IL019 All-purpose Mix Natural - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
The Natural color thread in this fabric is the earth made color of flax when it has been retted and woven into thread. No dyes, no bleach. The only thing that impacts the color of the cloth from one production to the next ( if it is more beige or grey) is the amount of sunshine and rain that particular flax harvest had.
Bleached linen color thread is made by "stripping" the natural color out of flax ( 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.
Mix Natural color is achieved with one bleached thread and one natural color thread interwoven together. As a result - you have a grey toned natural color that is a great compliment to all other colors.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 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.

Customer Questions and Answers
I made a jacket out of mixed natural softened a couple years ago. Will this fabric match the softened version? in color and texture? thanks
It's best to get a color sample. There will be variations in the color of the flax harvested and milled every season, so you may find there is subtle difference.
This along with the other two orders of linen were spot on for me. I have been doing Architecture and Interiors, commercial and residential for 40+ years. Finding this source for fabrics has been a real fun place to get fabrics for personal use as well... Cheers to the people that have helped me.
The two Linen colors I've worked with IL019 MIX NATURAL and 4C22 GREY MIST Softened are lovely. Both fabrics are so easy to fold and manipulate that it was a joy to sew. I found the weight of the Linen perfect for making a soft toy, it allowed the filling to stay inside and I fell in love with the rustic look of the 4C22 GREY MIST Softened.
Can't go wrong with this mixed linen, perfect mid weight for any project.
Loved working with this fabric. I made two duvet covers, pillowcases and fitted sheets for our new RV. That's a LOT of linen, more than 20yards, but it'll last a lifetime.
This was my first purchase from fabric store. I made the crisp linen pants from the free online pattern. I made them for my husband. They work pretty well unisex.They work pretty well unisex I love the quality of the fabric and I would definitely purchase this item again.
I graduated in architecture and after 10 years working on large scale projects, I became a mother and started sewing toys for my children. Through playing with natural materials and curious shapes, I wanted to reinforce their natural development, inspire curiosity and creativity. I wanted toys that enriched interaction and didn't overload their senses (or mine). Thus the small handmade brand mauvais marie was born. Now my children are 4 and 2 years old, they give opinions about new designs and make special requests and the fabric dolls are still great friends and are memory triggers for these first years of life.
When I ordered this fabric I thought it was the "softened" version but alas it was not. That said it was pretty soft just after one wash & dry, extremely easy to work with, and made the perfect wide-legged pull on pants (Simplicity S9110) for this sewing beginner. Recommended!
I experimented to see how it accepted block printing ink - it did a great job! It even picked up tiny detail from a vintage car stamp! I will certainly be using it with more block printing. I used some in the current linen challenge / contest - and it worked beautifully. This is a great linen fabric!
