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

Lesia profile image 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.

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.

Gail profile image 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.

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.

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

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!
