Customer Questions and Answers
The product description doesn't do justice to this fabric. When my package arrived I serged the cut ends together and put this through the washer & dryer twice (hot water/heavy duty cycle, high heat). The transformation was amazing! The lint was as well - be sure to clean your dryer's lint trap midway through the dry cycle. Today I'll be pressing the fabric and cutting a kimono-style robe using the guide from the 9/20/21 email. I plan to add belt loops made from scraps of other fabric at the point where the underarm seams meet the body.
Made a wonderful throw by fringing about 1.5" on both cut ends and washing/drying. No need to iron, it puckers up beautifully on both sides. The orange is more neon than persimmon, so order a swatch if you are unsure.
I followed the nsteuctuins for making a big throw with this fabric and I love it! The fabric was easy to fringe a nd when washed the fringe curled up just th way I wanted and the fabric became puffy and soft. It's warm and looks wonderful on my couch. Would make a wonderful pashmina type shawl as well.
I paired this fabric with a medium weight linen and made a reversible dress cut on the bias. I've made similar dresses with F/S linens of different weights without any problems. However this time, even though both sides of the dress are the same length, the side with this fabric is more than an inch longer in the center when it is on a hanger. I don't always iron my linens after washing, but this fabric must be ironed because it comes out of the washer not just wrinkled but lumpy. The orange side of the fabric is quite intense, but the beige side with the bright orange peeking through is lovely.
Hi - sorry you have to iron this one to get it even. It's doing that because it is a double layered fabric joined together every centimeter by a hooked thread. So the two cloths will dry and "frump up" in between where they are joined once washed. Ironing gets the cloths flattened to where they "un-frump". Some Jacquards and double cloth yarn-dyes will get like that.
While all the other colors in this IL028 line are more on the neutral side this color is anything but! When I first got it and removed it from the package I was perplexed...it had been folded with the natural side out and my first thought was, "my goodness, it's not nearly as intense as I expected". Then I unfolded it and was blown away by the intensity of the orange color! It is a very strong orange-red and the only 'thing' that I can liken it to is the color of a bougainvillea flower, though not at all 'pink'. The natural side is really lovely with the fiery orange-red peeking through the somewhat open weave of the natural threads...very striking! If you like a linen with presence and power then this is it. Or you may prefer, as I do, the subtlety of the natural side with it's more subdued hint of orange color. The layered effect is really quite intriguing. Hmmm...now, how to use it? I'm thinking another throw for my Arizona room (that's a sunroom for you Northerners).
Kimono-style robe made using the guide in the F|S 9/20/21 email. I started with a 3-yard doggie bag cut. Washed/dried twice on hot/hot, pressed while damp. I measured a full yard from the rough end and turned that into a bath towel. I hate to waste a pretty selvedge so incorporated the selvedge as a design element anywhere I could - the "hem" of one sleeve, the edge of one side of the skirt opening, and as a decorative edge on the sash. The "dots" where the two layers of fabric are exchanged during weaving make excellent guides to mark cutting lines and hems! The kimono robe was a fast and easy project for this novice seamstress.
