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).

I created an account so I could write a review, but now there's no "submit a review" option showing. Anyway, I'm somewhat disappointed with the fabric. The weave is much coarser than I expected, with a great deal of chaff woven in with the fibers. Thread size is very inconsistent, leading to unevenness in the weave and areas of pilling. Because of the coarse weave, shrinkage was substantial (about 15%) with a warm wash. Unlike other toweling fabric I've gotten, the edges aren't hemmed, just raw selvedge (not shown in the product photos). Which is still noticeable and uneven after a wash. Given the discount price I payed - well, fair enough. But I won't be buying more at full price. And I'd love to find a source for higher quality linen for tea towels. suggestions welcome.

Under Fabric Care, you mention pre-washing and using care in mixing colors. Then the last sentence says don't launder again but Dry Clean. Are you saying I have to Dry Clean kitchen towels?

Margaret • November 7, 2022
Maureen  profile image F|S Team

That is in reference to if you are planing to mix (color block) 2 colors that may bleed into each other when sewn together we do not recommend washing them but dry cleaning to make sure there is no cross bleed. The kitchen towels do not need to be dry cleaned.

Maureen • November 7, 2022

Why is it so hard to locate the material to these towels? I would love to have the pattern to make theapron that someone made below.i do the search for MLT17 and still cannot find it

The best way too find any linen is to search by the group in this case putting IL084 into the search bar brings up all of the colors available in this group.

Lovely Fabric!

My purchase of IL084 977 Softened linen was perfect for sewing up dish towels for my friends. Nice colors, nice weight & sewed so easily. I finger pressed seams for sewing & used the steam iron for a finished press.

Loving my new linen tea towels! Fun and quick project too : )

Shauna • April 17, 2023

One of the small luxuries of life is having me-made rustic linen tea towels draped about in your kitchen. One on the counter underneath drying cups and bowls, one hanging on the stove handle to lift the hot pan off the stovetop, one tucked into your waistband, serving as an apron while you bake. When you touch them, it's a little reminder of how lovely life can be.

Sarah • April 4, 2023

Apron made from narrow ( very narrow!) linen toweling—- so narrow that I had to readjust and redesign several times to accommodate the limited width.,

LaVaughn • March 29, 2023

Dining chair cushions and matching napkins are wonderful from this earthy, sturdy fabric. They match perfectly in color and texture with the Remy Natural/ Blue Mirage, which I have also used in the dining area and kitchen. There is just a little bit of difference in the pattern of the stripes, so they don't clash at all in using them together.

Bonnie • March 10, 2023

I made 6 towels out of 4 yards (5 in pic, because one was being used). They're just for my own use, and I prefer them a bit smaller. After cutting them there was about 4 inches of fabric left, so I more than got my money's worth. This is what they look like after 3 washes. They are getting softer after each wash and have that lovely linen look.
