At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

Beautiful light weight fabric
Reviewer: Roxanne

Light weight but washes and starches beautifully. Made a simple lined sundress and sewed up very nicely.

Salmon-pink OR pale orange
Reviewer: Janet

I washed my IL020 APRICOT ICE this morning and have it hanging out on the clothes line where I can admire it. When I first saw it under artificial light it it appeared warm, salmon-pink. The color looks quite different out in the sunshine where it appears pale orange. Except for one tiny darker orange slub, which doesn't bother me, the fabric is perfect. I have worked with some of Fabrics-Store's other IL020 handkerchief linen (IL020 NATURAL is my favorite) and have been very happy with the results. I pull threads and use a grid cutting board to keep the grain true. I'm making some summer tops to go with my IL202 NATURAL skirt. I hope that Fabrics-Store will bring back IL202 NATURAL, and also, DRIED THYME.
