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).

Mina profile image Matches a Spoonflower print perfectly.

From the swatch, this lovely blue, not too bright, matches perfectly the blue. in a favorite Amy Vail print from Spoonflower, which I wanted to use as the front bodice of a princess-seamed tunic. Very short stock now, hope it comes back in.

In case anyone else would like to compare these blues side by side: the first fabric on the upper left is Marina Blue, and the second is French Blue. I've been very pleased with the quality of this lightweight fabric! Also, the cuts are always generous, so I still have more than full yardage even after washing & drying on hot, steam ironing on high, and then evening the ends by pulling a weft thread and cutting along the straight line.
