This is a turquoise and natural stipe linen with a wider outside stripe to provide a perfect border for narrow items.

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

Great color!
Reviewer: Jane

Well, love the fabric but I goofed! I washed it before I cut the placemats and runner... Now I have to iron it to get where I need to be for cutting and straightening... OOPS!

I'm sorry about the goof! I would highly recommend ironing while your linen is still a little damp to make the process smooth sailing from here on out. We hope you love your placemats and runner!

Greatest ever!
Reviewer: marybeth

I serge the cut edges, press them over once then over again and it makes a nice clean hem (about 1/4 in) with out having to measure. I tuck the small serger tail under then I sew. I have decided to bring these to friends' houses instead of wine as a gift when we are invited after covid.

I ordered turquoise to match my daughter in laws kitchen. I would not consider what I got to be even close to a turquoise. So disappointed!

You're right! It is addictive!
Reviewer: Anita

I love this fabric. I love the feel, the look of the towels I made for gifts and the way it smells. I soaked it in hot water twice & then washed & dried it. I washed it again after sewing to be sure all the unraveling was stopped, and when I pressed them with steam that beautiful fragrance of flax wafted up. Mmmm.

First, but not last dishtowels
Reviewer: Sandra

I made my first dish towels today, and am in love. They did shrink more than I expected, but that is okay. Width changed from 19.5" down to 15" (23% shrinkage) and length changed from 34.5" down to 28.5" (17% shrinkage). I had wondered if I could get 5 towels out of 4 yards of fabric, and based on these results, the answer is no. Even though washing transforms the material from stiff to drapey, the feel of the fabric is still relatively rough. I wonder how many washes it will take before it really softens up, but in the meantime am enjoying them immensely, and very excited about giving them as gifts. I know I will be making many more of these, and probably some shopping bags as well. I am sure they will wear like iron and last forever.

The potholder and one envelope pillow cover are made with 20-inch canvas linen. After washing and ironing, the linen was just right in width for a 14-inch pillow insert. The length is 28 inches plus extra for the flap.

A potholder I make with this Linen

I love these so much, I bought 6 more yards in different patterns so I have enough for Christmas gifts. It shrank more than I expected, but they are a great size and so absorbent!
