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

Customer Questions and Answers


Wondering if Robin would share where she found her pattern for the fabulous orange grocery/shopping bags she made... I would love to make the exact same ones. If it isn't a pattern but something she "made up" herself, would she share the dimensions and is there a bottom flat piece that folds up inside? Thank you!

I'm sorry it took me so long to see this post. I have written up instructions for the canvas shopping bags I made. It's my first attempt at writing a pattern, so I hope it makes sense. Here's the link to the pattern.

I love this fabric. But a word of caution, I found it to shrink about 25% on the left & 20% on the warp. Still a great fabric & I will buy more

A pretty, rugged workhorse in the kitchen

I made kitchen towels with this. The more you use and wash them, the better. Beware of shrinkage and they do require ironing to straighten out after being washed. I started making bigger pieces and use them to line top of the granite countertop in certain areas to protect it from being hit and scratched. The color is cheerful, very pretty. I've bought several rounds of this fabric and made towels for friends as gifts. They all love it.

Fall color is great.

I made a table runner for fall. I loved the color but found it harder to work with. Very crinkled after washing but was able to iron. I think I will try making some dish cloths and dish towels??

Lots of shrinkage

Purchased 1.5 yards to make 2 dish towels. Size before washing —. 19.5 by 26 inches. After one warm wash — 15 by 21.5. Shrinkage resulted in lots of surface texture; in hand weaving we call this tracking. Makes for a finished cloth with lots of character!
