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

Not Happy With the 9.1 oz Weight
Reviewer: Fanne

While the weight of these seems really nice, it takes way too much effort to get them to the point where I could actually sew them up into dish towels. The puckering of the fabric does reduce. Someone at the office suggested that I use fabric softener to get them to behave, but I am not going to use it. I am going to stick with the 7.1 oz weight. Also, I like to miter the corners, and the 9.1 weight is just too heavy to do that. In the end, I love the 7.1 oz even though I find the natural color to be much darker than it shows on the monitor.

Reviewer: Mary

I bought this to make dish towels. I find it very stiff and comes out of the dryer softer but still very stiff and definitely needs to be ironed. With the 7oz weight I can smooth them with my hand and they look fine. I'm still going to use them for dish towels, but I'll use the 7oz in the future. I think they'll be more durable than the lighter weight however. Still love linen!

dish towel
Reviewer: Kit

I've made several dish towels with this fabric and absolutely love it! I find them to be very absorbent. I added some embroidery to these.

Reviewer: Tracy

I immediately loved the fabric when I unwrapped the packaging. I threw it in the wash and it softened beautifully. Very true to the pictures online!

Love it
Reviewer: Grace

I made dish towels and love the organic look and high absorbency (do not use fabric softener, it won't absorb as well) . It is thick and little stiff but works perfect. Used it many times and no mildew smell.

Still on the linen learning curve
Reviewer: Lori

After washing this extremely stiff and rough piece of fabric it came out of the dryer quite the same - I don't know if I want to use it for dish towels or not - doesn't seem like it will absorb water. I am learning the weights of the linen fabrics are the indicator of softness. Oh well lesson learned!

I want a set in every color!

I made a very simple table runner. I fringed the top and bottom and left the salvage.
