This is a 19" wide twin to the 4C22 Rustic linen line.

Woven out of the same size thread and with the same thread density this IL084 is just woven to be narrow. That means less cutting time for you and you can get to the fun part of using your linen items sooner.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces a square yard this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

Yarn Dyed fabrics are made using threads that are dyed separately before being woven. This allows for a larger variety of patterns and designs that stand out from the base fabric color. Design created exclusively for F|S.

Narrow width cloth is great for:

  • Shopping bags
  • Purses
  • Placemats
  • Runners
  • Decorative pillows
  • Kitchen towels
  • Appliance covers
  • Potholders
  • Cushions

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Customer Questions and Answers

I'm getting ready to sew some kitchen towels with this linen. I am wondering whether it is best to cut off the selvedge and finish the sides, because sometimes heavier linen selvedges crumple up when washed and distort the fabric.

We've found the selvedges on this fabric will not crumple up or ripple when washed, so they can be left attached to the fabric.

Can this be used to make slipcovers?

It can be if it not considered a heavy use item. If it is then most customers will use the heavier linens which are 7.1 ounces or heavier.

For the IL084 on sale today, how much shrinkage should I expect in the length? I would like a finished length of 24" for my towels, but would like to hem them before washing. Your recommendation? Thanks, Ann

Ann • October 5, 2022

Based on the tutorial we have for the IL084 you would cut and hem them at 27" to account for the expected 10% shrinkage using our pre-wash recommendations that you will find listed in our help center.

Lovely Bluish Grey Stripe

We recently repainted and refreshed our kitchen. Naturally new dish towels were a part of that. This toweling is definitely a great color for modern decorating! Judith

The colors are bright on ivory heavy/rustic linen. I made several kitchen towels.

Anne • March 15, 2022

Love this linen! I finished the ends and embroidered monograms on both sides of the center. Make the centerpiece with a dough bowl and artificial flowers. This was a gift, and I like it so much I just ordered again to make something similar for my home...

Picture of the Gifts I made from this linen.

Not sure the photo does this pretty fabric justice. In person its very striking. I made it into Cocktail Napkins with a fringed edge and kitchen towels with a contrast solid on the bottom.
