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 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

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.

Great Christmas gifts!

I ordered several yards for gifts, but realize that I deserve some nice tea towels too. Ordering more today. Love the quality!

True to form, linen

I made towels using this fabric, however, it wrinkles terribly after washing which is expected from linen. I wish there was a way to keep flatter without ironing. I feel like I have returned to the dark ages when I have to iron towels.

Hi! I also don't like ironing :) Take the towels out while slightly damp, stretch them out by hand, and air dry. They will dry flat enough to fold and re-use without needing the ironing board.

Love it.

I used 6 yards to make 5 kitchen towels in a size I like, 4 smaller-sized towels specifically for my face and had enough left for 3 smallish dinner napkins. I'm very happy with these. I think I need to get some more for more dinner napkins.

Wonderful Kitchen Towels

I purchased this fabric for making kitchen towels. They turned out wonderful, so pleased that I ordered more for additional towels and to make as gifts for Christmas.

Kitchen towels

I purchased 10 yards and made 12 kitchen towels. The fabric is very easy to cut and sew .Next it's the heavier stuff for some placemats. I'm loving it!

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.

Great kitchen tiwels

Using the rustic linen to make the Allspice Apron from hey June handmade in a size XS. A fun and fast project

Barbara • January 10, 2022

This fabric makes wonderful placemats, kitchen and tea towels, as well as an excellent wrapping for refrigerating fresh herbs, sprouts and vegetables. The napkins are made from IL019 Natural,18 inches square. I love that the width of the IL084 is 18" wide, so only one hem on each end is necessary, no matter what the length will be. I have made other kitchen items from the same fabric in different colors. Handy, sturdy and beautiful!
