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

Fabrics-store buyer profile image THE perfect towel!
Reviewer: Anonymous

I'm giving sets of this towels to several kitchens this holiday season. Rather than twill tape, I made a generous buttonhole on the long side for hanging the towel.

Reviewer: Marylou

The linen was easy to cut and finish for three towels and they looked great until I washed them. Now they are a wrinkly mess which means that I will have to iron them. I generally do not have to iron my dish towels which are cotton. Maybe I should have line dried them.

Michelle profile image Don't be too quick to judge this linen.
Reviewer: Michelle

I love these for kitchen towels. They do take a while to soften up but they are still very enjoyable to use. It also works great for pot holders with a layer of cotton batting. For dishtowels, I get a lighter weight plain fabric.

Ginette profile image Too stiff!
Reviewer: Ginette

Wanted linen for drying dishes but this fabric is still too stiff after more than 7 washings . I will continue to wash in hopes the stiffness will disappear. However I was expecting the shrinking.

Teresa profile image Great for Towelling
Reviewer: Teresa

I was happy to see ths back in stock. I had bought some awhile back to make kitchen towels out of and loved it. This is very heavyweight and highly textured after washing.

Reviewer: Merrideth

this is narrow width for which I was not aware. planned to use it for clothing. not wide enough for any useful clothing. wrinkles terribly and iron will not take out the wrinkles even with steam pressing machine.

I only ordered a yard to see what could be done with narrow width. Feels great, and smells of straw. Shrinks a lot - 24\" width down to about 18\". All kinds of things! Great for totes and backpacks, and the width is perfect for rectangle-and-gore patterns such as basic tunics and coats. Softer than denim, but if you could make it out of denim, you could make it of this (within constraints of width). I used my yard to make a shopping bag, sewing side seams on the slevidges, heming the bag opening (I added leather stays inside the hem to make access easier), defining the vertical corners with a simple ridge bead (not sure what the sewers' name for this feature is), and adding suede handles. I like this fabric so much that I asked F-S to add solid colors and a mid-weight version.

I love these towels. For those unhappy folks, the first wash and dry will shrink the towel and, yes, leave them balled up and wrinkled. Iron with steam. Next washing or two, hang to dry. As the linen softens with use and laundering, it will finish beautifully from the dryer.
