IL019 All-purpose Optic White Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
A crisp, true bright white that is clean and pure in look and feel.
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.
The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Thank you for letting us know, much appreciated.
I would reply now but I'm making a suit, matching trousers, and 2 shirts for my son-in-law for an Asian trip this fall. I would love to respond immediately, but with your tolerance I would like to wait until the project is completed. LaVada Roufs

Hi I work for a watch company named F.P.Journe and we're opening a new Boutique in New York. The Boutique will also be a social space with a full kitchen to host dinners and aperitifs - and for that, we would need napkins (normal ones for dinners & small, squared ones for aperitifs), and tablecloths. Everything would need to be white with our logo embroidered in white. Could you please provide me with some suggestions? Then we could organize samples shipping Many thanks Best,
Thank you for your inquiry, I will send the information you requested directly to your email.
I have worked with various weights of linen from various vendors from various countries. This linen is far superior especially for the price. As an added bonus the service received is always excellent and courteous.
This is my all time favorite for summer clothing. This time I'm planning a blouse... cool & comfortable, no fuss on a hot, humid day. Can't go wrong. Perfect!
I love the IL019 signature finish fabric. I use it extensively for embroidery projects sold on my Etsy shop (AdaliaSeasonalDecor). The signature finish is fantastic. So soft, wrinkle resistant and easy to work with. It's the perfect weight for most of my projects including tea towels, pillows and decorative pillows. The optic white is a slightly off-white.
I purchased the medium weight linen. I originally intended to make shower curtains for our farmhouse guest suite. But after I washed the fabric, I really fell in love with it. Do I still make crazy amazing shower curtain? Or do I make a summer quilt? I am leaning towards summer quilt. Decisions can be so much fun. Excellent quality- gotta be honest. I really wasn't expecting this being so perfect. Optic white linen. So soft but durable. It will only get more soft with use. It reminds me of that old European Country (it was Southern Germany) Bed&Breakfast. Her linens were what I stive for now. Wish me luck
I chose FS OPTIC WHITE Midweight Linen to make the Mykonos Pants and something that hadn't occurred to me at the time was that white linen is not opaque. Maybe with a heavier weight it would be a different story, but when I look in the mirror all I see is my black underwear and the pocket linings. Something to bear in mind next time when choosing a fabric!
I've chosen to make The Assembly Line Tulip Dress because it has a fitted bodice that will be flattering on my curvy figure. It also has a zipper back, and until now, I've managed to avoid zippers! Inspired by a Dissh ready-to-wear dress similar to this pattern, I've made the dress with FS OPTIC WHITE linen. Something about white on older women is very appealing. I imagine it as embracing that crone-goddess energy. Women don't need to hide when they get older. We're at our most appealing selves when we have earned this much wisdom and power. White feels like owning that space and radiating the kind of settled satisfaction I feel in my own body and life right now.
