POINSETTIA Linen's full-bodied richness can breathe passionate, fiery life into the colours around it, igniting in them an electrifying, energising heat. For American born painter R.B. Kitaj this colour became a symbol of rebellious defiance, a statement of unflinching strength and determination.

At 5.1 ounces this Open Weave 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).

Not soft

I bought this to make a caftan for my mom and it's essentially nice burlap. The red color is dark but you can still see through this because of the very loose weave. Washing didn't do anything to help make it softer or less see through it it did leave a fist full of lint in my washer and then threw fist fills of lint in my dryer. So unhappy with this purchase since the listing said it was appropriate for garments. It's only appropriate if you don't mind wearing burlap.

Poinsettia linen

I was disappointed with this . Very coarse and would not have made a good scarf. ,In fairness I have been happy with all the other linen I have purchased.

Zita profile image Soften with Essential Oils

IL041 isn't as rough as burlap and it's not as smooth as supima cotton. It falls somewhere in between. I washed is using a Frankincense and Myrrh laundry soap (not a detergent) by Indigo Wild. (I have no affiliation with the company!) This soap uses essential oils and softens the fabric. Plus, when a customer opens the box and unwraps a shawl, there's a faint scent of something magical.

Amy profile image Not what I expected

I've purchased quite a bit of linen from this site. All of it has been wonderful until this piece. Whilst the red color is very beautiful, the actual linen is very coarse and transparent. More like netting. Did not soften after washing and drying. NOT recommended for apparel. Would not purchase again.

Lorelei profile image Not as soft as I expected

The red is beautiful and I made a scarf from it using your instructions. It was far more coarse than I expected but that made the thread pulling easy. I expected it to tighten up after washing but it did not nor did it soften a lot. It is bulkier than I expected but if a bulky rustic look is desired, it is perfect!

Sewed this beach cover-up using the free Fabrics-Store pattern Antonia. Its winter for me right now, so it's working as a great throw over dress for a tee and leggings.

Stunning fabric and perfect for a beach cover-up, or something to throw over a tee and leggings. The fabric is smooth and drapey and has gotten softer with each wash.

My daughter is wearing a shawl I made with this Poinsettia linen. On each end, I added a wide band of an Australian Aboriginal print depicting the dancing Goddess Barnumbirr as Venus the Morning Star. The background of the print is red and plays beautifully against the Poinsettia linen. A person wouldn't have to know anything about the cosmic connection to appreciate the art of the print and the movement of the shawl.
