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".

Perfect for baby!
Reviewer: Debbie

This is perfect for baby clothing. I used this and the same in black mised with a soft cotton poppy print to make my best friends granddaughters first birthday dress. Her momma is thrilled because when laundered correctly it requires little or no ironing and doesn’t fade at all. I prewashed in a cold rinse cycle and dried in a cool dryer. Perfect. Love you.

Oh my goodness - she is precious! I use the IL020 for my minion as well - super easy to wash and super soft. Thank you for the amazing photos!

fantastic!
Reviewer: Tamar

Used this fabric for the linen tunic on your website. Absolutely thrilled with the color and weight of IL020. My favorite garment EVER. I'm going to stop wearing cotton knit/jersey as soon as I can make enough replacements of linen as it's so much more comfortable. Lovely red, but get a swatch if you're concerned about warm or cool reds as I think it's a little on the warm side, rather than a cool red.

Colour
Reviewer: Andrea

The linen is fantastic. I can see blouses and night gowns and all sorts of items made from this linen. I was worried it might be too thin when I ordered it, but it is fine. The colour is a little different than on the picture, of course. It is a cold colour, but a touch lighter than I thought. Nevertheless, very nice. Can't wait to make something from it. And I will post it, if it turns out.

Red IL020
Reviewer: Brenda

This is beautiful and perfect weight for tunic or blouse. Nice drape and pre-washed beautifully. Only light pressing if desired! A beautiful blue red. No orange in this red!

Miss Poppy’s first birthday dress with firecracker red linen and some lightweight softened black in the ruffle at bottom. The red linen diaper cover with big black roses and hand decorated socks and hair bow made her first birthday POP !

IL020 firecracker red. Excellent drape for this princess seam summer dress. A matching under slip was made. The fabric was washed 2 times before cutting.

This fabric has a soft texture and the color is beautiful. I recommend it for a blouse.
