IL041 Open Weave Gray Sparrow Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.01 oz/yd2)
Linen is warm and embracing, folding and hiding secrets within. German
arte povera artist Joseph Beuys masterfully enveloped this slate grey
into his art, investing the rugged simplicity of humble, ordinary
materials with mystical, magical properties. Heaving weather beaten
slabs of rock, chalk-smeared blackboards and rolls of muffling felt into
complex arrangements, Beuys delved into the subtle, delicate and earthy
tonalities of grey, connecting us back to elemental forces at the root
of human survival.
At 5.1 ounces this Open Weave 57 inch wide linen has a unique slightly sheer look and feel that sets it apart from other medium weight linens. Open weave does not make it less durable or versatile, just loosely woven.
This linen should be laundered in a cold wash-tumble dried on air setting or very low heat--line dry if possible.
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
Color great despite my skepticism when ordering. Very pleased with fabric quality & Weight
I bought a yard to experiment and put this in with my regular wash and dried along with everything. It came out soft and lovely. Very excited to try the other open weave offerings.
I made 2 shawls out of 2 yards, and agree it is difficult to cut and to press, due to the open weave. Before washing it was far from perfect, but after washing it was wonderful. The lint was a problem in the washing machine as well. Don't wash it with anything else! I added one dish towel to the load, and the dish towel was loaded with lint when it came out, and so was the washing machine. I had to wipe it out with a dry towel. Drying was very quick (10 or 15 minutes), but I emptied the lint trap several times.
This is definitely one of the softer of all the linens I've ever worked with. It has wonderful movement and drape. It was a little difficult to cut because it has a tendency to stretch on account of the loose weave, but with a bit of mindfulness that can be avoided. It does produce a lot of lint. When I pre-washed it, it came out of the washer with little gobs of lint on it. I then dried it on gentle and when the cycle was 1/2 way done the lint trap was overflowing and I was amazed that it hadn't started a fire. I had to check it 2 more times before the cycle was done. Other than that, this is a wonderful fabric to work with.
Lovely dark color that drapes well and breathes exceptionally well due to the open weave. Used it to make a bedskirt; it covers the area under the bed well without running the risk of locking in moisture, and the texture is a lovely contrast to the smooth handkerchief linen duvet and IL019 Sedona throw pillow.
