This is a 19" wide canvas weight cloth.

Woven out of thick, short staple, linen thread - this fabric is made to scrunch up after the wash and dry. It shrinks about 18% on the weft of the fabric ( widthwise) and 16% of the warp of the fabric ( lengthwise). This gives it the needed density for home textiles.

At a canvas weight of 9.1 ounces a square yard this 100% linen is a fabulous utalitarian fabric that you will love for its simple rustic beauty and strength. Items made from this fabric will wear like iron and last decades.

Yarn Dyed fabrics are made using threads that are dyed separately before being woven. This allows for a large variety of patterns and designs that stand out from the base fabric color.

Narrow width cloth is great for:

  • Shopping bags
  • Purses
  • Placemats
  • Runners
  • Decorative pillows
  • Kitchen towels
  • Appliance covers
  • Potholders
  • Cushions

Leone profile image Lovely after washed
Reviewer: Leone

I ordered one yard of this in June 2029 in a doggie bag as my first purchase from his store and was very pleased with all aspects of the transaction. It shrunk from 38" long, 18" wide to 28" long, 12 1/2" wide. That was not a problem as they had told me the percentage it would shrink. I love the weight for a tea towel but determined it was a bit heavy for another purpose I had in mind. I have since ordered five other things from the store.

Carol profile image Very disappointing
Reviewer: Carol

The fabric looked lovely when I received it. I cut and serged the edges in preparation for hemming. I then washed and tried the pieces like I would in the future for cleaning. What a disappointment! The pieces were so wrinkled and waded up I will have to press then before hemming to hopefully make the pieces usable. Didn't plan to have to press or iron the finished products each time I washed and dried them

Tammy profile image Wavy Edges
Reviewer: Tammy

The edges (selvage) are very wavy. I laundered the fabric and ironed. Cut into pieces for dish towels and hemmed the raw edges. Wish I had read another reviewers comments and hemmed the selvage too. I am still using them as dish towels and really like the drying properties. They ARE a bit rough but after about 20 washes are softening. My husband doesn't care for the roughness but it doesn't bother me.

Mary profile image Hemmed Drying Towels
Reviewer: Mary

I am so happy with this canvas linen for drying towels. I had heard so many reviews about excess shrinkage, I washed them in hot and dried my yardage 3x. I like a finished look, so I trimmed the selvidge off and gave a small hem. Look at them! Finished, I washed them again in hot water and dried them. These are not ironed. They are so soft. That are a wedding gift to my daughter. Large: 35" long with 2.5" hem Regular: 28" long with 2" hem Bar towels: 16" long with 1" hem All: 11" wide with 1/2" seam

Susan profile image More durable than denim
Reviewer: Susan

I made an "envelope" for storing the porcelain grills from the BBQ for the winter. My next project with this fabric will be replacement cloth liners for my laundry hamper. I have a few kitchen towels I made from a previous purchase a few years ago. They are also the ones I use the most. They absorb moisture well and dry on the towel bar quickly enough to be ready for more by the next meal. It took about three weeks of washing and using to get all the stiffness out and now they are my favorites. It's kind of like a new pair of shoes that you need to "break them in", then you'll use them forever. I think if Levi Strauss knew of this fabric, his jeans would be linen not cotton denim.

Patricia profile image Just too harsh even after two washings and ironing for use as towels.
Reviewer: Patricia

I'm thinking I'll do throw pillow covers. I wish they would soften more because I love the look. They just won't work for hand towels.

Linda profile image Surprisingly useful
Reviewer: Linda

Sewing the dish towels was easy. I threw them in the washer and dryer with other dish towels and crossed my fingers. I was rather discouraged at the towel's appearance when they came out of the dryer. My husband laughed at my project which looked liked a 4 or 5 inch diameter ball of wrinkled fabric. I bravely carried them off to the ironing board and ironed and ironed. They came out looking nice and after the 1st washing and drying, I just stretch the corners and they straighten right out. I like them so much I am making 3 for a present for my daughter.

A profile image Sturdy heavyweight fabric
Reviewer: A

I ordered this fabric to use as kitchen towels. It is a bit stiff and coarse after several washings and I do not think I will continue to use them as such. They will be used as utility towels for scrubbing though. Maybe even as a middle layer between heavy weight fabric and used to make bath rugs. My sweetie thinks they would be good for exfoliating as well. Hmmmm may cut them down to smaller strips and use instead of loofah! They should last forever!

Teresa profile image Nice, Heavy Duty Cloth
Reviewer: Teresa

I bought this to make a quilted case for my computer. I wasn't paying attention and didn't realize that it was only 19 inches wide. Whoops! After washing in hot water and being tossed into the dryer, it feels heftier, but also shrank to 18" in width. It feels very durable. It will be great for my computer bag. This would also be perfect for dishcloths and grocery bags. I will be buying more at some point for those purposes. The color is pretty true to what shows up on my computer screen, except that the natural part is more oatmeal than grey.

Rustic linen stripe, unlined triangle sack, roomy and easy to carry. I washed and dried the fabric, then sewed it. A lot of lint came off in the washer, and dryer. I call it "Haysack" from the scent of summer hay in the fabric
