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

Lori profile image Great tea towels
Reviewer: Lori

I've never had anything made from linen. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I made 3 tea towels from 3 yards of this linen. Very easy to sew and not hard to get the needle through. It took me awhile to get used to them and the scratchy feel. They are very absorbent and heavy which I find I love. They look amazing and I always look forward to using them everyday. The first few times I washed them they were super wrinkled up but after 8 or 9 washings they look great right out of the dryer and I don't bother with ironing.

Reviewer: Connie

I am hooked on linen. I am not a sewer but I started with linen vegetable bags, and now I am making kitchen towels. The black thin strip fabric is my favorite for kitchen towels. I have been gifting these towels and so far everyone loves them. I have found not all fabric shrinks the same, but that is the beauty of linen.

Reviewer: Dave

Perfect for the kitchen. Don't iron, don't need to. But, do hem before washing. Narrow width, as in towels. You'll love it!

Fabrics-store buyer profile image Nice kitchen towel fabric
Reviewer: Anonymous

I love the natural color with the black. It's very classy and less likely to look dingy later on. The smell when I opened the package was flax seed, which I found natural and wonderful. I pre-washed and dried and ironed once, then made the towels using the side selvedge, and washed, dried, and ironed again. In hindsight, I would cut the selvedge off and hem the sides (and I guess I can still do this!) because they're wavy and thin. My husband loves the texture, but I still feel it's a little scratchy, though I expect that will lessen with use and washing. The fabric is thinner than I expected but super absorbent. I gave it four stars instead of five because I found the ironing very difficult. I took them out of the dryer while they were still damp and still had to iron with a lot of pressure and high heat.

Enjoyed making a cover for my snappy new stand mixer. Tricky shape. Used french seams and fringed the bottom. So soft after washing the linen.

Enjoyed making a mixer cover that matches kitchen and towels. It was a tricky shape, french seam edges, fringed bottom. Love the softness after washing it.

Ivy profile image Great kitchen towels
Reviewer: Ivy

Sorry for dissing the idea of making kitchen towels from this fabric. Now I'm obsessed with doing just that. I've refined my process and I'm bugging friends and family to pay for fabric for me to make into towels for them. They are amazingly absorbent, my favorite towels to wipe my hands on by far. The black stripe is very elegant. I've read mention of smells, and this piece did smell a little but not offensively. It smelled like hay, really, and I'm sure it will fade with washings.

Kristine profile image Really nice placemats
Reviewer: Kristine

I got this fabric for placemats to go in my newly renovated eat-in kitchen. They are great! I washed the fabric in hot water and machine dried it a couple of times, and there was minimal shrinkage. My cabinet designer came to take photos of the new kitchen when I had this fabric out for cutting, and she was so impressed with the quality and colors. I will be using the wide stripe for towels. I love the coordinating fabrics for this!

Kitchen towels and scrubby dishcloths made for son's college dorm shared kitchenette. Perfectly sturdy and tough enough to survive college life w/4 roommates. Wish Fabrics-Store would offer this particular stripe pattern again, and in other colors!! Love this linen.

One of three beautiful linen towels I made. I'm thinking of trimming and hemming the sides.
