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.

I ordered the Dune-Natural and made three throws to give as Christmas gifts. I hope that the other color combos come back into stock. I would love a throw of my own.

Soft and Drapy
Reviewer: Sandra

Beautiful fabric, so soft and drapy. I bought a doggy bag to see what it was like, and can't wait to buy more. I managed to make an Agustina top by using some IL019 for parts of it. I'm looking forward to making another one made totally out of this.

Gorgeous
Reviewer: Barbara

This is a gorgeous, high-quality fabric. I bought 3 yards to make a large throw that completely covers our newly reupholstered sofa to protect it from cats and kids. I left the selvages and fringed the ends as per instructions in a recent email from the Fabric Store. The combination of the two natural shades is classic and classy.

Soft and cuddly
Reviewer: Laurel

I usually come up with interesting ways to sew the linen I buy, but this linen I just want to hem and use as a cuddly throw. It's beautiful fabric, and I'm not surprised at the cost. I hope they continue to make this one!

I'm finishing up the baby blanket for my new grandson with a needle and thread. It's very relaxing, and this beautiful soft fabric is the perfect weight for a newborn after several washings I don't want to part with it so will have to buy some more to make a throw for myself, perhaps another color. (I wish they still had the navy color)
