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 double-sided IL028, 62 inch wide 100% linen fabric. Design created exclusively for F|S.

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). Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

You will feel like a creative genius when you pull the fabric out of the drier.

Double-Sided cloth is perfect for:

  • Robes
  • Placemats and napkins
  • Decorative Pillows
  • Pants and skirts
  • Jackets
  • Curtains
  • Bedding
  • Bags
  • and, of course, Throws

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).

Customer Questions and Answers


Hello, Will you be restocking Linen IL028 in additional colors? I absolutely adore this fabric and keep hoping to see it return. It appears that you only have the orange color available (which I have already), and I'd love to see the other colors again. Thanks! Ginny

Gorgeous color, lovely texture

The colors are stunning, and the texture is lovely. My 12-year-old daughter used this to sew a robe for a gift, and she is now asking about getting more yardage to make more things.

This linen is fabulous. I pre-washed it and dried it fat on my dying rack. What a dream, hardly any shrinkage and I barely had to press it. I really didn't know what to expect. I got it from a grab-bag email. There was a 1 1/2 yards at such a great price $32.66, I knew I could do something with it. I made a simple pair of slacks using the Norma Jeans pattern by Flat felled the seams, rolled the cuffs. And there you go. I don't know if it's available in other colors but I'm going to see.

Kimono with quilted design. I've made several kimonos using this soft, cozy fabric. Love this color.
