IL019 All-purpose Safari Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2), Width 59"
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).

Customer Questions and Answers
would this make a good fabric for slipcovers. i am trying to find fabric that will not pill for my sectional.
This fabric is ideal for an occasionally used slip cover. Our customers also like to use the heavier 4C22 for something more substantial and durable.
which linen works best to make tea towels?
Our heavyweight linen 4C22 is ideal. We have used this based fabric and woven it in a narrow width version IL084 for everyday kitchen towels, and IL085 for something bright and colorful.
Would this be a good weight to make a duvet cover?
Yes, this is one of the fabrics we recommend for sewing a duvet using our free pattern: fabrics-store.com/sewing-patterns/classic-linen-bedding-duvet-cover-type-pdf
How will linen hold up as curtains in a sunroom? Morning sun in 4 windows, early afternoon sun in two others?
This fabric will allow light to beautifully filter through for your sunroom. If you want to block out more light, you might want to consider our 4C22 heavyweight fabric. Overtime, the fabric may brighten on the sunny side due to UV, so keep this in mind as our fabrics do not have any sun protection coatings applied to them.
What is the difference between "softened" and "signature finish" on your medium weight 100% linen? Janet

Is this a good weight for a slip cover for a settee? thank you. Marianne
The IL019 has been used for slipcovers and other upholstery projects but usually for items are not in what is considered a high traffic area. The more popular choices are fabrics that are 7 ounces or greater in weight.
How wide is your fabric
This one is 59" wide. On the main website when you click on the individual colors/patterns/designs within a group it will take you to a larger description page that lists all of the specifications of that item including width.
The top color linen is the Safari Softened, IL019. I used a botanical printing process with local foliage to print the leaves on the lower part, IL019 Bleached Softened. Used some ferrous sulphate in the process, which changed the color slightly when leaves were rolled and steamed. The pattern is Butterick B6416, an older pattern that i found online.
