IL020 Handkerchief Natural Softened - 100% Linen - Light (3.7 oz/yd2)
Natural is the earth made, not dyed, color of the flax plant once it is made into thread. No dyes, no bleach. The only thing that impacts the color of the cloth from one production to the next ( if it is more beige or grey) is the amount of sunshine and rain that particular flax harvest had.
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 used this to make a Riley shirt and it's just the perfect weight.
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.
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.
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.
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!
