Fabric By The Yard $5.56

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 utilitarian 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

My favorite kitchen towels!

Most of my kitchen towels are made from this fabric. These are absorbent, durable, and cute--I love the solid and the stripes equally. My son has swiped several for his own use because they are just indestructible--if I ever manage to stain one beyond recovery, I'll move it to the car washing supplies, and it will perform for more years there, I am certain. I would happily buy this in wider widths if it were available- it would make an excellent jacket.

Piece Of Work

Such a disappointment. I jumped on the bandwagon, pulled in by the romanticized presentation of 'rustic' linen. Yes, linen is a great fabric, however this fabric is a piece of work. I purchased 9 yards - 3 of 3 different patterns, happily thinking I'd home-make some gorgeous linen kitchen towel to give for Christmas. After the making and washing, I can sadly say that will not be happening. Yes, the fabric looks cute and I was so excited about the 'matchy' stripes. And yes, the fabric is rustic and sturdy. HOWEVER, even after 3 washings the towels come out of both washer and dryer with the fabric deeply contracted, tight, balled, bunched, shriveled....just look at the photo. In order to make these both presentable and functional, you have to wrestle with each towel, pulling and yanking them into some sort of rectangle. Then spend several minutes ironing each one. Only then are they somewhat agreeable. I'm not going to do that each time they are washed and I certainly wouldn't impose that on someone else giving them as a gift. Perhaps this fabric should be given the 'softened' treatment that some of the other linen fabrics are given. I don't know. I DO know that this has been an incredible waste of money and time.

I am sorry to hear that the towels are not working out as expected and will email you directly with additional suggestions/solutions that may work in achieving a more satisfactory result.

I made kitchen towels with this beautiful fabric. I enjoyed sewing them and after a few washes they will work out great.

Based on fabrics-store's instructions on making your own dish towels, I ordered 3 yards and made these lovely dish towels. Instead of cutting out 3 towels, I divided the 3 yards into 4 towels which better serves my needs. I also added hanging tabs. I really love these towels. Yes, I give them a quick iron but it's totally worth it to me to have real linen dish towels. The quality of the linen shows.
