A sophisticated reversible linen that can be turned down for a contrast or used as one or the other. Endless possibilities as this is like getting two for one.

Linen is great for skin, water absorbency, and ease of garment care.
However, and I will be first to say, plain weave linen is too "flat" and not my first pick for items that need "snuggle volume".
Jacquard linen comes with "snuggle volume" but is just so heavy.

Having access to fabric engineers really helps... Allow me to introduce the newest addition to FS fabric repertoire of fluffy goodness - the double-sided IL028 100% linen fabric!

This cloth is only 6.6 ounces a square yard so just a smidge heavier than the All-Purpose medium weight.  

How does it get the snuggle volume? The trick is in the weaving technique... the cloth is double sided. Not like reversible, but as in woven with two fabrics that are interconnected into one cloth throughout the surface area.

Once the fabric goes in the first wash and dry - if fluffs up everywhere the 2 sides aren't connected. It will shrink about 8% the weft of the fabric ( width wise) and 8% warp of the fabric ( length wise).  You will feel like a creative genius when you pull the fabric out of the drier.

For Fringed Throws
Reviewer: Janet

Got 3 colors of this double faced fabric for fringed throws (instructions on this site) for gifts. Loved making them! Easey peasey! But, the selvedges on this color were sufficiently messy that I didn't want them showing. I decided to fringe the selvedges to get rid of the problem. I liked the look even better than the others, so I fringed all 3 of my throws! ----- I've done a reasonable amount of sewing in my long life but haven't spent any time fringing. Got on Utube and can offer some helps. Biggest one is to cut between the fabric and selvedge to the depth of the fringe you want to make. Then you can fringe easily and pick out the short threads from the selv. afterwards. I like to pull a thread where I want my fringe to end, so I have an easy to see mark. For long lengths of fabric to fringe, I go about 3' along the area I want to fringe, put the point of my scissors in the spot I pulled the thread and cut to the edge of the fabric making shorter lengths of thread that need to be pulled out.
