IL020 Handkerchief Autumn Gold Softened - 100% Linen - Light (3.7 oz/yd2)
Johannes Vermeer was a master of understatement, crafting exquisite, enigmatic beauty from quiet scenes of domestic life. AUTUMN GOLD linen's warm indulgent tone takes its cue from the golden light that ignites these hushed interiors and makes them shine with the gloss of precious metal. Strategically placed strands of complimentary colors including Delft blue and china white allow yellow tones to resonate and sing out even brighter, transforming ordinary interiors into magical places of silent wonder.
At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 58 inch wide 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".
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
What is the best weight to use for napkins.
For everyday napkins we like to use our IL019 medium weight linen, or this IL020 lightweight linen. For special occasions you can't go wrong with the 1C64 luxury linen.
This weight linen is my favorite for blouses and I love the Autumn Gold color! I made two different style blouses using this color and weight. I wish FS would make more of the colors available in the ILO19 in this weight, too!
I recently bought 2+ yards of autumn gold and 4 other colors of the light weight softened linen. The variation in fabric weight was pretty surprising as well as the softened finish which was pronounced in some but lacking in others. The autumn gold was a bit heavier than the other colors, but washed up with a nice soft finish. The lightest weight color by far was the silver lilac.
Always awesome!! I don't know how to put it better. When i did have a problem (my fault) it was handled quickly, personally, yet professionally!! I will never buy linen, or anything they carry, from another vendor!!
I've bought the 020 linen before, and this is as nice as I expected. Only problem is, I was expecting it to be the same color as the 019 Autumn Gold linen, and it isn't. It has much more of a brown tone in it, so if what you want is a more lightweight version of that bright reddish gold, this isn't it. That said, it's still a pretty color, and I will use it.
I made a 900AD Norwegian Viking under-dress out of this linen and I love it! I paired it with an aqua blue apron dress and I get more compliments on this garment than any other I have completed. I never would have said this color would look great on a very pale red-head, but it does. The fabric is very light, great for humid summer days, but I do not get sunburned through it. Easy to work with, and the color does not bleed (I did white linen thread embroidery on the garment and the white is still crisp after many machine washings and hang drying.)
