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".

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).

Wonderful fabric
Reviewer: Maxine

This is one of the lightweight linens I bought recently. I have decided I won't wear anything but linen in the future. I just love it and will make a shirt out of it.

Perfect summer weight fabric
Reviewer: Cassie

I love the drape and feel of linen. It was time to replace a favorite pair of linen slacks which had worn too thin to wear. I chose this IL020 handkerchief fabric in 'softened natural.' I am very pleased with the result and have also created a matching top with the fabric. It is wash and wear, no ironing necessary as far as I am concerned. It always looks neat and is the perfect summer weight material.

Reviewer: Tammy

in my previous review i mentioned that there were some large strands woven in the fabric (concentrated in one small area) well i ordered 25 more yards of the lightweight linen and the whole piece showed up perfect. im so happy because i really love this linen and im happy that it is soft smooth and consistent in texture. beautiful.

Tammy profile image one of my new favourites
Reviewer: Tammy

this is definitely one of my new favourites (along with med weight mixed natural). i just love the texture of this linen and the colour is just so soothing. it SEEMS a little less sheer than the lighter colour light weight linen..... its prob just due to the fact that it is has more colour. its smooth and fine yet strong. i did find a few really large, lumpy "strands" woven in though. it was concentrated in one area of the linen and im hoping there are none in my next order of this linen. because i will be ordering lots more!

I love this weight for my shirts. This is the Riley pattern.
