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".

Very grey
Reviewer: Anonymous

I keep coming back to this colour and then looking at the review pics and realising I've bought it before - it's not the lovely lavender you see o on the screen but a lilac-hued GEEY. This is partly the dye and partly the result of it being a lovely fine fabric that the light goes straight through, blanching the colour. Don't by this if A) you're not into washed out (no i don't mean pastel - it's not pastel) colours oe B) you only look food in bluish purples - this has a bit of a yellow cast

Just scrumptious
Reviewer: Maxine

This is only one of the lightweight linens I bought but the colour is divine. I'm still in the process of assembling a tunic in it which I hope to wear on a forthcoming cruise. I can't wait to try the others

Wonderful Everyday Linen for Shirts
Reviewer: Penelope

If you live in a warm climate, by all means, wear linen everyday. Lightweight IL20 linen is a wonderful choice for easy, fluid shirts with classic shirtmaking details. Pre-wash and dry at least twice and carefully press your fabric before cutting and sewing. Use a light weight high quality, professional fusible interfacing for plackets, collars, and cuffs; and for ease of pressing and a detailed shirt finish, serge all seams and edge stitch and top stitch seams. Yes, you do have to iron your shirts if you want to wear refined shirts; for a lived-in look, wear right out of the dryer.

Bias cut blouse in IL020 SILVER LILAC. Amazing fabric, and even more amazing on bias. Definitely will buy more linen of this weight, love-love-love. Color is simply gorgeous, not sure my camera captured all of its loveliness.
