Karen profile image Beautiful fabric!
Reviewer: Karen

I just received this fabric last night and immediately began prepping it for sewing. I thought I would use it for a scarf and it will need a few more washings before it softens enough to use it as one. I have a comment about the reviews of this particular linen--order a swatch if you have any doubts at all about how it will perform with the sewing project you have in mind. In all cases, if you wish to wash it, it will alter the linen to a lesser to greater degree depending upon how you wash it. I used a mild detergent, washed the fabric *by itself* and set the action of my machine to "gentle" cycle. I had no thread or stripe distortion and little shrinkage. It wrinkled as I expected it would, based on the reviews. I love it!!

Reviewer: Bethany

I ordered a yard for a Colonial neckerchief. It is very loosely woven and quite rough. I was offered a refund, but for one yard didn't bother. Please get a sample before ordering. I would not even use this for sheer curtains.

Elisabethe profile image Horribly disappointed
Reviewer: Elisabethe

I am quite saddened by this fabric. I washed it, by itself in a front-load machine, and dried it on a low setting to damp dry, and now the linen is DESTROYED. Even after ironing, sobbing the entire time, it is trashed. I have never had this happen before.

Lynne profile image Fine and floaty
Reviewer: Lynne

The ethereal floating quality of this fabric is exactly what I had searched for, perfect to allow light in while giving privacy. I'm a total novice and tried to read everything that sounded relevant to my project, however there was still an unexpected feature that did not come up in any reviews. The fabric is so delicate that it becomes flimsy when wet, and despite gentle handling the weave distorted alarmingly. It was a difficult sew for me, but in the end I have exactly what I wanted, beautiful fine soft linen drapes.

These gauze stripe curtains sewn for our living and dining rooms blend modern sophistication with a soft, cozy feeling. I love all the possibilities this fabric offers.

the photo here doesn't do justice to the gauzy semi transparency of this linen. i bought 4 yards thinking after shrinkage I could use the lines to guide machine embroidery. I'm not sure about this project now - it depends on how the fabric is after washing. It is pretty much transparent and then the stripe is semi transparent - stunning fabric

Reviewer: Vickie

I love all your linens and bought this from the doggy bag to give it a try. I am in love with this beautiful linen! So light and airy, it is the stuff of dreams. Haven't used it yet, because I can't decide what to make yet, but I know I want more!

Fabrcis-store buyer profile image surprised me
Reviewer: Anonymous

its a beautiful fabric but, not what i expected. i thought it was off white and beige. its more of a pale pale grey/green (very VERY slight green undertones). the weave is open - more so than the sheer fabrics. i think it would make a nice scarf or sheer curtain.... perhaps a very sheer shirt.

I love this linen, washed once, by itself, gentle cycle, cold water, mild detergent, and five minutes on very low heat in dryer so it is still damp and ready to hang to dry completely.
