IL030 Gauze Bleached - 100% Linen - Very Light (2.8 oz/yd2)
Bleached color is achieved by "stripping" the natural pigment out of the fibers( just like you would with bleaching hair). What you are left with is a very soft shade that is just ever so slightly an off-white color.
Bleached is the basics of any project and loves being dyed. It is actually what we use to dye the colors. A truly versatile base and a must-have addition to your fabric repertoire.
The beautiful open weave texture of this linen gives it a light, airy opaque look, making it an excellent choice for apparel, intimate apparel, accessories, interior design projects and so much more. This cloth is 57 inches wide.

Customer Questions and Answers
I'm looking for light linen to line a linen dress. Would you recommend this weight or a little heavier?
You should take a look at our handkerchief linen IL020 it is a bit heavier than the Gauze IL030. Either one works for lining.
Does this fabric require any pre-treatment before an all-over, saturated dye?
We have several articles on our blog that will guide you on how to dye your linen - please refer to this link but usually a scour is what is normally done to pre-treat the linen before dying. blog.fabrics-store.com/?s=dye&amp;post_type=post
what patterns would you recommend for this linen?
Would this make good handkerchiefs? If not, what else would you recommend?
This is a gauze linen and although lightweight our customers tend to use a tightly woven lightweight linen such as IL020 for handkerchiefs.
What is the shrinkage rate of IL030 bleached . I have created a garment with your fabric and did not pre-wash and dry before hand. Please advise .
Using our recommended wash instructions you can expect a 7-10% shrinkage. Please visit our help center to view the recommended wash method as well as helpful articles on expected shrinkage. support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us
:::happy sigh::: I'm going to go completely blind embroidering this. :) It's so fine and even. I already have the silk threads to start. I thought that perhaps they would be too thin for the fabric. Not at all!
I think this linen is fairly durable for a gauze. It also dyes well.
This is the perfect fabric for our Florida weather! Lightweight and airy, it feels like a dream. The Shibori dye technique is so easy and colors do not need to be limited to the traditional indigo. The fabric arrived in an off-white shade. I first dyed it a shade of turquoise and then used the Shibori technique with a dark blue/indigo color. It's true this linen wrinkles more easily than a signature finish, but the wrinkles look great!
It's beautiful for sheer drapery panels.
Still enjoying my breezy white linen kimono I made with this. So great over tank tops on a hot summer day. Oh and had enough left to make the best cool half slip too. Way better than nylon on a hot day.
I redid my LR sheers using 15 yards of IL030 Bleached and I'm very pleased with the look. I divided it up into five 3 yard lengths. The single window is two lengths and the double window is three 3 yard lengths. Look how the fine weave filters the morning sun. I still have to hem them but I couldn't wait to see how they looked.
