Black and natural come together to give us 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 ( lengthwise).  You will feel like a creative genius when you pull the fabric out of the drier.

This is great fabric once washed. I found it a bit tricky to use as the weave is more open, so it frays quickly. But overall not as tough as non-linen fabrics that fray quickly. The black threads are not as prominent as the pictures show so this reads lighter overall than shown in the pics. But still lovely!
