IL085 Lemon is a Jacquard cloth created by weaving different color threads to create intricate patterns - or paintings woven with thread. This particular design carries a lemon pattern with asymmetrical borders as a modern take on a traditional design. The fact that the borders are uneven forces us to create harmony, to go a little beyond what we usually do. 
The engineering of this cloth allows the Jacquard to be read equally well from either side - you have a reversible fabric that changes its dominant color scheme depending on what side you pick.The bright colors are a continuation of the modern aesthetic allowing these items to be right at home in traditional as well as modern interiors. Design created exclusively for F|S 

IL085 is woven out of the same long-staple wet-combed 100% linen thread we use to weave everyone's favorite All-Purpose medium weight IL019. However, because it needed to be thicker for towels, it has a 16% higher thread count and therefore a heavier weight of 6.8 ounces a square yard.

This fabric is narrow at 20" wide with a finished selvage - this allows you to spend less time cutting and sewing and get to the fun part of using your items sooner. Because this cloth is woven using the same size thread with nearly an identical thread count for warp and weft - the fabric will have even shrinkage of 8% both for length and width. Shrinkage is based on a warm wash and low-heat dry.

This fabric is 100% linen ( flax) and has received rigorous Oeko-Tex certification ensuring that the items are biodegradable, recyclable, and free of harmful toxins or irritants.

Narrow width does take some creative adjusting.

Narrow cloth is perfect for:

  • Bags
  • Placemats and napkins
  • Runners
  • Decorative Pillows
  • Appliance Covers
  • Potholders
  • Aprons
  • and, of course, Kitchen Towels ( these will leave no lint on glass and are great for fine china and crystal)

Why is this gorgeous print not evenly printed?

Our designers chose to add asymmetrical borders to give this classic pattern a modern twist.

This can’t be right

I've studied textiles in school and worked with fabric both as a career and hobby for 50 years, and never have I experienced so much pilling and massive amounts of lint as I have from this jacquard linen. I'm on the 4th wash of "dish towels," which have yet to be used and I'm still picking off globs of matted lint. I placed one in a lingerie bag and the bag is covered in a thin layer of yellow lint with large clumps of lint collected in each inside corner of the bag. I spent $135 on yardage and shipping and can't think of any way I can use these towels. I certainly don't want them clogging up my machine filter any more than they already have. So disappointed.

So much lint

I neglected to note that the grey borders of this IL085 Lemons are asymmetrical, so that's on me. But after sewing 10 kitchen towels I've had to wash them 3 times and pick the lint off each one after every wash.. While the fabric softened nicely, the towels don't look new and I'm not comfortable giving these as gifts. So I now have 10 asymmetrical kitchen towels, which continue to give off lint. (IMHO) an important feature of a quality kitchen towel is being lint-free! I will say however, the lemon jacquard is very pretty.

Super fun print and lovely and absorbent for kitchen towels. I cut mine 30" long and they only shrunk to 27" long by 19" wide after a gentle warm wash and low machine dry. Keep the selvage on or hem, either way, looks nice in this fabric.
