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

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.

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!

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

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

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

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.

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!
