IL020 Handkerchief Krista Natural Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Light (3.7 oz/yd2), Width 58"
linen has the creamy freshness of homemade custard or Cornish cream.
British painter Ben Nicholson brought this colour's glowing light into
his carefully structured, minimal canvases and relief sculptures,
investing them with an intimate warmth that seems somehow instantly
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
Is this linen see through? I would like to make pants but don't wan't to have to line them. Thanks!
Yes, this fabric is sheer in the lighter colors. for a 100% opaque light color, please see our 4C22 heavyweight fabric.
I'm just curious. Is this the natural color of this particular linen or is it dyed?
This is a dyed color. For natural colors, search "natural" that will be the only color name.
Referring to Krista Natural: it shoes as a soft yellow color. I would like to know if that is correct. Thank you.
The Krista natural is considered an ivory shade with a more yellow than cream hue.
This fabric is a dream to work with, and perfect for the half curtains I made for a spot where we wanted a little more privacy. Photo snd technical details below.
This was the exact color that I was looking for. I'm not a yellow person, so I was looking for a soft buttercream. Perfect.
Perfect sheen snd light hand. Bought to add to stash and have several possible projects in mind. Cocktail napkins, summer pj's with heirloom hem stitching, shirts and cover ups. Also love the service and quick shipping, thanks!
My 81 year old mother wanted a peasant blouse, with long sleeves, to wear to her first trip to a Renaissance festival. The free pattern was easily adapted to make wrist length sleeves and the Palest yellow color complemented her green brocade skirt (purchased at a thrift shop) nicely. As the weather warms up, the peasant blouse may get worn to more mundane events, she found it comfortable in warm humid weather.
for years I had been looking for a blouse to go with a yellow print batiste skirt. This is it! I've made what has become my favorite summer blouse. It also looks lovely with my brown, green and natural linen skirts.
I used this fabric to make half-curtains for a spot where we wanted a little more privacy. It has just the right level of opacity for this project, snd it was a dream to work with! Using a full width of the fabric for each panel provided just the right amount of fulness (going into a 34" frame for the single window and using two panels for the doubler window). Technical details: the bottom hem is 2 1/2" folded over twice. Side gems are 1" folded over twice, plus the selvage that I was *ahem* too lazy to trim off. The rod pocket is 1 1/2" folded over once, plus 1/4"hem.
I bought a number of the Krysta Natural from the Doggie Bag to make napkins for my daughter. This linen was a pleasure to work with, and this will not be my last project using this linen. I would suggest that you wash it more than once before sewing, as I had to clean lint out of my machine numerous times during sewing. I'll be back for more from Fabrics-Store!
