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.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Very nice fabric. Had to struggle not to just keep my 2 yards as a throw. But, as I bought the natural and the charcoal, I saved the natural as a throw and made a Haori inspired jacket from the charcoal. It is really nice to sew and the subtle ticks, where the two layers are attached, make cutting straight lines easier.

Haori inspired jacket from charcoal.

Love this double linen fabric. The color is deep with a rich sheen. The weight is perfect for my robe. Prewashed & dried brought a delightful soft hand & lovely depth. I look forward to the changes that wash & wear will bring this beauty!
