IL020 Handkerchief Light Pink Softened - 100% Linen - Light (3.7 oz/yd2)
Pale, sugary sweet colors like that of LIGHT PINK Linen graced Jacopo da Pontormo's heavenly scenes, basking figures, and scenery in an aura of supernatural light.
A leader in 16th century Italian Mannerism, Pontormo's swirling stories were filled with dynamic drapery, floating figures, and heightened passages of color, taking flight from reality into flamboyantly spiritual realms.
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
I want to make Japanese style aprons for a man, a woman, and a toddler. They will be lined with cotton fabric. What weight 100% linen would you recommend? Thanks
Our customers will use the IL019 middleweight linen if color and a smoother linen is needed. For a heavier linen with a bit of texture they will use the 4C22
I bought three yards with the plan to make myself and my daughter matching dresses. The fabric is so incredibly see-through. I hate to wear a slip with the dress I made because that defeats the purpose of buying linen.
I have been sewing with linen for some time and I only purchase it from Fabrics-store.com. This particular linen is so soft and the color is a perfect pink. I am so pleased.
This fabric is perfect for the simple lines of this A line dress with a circular ruffle, McCall 7774. I laundered and dried 2 times before cutting. Facing is batiste with light weight fusible woven interfacing for stability. It hangs beautifully. I love working with this linen fabric. It does exactly what you want it to do!
This is summery, light and pretty. Perfect to wear. Easy to sew. Pleasant to look at. Wash and edge first.
I just discovered sewing with linen, and it has been nice! I started out with with the 5.3 oz. weight, and I made 2 basic tops. It was easy to sew, with a lovely texture and natural beauty. I decided to try the lighter weight linen, and right now I am into pink. I made a simple wrap tunic. Wearing it for the first time today, I already received a compliment at Starbucks! I am planning more projects with natural and melon.
