This linen is a heavier rustic natural that comes in one solid and various colored stripe patterns, narrow in width for specialty projects such as placemats, napkins, table runners, bath towels, bath and kitchen accessories even apparel and so much more. Close up image shows fabric texture and shrinkage after a wash. 

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

Kim profile image Great for Crafting
Reviewer: Kim

I am using this for making table runner, placemats, hats, outdoor indoor decorative pillow covers and shopping bags. Nice color, rougher fabric, lots of body stiffness. This would be nice for all sorts of crafting and home decor. Will post once I complete a few items.

Ivy profile image I revise my previous review
Reviewer: Ivy

I made some kitchen towels after all, 6 from 2 yards. They've now been washed three times, and they are not bad at all. They're different, some might say scratchy, but I like linen texture a lot, and I prefer wiping my wet hands on these than on the much softer towels I made out of some red gingham (that doesn't seem to be available anymore) a while back.

Ivy profile image Great for kitchen towels?
Reviewer: Ivy

I'll do something with it but I don't see how it can be kitchen towels. I've washed it twice and it's still very stiff and wrinkly and not like any kitchen towels I've ever made or used. I don't plan on making any towels I'll have to iron. And ironing does not add to absorbency.

Deborah  profile image Great for kitchen towels
Reviewer: Deborah

This linen is wonderful for kitchen towels. I not only use them for wiping my hands, but also use them to wipe my counter tops. They dry quickly and I have never worried about stains because everything seems to wash right out of them. I bought several yards, when it was on sale, and made a bunch of dish towels for myself and some to give for a Christmas/wedding present for my nephew and his new wife. When the other women in my family saw the dish towels, they wanted some too. I ended up giving all of then away and now I have none! I need to make more for myself. I plan on keeping 3 out and hiding the rest from my family. I know if I don't, that they will disappear too. LOL

Dolly profile image Interesting smell...
Reviewer: Dolly

Made this into a table runner and couldn't believe the smell. I'm wondering if its flax or hemp. It absolutely must be ironed, but it turned out fine.

IL073 846 BROWN THIN STRIP    100% Linen Canvas (9.1 oz/yd<sup>2</sup>)

Made a few sets of hand towels as Christmas gifts. I thought they were ok(a little rough) and definitely need to be ironed every time they are laundered. The recipients of these towels RAVED about them then and still now! I guess I will be making more for other friends. I just don't like the necessity to iron at each washing but this is a lovely fabric!
