IL041 Open Weave Poinsettia Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.01 oz/yd2)
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
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
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.
Hello, We're sorry you didn't enjoy this fabric. Being an 'Open Weave' fabric, this means the fabric is designed to be loosely woven or 'open' so it will be see-through. As to the softness, this fabric has a softener applied to it and will soften with repeated washing and wearing when following our recommended washing instructions. Please look out for an email from us, we'd like to make this right.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
