Bleached color is achieved by "stripping" the natural pigment out of the fibers( just like you would with bleaching hair). What you are left with is a very soft shade that is just ever so slightly an off-white color. 
Bleached is the basics of any project and loves being dyed. It is actually what we use to dye the colors. A truly versatile base and a must-have addition to your fabric repertoire.

This 2.5 ounce slightly lighter, more open weave gauze has the same strength, durability and versatility as its counterpart IL030, but with its own unique look and feel.

Perfect for Elizabethan Smocks

Hand-sewing this fabric into Elizabethan smocks has been a powerful joy. I have a project on deck that involves four entirely hand-stitched smocks, and after finishing the first one, I find myself greedily looking forward to cutting the second one out today. I pre-washed the fabric on the hottest setting and dried it on high heat; it is whisper-soft, steam-irons up perfectly and is simply a dream to work with.

just too thin

i have not been able to like this fabric. it unravels faster than any fabric i've known. it's crooked, and does not cause happiness. i won't buy it again.

Good Linen

I love this linen. I made 2 scarfs and they came out perfect. One for myself and one for BFF.

Julie profile image Question

Has anyone tried making a shower curtain out of this weight? or do you think the handkerchief weight would be better?

Very sheer

I bought this thinking I could make some lightweight summer tops, but it is VERY sheer. It has a great hand to it after a couple of washings, but I would have to double it to make it wearable. I guess I'll save it to make tea towels or hankies, or it would be perfect for baby gowns.
