IL085 Narrow Width Navel Orange Blue Jay Mlt-14 - 100% Linen - Medium (6.8 oz/yd2)
IL085 Navel Orange is a Jacquard cloth created by weaving different color threads to create intricate patterns - or paintings woven with thread. This particular design carries a pattern of oranges, leaves, and blossoms surrounded by symmetrical borders.
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 add a modern aesthetic to this classical pattern allowing items made from this cloth to be right at home in traditional as well as modern interiors. Design created exclusively for F|S
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
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:
- Placemats and napkins
- Decorative Pillows
- Appliance Covers
- and, of course, Kitchen Towels ( these will leave no lint on glass and are great for fine china and crystal)

Customer Questions and Answers
The pictures of the finished dish towels show a horizontal border. How often does that repeat? I don't see it in the description or the image of the fabric. Thank you.
This group only has the border running vertically on both sides. The way to the picture was taken and the item is folded does make it look like there is horizontal border, but for this group the border is only on the selvedges.
This is the first time I have been disappointed with the linen I have purchased from F/S. The general quality is poor. I had to pull threads to true the fabric. (One pull I lost 2 inches!) The amount of lint!!! (7 wash/damp dry!) (The heavy weight jacquard I have purchased only needed five...) Salvages that were frayed. Between the three colors offered I purchased 12 yards. I have wasted my time and money and now I have Christmas gifts that I am embarrassed to give.
I am sorry that you were disappointed with your linen purchase from us. I will contact you directly to see what can be done to turn this project around for you.
I can't believe no one else has mentioned the amount of lint that is generated by this fabric when washed. Far worse than any other fabric I've purchased here. Clumps of lint remain in the washing machine, and big clumps of lint attach to the fabric as well. I washed and machine dried the fabric three times, and it was still covered with lint.
I can't bear the thought of them in the kitchen - this fabric is perfect for pillow covers for my outdoor living room. Easy to coordinate with other colors of different weights for this room as well. Stunning fabric.
After washing and drying to pre shrink I cut this narrow fabric every 10" and used a four thread overlock stitch to finish the edges. I just keep a stack on my kitchen counter for quick access while cooking and cleaning. They are pretty little towels!
Although I haven't open the package yet, I'm looking forward to making some towels from this to sheer up my powder room. There are several projects to finish first.
The linen was easy to work with. If any criticism at all, would be nice to have a design that is somewhat centered for folding in thirds to be able to hang nicely. 3yds for 4 kitchen linen. I'm very happy with the way they turned out, however, have not washed yet. When I do, I will wash in cold water and hang almost dry before pressing. They are for a Guesthouse.
This is the amount of lint out of the lint trap from 8 yards of fabric (hand used for scale of lint ball :) The washing machine used is a front loading washer, with regular wash cycle on warm water; followed with regular dry cycle on low heat. No lint was left over in the drum of the washing machine and that was the only lint from the drier. Linen is a natural fiber that does lint and the more agitation the cloth undergoes in the wash/dry - the more lint it will produce. Top loading washing machines tend to be more aggressive as are certain wash settings ( like for bedding or towels). Rougher washes/dries cause more fiber agitation and damage the linen thread which shows up as extra lint that was basically beaten out of the fabric. Using a gentle cycle like Delicates or low tumble will prevent the cloth from excessive agitation and reduce linting.
