Bleached color is achieved by "stripping" the natural pigment out of the fibers( just like you would with bleaching hair). What you are left with is a very soft shade that is just ever so slightly an off-white color. 
Bleached is the basics of any project and loves being dyed. It is actually what we use to dye the colors. A truly versatile base and a must-have addition to your fabric repertoire.

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.

I want to make a linen throw. What weight would be appropriate and should I make it two layers?

Debra • October 13, 2022

Typically you can use any of our linens for a throw, but it will come down to the look, feel color or pattern you are wanting. Layering would depend on which linen you choose. Our specialty linens such as our IL028, IL002 and Jacquard linens are also used.

A midweight bleached linen version of Lydia Naomis DreamFrock (was MilkmaidDress). Sewing it, I learned how to sew in a zipper, I reduced the cups about 80% and to be honest, it's one of my favorite makes ever. For me it's la dolce vita as a dress.

summer garden collection of girls dresses - Nice for machine embroidery too!

After reading your Shibori Dye tutorials, I had to try it. I used the Bleached Medium Weight linen and the Faye Duster/Kimono pattern. Am very happy with the result. SunRagsStudio sunragsstudio.etsy.com

For this skirt, since I used BLEACHED Medium Weight Linen, I didn't make the skirt as fitted but retained that pencil like silhouette. I designed this with a 4" elastic waist that eased in the fulness nicely. The hand draped flowers at the waist and along the skirt added weight that forces the skirt to hang straight. They also bring balance and interest.

Warlene • March 12, 2022

I use this fabric for everything. It sews beautifully and I've dyed it several times. It's lightweight, soft, and drapes beautifully.
