Not bad but not great
Reviewer: Ivory

This fabric requires a fair amount of processing in order for it to be usable. I washed it in extremely hot water and high heat cycles twice to soften the fabric which is very stiff at first. It will lose a lot of fibers in the process and shrink as is expected, After that, there's a a lot of piling left on the fabric that you'll need a traditional lint brush (not a lint roller) to remove. And finally you will need to stream press the fabric to remove all of the wrinkles and remaining stiffness. After all of that, you will have very soft linen albeit still a bit slubby. This isn't fine linen by any means but it is light in weight. I wouldn't recommend it for a historical costume outer garment, but it's fine for an under petticoat or modern baby clothing,

The softest and most gorgeous linen thus far I have purchased from Fabrics-Store.

I plan to handcraft caps for the Religious and also for other occasions. #handcraftedhabitry
