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

Rustic beauty
Reviewer: Martha

Beautiful rustic look for placemats--I mixed and matched the various prints for 8 placements. Was going to give as gifts, but loved them too much myself!! DEFINITELY shrinks. Needs ironing after drying to barely damp stage. The selvedge does not tighten up as much in shrinking as the fabric so the edges again have a rustic not finely pressed look. Easy to work with.

Nicer than it looks online.
Reviewer: Marilyn

I bought a couple of 1/2 yard pieces of this from the Doggie Bag to make some dishcloths with. When I received it I was very impressed, it looked way better than it did online, now I am thinking I might want to make a grocery tote bag out of it instead. I bought a different color previously and made dishtowels and I love them. I would still like to get some more sometime to make placemats, it would be perfect for that purpose as well.

Love this stuff!
Reviewer: Norene

This fabric definitely shrinks and needs a good ironing after being washed, but it is beautiful. I love the heavyweight and rustic appearance balances with the linen hand.

Fun table linens
Reviewer: Beth

This is not particularly my cup of tea, but my mother-in-law was unhappy with her burlap placemats that refused to hold together. I immediately ordered this and the white stripe, and i think they should hold up very nicely for her. I just followed the tutorial, and three of my daughters (5,4,&2) were able to help pull strings to fringe them. Much more pleasant than working with burlap, and it should be the aesthetic my mother-in-law wanted.

Don’t love as kitchen towels
Reviewer: Lynne

I made kitchen towels for myself & as gifts. Personally I don't like them. They are not absorbent and very scratchy. After washing come out of the dryer in a ball of wrinkled mess. I have used for over a year now in hopes that they would soften & get better but these were a disappointment

Won't go back to cotton dish towels
Reviewer: Lesia

It shrunk as stated on website. No surprises there. I serged the raw edges first and then machine washed the fabric on hot and dried on hottest setting in clothes dryer. It wrinkled but not too bad, then steam ironed on hottest iron setting. I then cut my desired length for dish towels and finished the raw edges by serging, folding over 2x, then straight stitch. I am very please how they came out. The blue stripe towels appear shorter than the other towels in the picture hanging on the line and that is because I slipped up and cut that fabric piece into 4 towels vs. 3. No matter, still long enough to be useful. The fabric has such a nice rustic feel to it and they dry faster than the cotton towels. I am gifting most of the towels away, but keeping a few for myself! Very pleased with the hand of the fabric.

Love it
Reviewer: susan

I really love this fabric for dish towels. It is very textured and dense which I really like but some may not. Really great absorption and feels great on the hands.

Very rough!
Reviewer: Gail

Loved the color of this fabric, and reading the reviews I intended to make dish towels. I bought 8 yards. I cut one yard off and hemmed each end and washed it in hot water three times to soften it. It's still too rough like burlap and not usable as a dish towel. It also shrinks to 15 1/2 inches when laundered. Unfortunately because I cut one yard off the end, they won't except a return of the remaining 7 yards.

Il073 kitchen towels
Reviewer: Betty

This was my first buy for linen. I love these and will only use linen for certain things. I made my towels, then napkins from a cheaper navy blue linen from elsewhere, I won't buy cheaper again. These are great quality products at great prices. First run I got so many ideas to sew.

I made kitchen towels from this beautiful fabric. It was so easy to work with and they turned out great.

Handmade linen tote bag. Available on Etsy, shop name: Squirrelly Ging. Look for lots of other Fabrics-Store linen items there as well!

This Fabric has such a nice hand, a little rustic. The weight is just right for dish towels and I love the intense colors.

Posted by Lesia

I made three kitchen towels. They are absolutely lovely! They're heavy and absorbent and don't leave any lint on glasses. I will be making more soon!
