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

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)

Too much lint

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.

Pillow covers for my outdoor living room

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.

Lori  profile image I made small bar towels to replace paper towels.

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!

Shades of summer

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.

This is it!

I have auditioned many fabrics in my kitchen and this is the one they reach for. The colors are vibrant and harmonious. The fabric is soft. I have other linen towels I really like but this is the one they don't dig past to get to something else.
