed it in hot water and threw it in a hot dryer and it came out still slightly crisp, just perfect! Thanks, I will definitely be ordering more :)
Great, lightweight fabric; not \
I ordered a few yards to see if I liked it. I am very impressed. It is very versitile and has a nice \\\\feel\
This is the fourth time I\'ve re-ordered this fabric this summer. This time, I\'m ordering a 20-yard bolt. I wash this fabric, then dye it using procion MX fabric dyes. The fabric is strong, takes color beautifully, and takes a lot of processing while still maintaining its soft hand. It washes to a soft rumpled look that I make into dresses, blouses, jackets and pants. All this for less than $6 a yard, and it\'s 59 inches wide too! This is my ultimate value/versatility fabric! I LOVE THIS FABRIC!
Men's dress shirt for an adult son. He calls it his Indiana Jones shirt. Pattern was Lekala free men's dress shirt. I had so much trouble with the directions for the (rather wide) button band, and their customer service is native Russian-speaking, so, although they were kind and patient, I finally had to wing it. I guess the other written instructions might have been difficult, too, but I already knew the procedures. He'll enjoy this shirt for so many years, and think of his mom every time he wears it. The fabric, of course, forgave all my trial runs. Linen is so obedient!
Once again I used Linen fabric to make many Altar Lines such as the Corporals pictured. The sewing process is easy as the machine just glides along; once ironed the linen is beautifully presented. There is no need for spray starch. I am very happy with the results. Thank you for such a versatile fabric.
This is an Elizabethan era linen shirt, modeled after the linen shirt, from the Uppsala Cathedral Museum, Sweden, which was worn by Nils Sture, when he was murdered on 24 May 1567, as detailed in Janet Arnold's "Patterns of Fashion 4". This wonderful linen was the perfect weight for this piece, and was so easy to work with. The shirt is entirely stitched by hand with linen thread. I could not be more pleased with the end result. I use this linen frequently for historical re-enactment costumes, and will certainly buy more of it in the future.
I LOVE working with your linen. I told my friend that working with this linen is a sensual experience. It's true! It is slightly see through and soft, yet full bodied. When ironed the fabric just crisps right up. It feels good, looks good.
The groomsmen are active in the SCA and the Renaissance Fairs. Curt asked me if I would sew for him. His wife said to me, "He really likes the shirt you made him. He likes the quality of the fabric." I was pretty amazed that he would notice.
I said, "I will sew for friends." With wide eyes he said, "Am I your friend!?" "Yes", I told him, "you are now."
I made 7 underdresses and 7 full sleeved mens'shirts out of IL019 , which you can see at the left. The sleeves keep their full flounce and do not droop. It is light enough to wear under layers. You have to be a bit careful cutting it out, you have to be sure the fabric is laying square.
I also tried the heavy weight 4C22 - Bortovka for two skirts and was very happy with how the skirts hang in full folds. I made darts at the waist that were then tacked to the waist from the tip of the dart. One girlfriend really likes how she can saunter and dip with her beautiful linen skirt.
This is based on a dress from around 1912. We were invited to a themed wedding and I made it for my daughter. I love that I can wash and press the dress and it doesn't have to go to the cleaners. The feel of it and how well it breathes are perfect for an active 3.5 year old. It was worth every minute I spent making it. People stopped us on the street to compliment and take photos of her.- Amy

A SMALLER PICTURE!! Using designs from Annthegran.com, as well as my own drawings on my Janome sewing machine, I created these tea towels for my special friends who appreciate such old fashioned customs. The medium weight white linen received the embroidery positively beautifully! I highly recommend the fabric - the nubbs are quite fitting for a good linen. To me it says it is truly 100% Linen.
