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.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special 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 fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers


What is the difference between the IL019 optic white signature finish and optic white classic in terms of heft, drape and color. Signature finish appears a brighter white. I need to make drapes for a deck slider so I'm wondering which wild hold best drape and filter a little light without being translucent. I appreciate your thoughts Thank you. Deb

The only difference between these fabrics is the softening treatment on them. The signature finish fabric has already had a softening process which reduces it stiffness and softness it up as it if were already washed and used several times, so it will have more drape and a softer hand than the unfinished fabric. Both, once pre-washed will both filter light in the same way.

IL019 Optic White Signature Finish

This is one of my very favorite fabrics to work with. It has a lovely, soft hand, it's perfectly easy to cut and sew. I'm planning to make a breezy, white linen shirt... perfect for summer. By the way, this fabric also makes dreamy, summer curtains. Love it!

Signature Finish is the way to go!

I have enjoyed sewing with all of the fabric I have bought from FS, but the ones with the signature finish are special, with a soft buttery hand. The black is a staple, but I keep an eye out for it in whatever color is on sale. Lovely stuff.

No summer wardrobe is complete without a white linen dress! Crafted from our pure and soft linen, it is ideal for staying cool and comfortable in the heat all through the summer season. So breezy, feminine and chic, Rafaella is a pleasure to sew and to wear. With its fitted bodice, button-up front and collared neckline, Rafaella is a timeless classic. Plus, it looks gorgeous with a tan!
