Fabric care

 

Soft and light and a dream for chemises
Reviewer: Margareta
I had not bought this weight of linen before but was tempted by the discount. All of my chemises are made of cotton voile and this is sometimes not the right look for the style of my outer garments so I thought I would try this product. I have yet to make a chemise and and veil out of it but I showed the fabric to friends of mine who think it will be perfect and like it very much. I love linen because it wicks away moisture and feels lovely on. I am sure this weight will do the job I have planned for it.
 
Love this linen!
Reviewer: Anonymous
Great for summer scarves, shawls and summer curtains. Irons nicely, sews nicely and wears beautifully as a scarf.
 
Hated This fabric, Not historically accurate
Reviewer: Simone
I make Smocks to have for years, I have other linens that are see through, this is cheese cloth,DO NOT USE THIS for SCA or Faire clothing, you will regret it, it is not sturdy! It is not the tight weave needed for Smocks. The 3.5 is more like what you need for Smocks/Camisa/Hemds in period. I love the 5.3 for making my SCA tourney garb. This I use to make cheese with, I purchased it, when I thought it would make nice shirts for my sons. It has made many of my cooking things work.
 
Perfect for 14th Century shift
Reviewer: Carolyn
Wonderfully light and airy for making a very thin shift/skin layer for under my 14th century dresses. Breathes, wicks sweat, and and is thin enough it doesn´t affect the fit of the main garments.
 
Really awful
Reviewer: Deborah
This fabric is made of such short threads that after 6 months and hundreds of washings it is STILL full of pills and lint. If you can make something that will never ever ever ever be washed, go for it. Otherwise, run far far away.
 
Ella
Reviewer: Mirela
I´ve made curtains out of this and adore them! The weave is loose and see through when looking outside, but looking from the outside in, it offers privacy. Just amazing for curtains!
 
Lovely if it ever stops fuzzing
Reviewer: Jean
IL030: I really want to love this linen. After 4 pre-washes and and a mountain of lint each time, the fabric is a lovely, soft, airy dream... but the lint flying everywhere is a nightmare. I order many times from here. I haven´t had this problem with other fabric-store linen.
 
Lovely for Chemises!
Reviewer: Kathryn
This is one of my favorites for a next-to-skin layer. A couple of notes: 1) line your necklines to improve length of wear. 2) If you´re worried about the wobbliness of this fabric, pre-wash and then iron/starch it for cutting and sewing. It made a HUGE difference for me!
 
IL30-Gauze
Reviewer: Bonnie
I used this for 16th c. chemises. Very light and comfortable for Florida weather, and kinda sexy. I had to line neck pieces and cuffs.
 
Would this work for cafe curtains?
Reviewer: Barbara
Does anyone think this would work for cafe curtains? Or can you suggest something that will? Thanks
 
Soft, beautiful, breezy!
Reviewer: Kate
I purchased this IL030 linen to make some sun-guards for my tent, to keep the people under the shadefly from the sun. The fabric breathes and moves easily, and takes MX dyes fantastically. The weave is very loose and see-through, perfect for my gauzy draping. I highly recommend!
 
Lingerie, Heirloom sewing
Reviewer: Patricia
This fabric is absolutely sublime. I make hand and machine sewn lingerie and heirloom baby clothing. This light, airy linen is perfect for embroidery, tiny pin tucks, smocking, shadow embroidery. I dyed some a very pale sky blue, and found that it is made for dyeing, too. I just love it. I wish I could have 1,000 yards of it! I recommend this fabric highly. My next project will be an heirloom blouse for myself.
 
Beautifully soft and drapes well
Reviewer: Janet
I wanted Linen to make scarves from, and this Linen was perfect for the project I had in mind. As it was a scarf and I did not have to worry about size I hemmed it first then washed and dried it. It softened beautifully. I then went through the process of tray dyeing it and I loved the outcome. I have never had any Linen from this site that I did not like and the price is very good even with the shipping to Australia.
 
Colonial neck scarf
Reviewer: Ann
I used this material for a Colonial women´s cap and neck scarf and it drapes wonderfully for a neck scarf. I discovered by trial and error that this is the best weight for the scarf.
 
Very lightweight
Reviewer: Raquel
I made an italian camisia with this linen. It is almost like cheesecloth, and not a very tight weave. I would defintely purchase a swatch before buying to make sure it´s right for your project. It is heavenly soft and light, like a feather. YOU MUST FINISH THE EDGES OF THE LINEN COMPLETELY BEFORE WASHING. Otherwise it will fuzz itself all over the fabric, and never be able to be picked off completely. It´s a nightmare.
 
Kaftan
Reviewer: Isabella
Michelle or others - do you think i could use this linen for a kaftan?
 
Wonderful lightweight linen
Reviewer: Michelle
I used this lightweight, gauzy linen to make a mobcap and fichu for a costume. The items were nearly weightless and did not make me hot, as I had feared they might. I used YLI Heirloom thread in white, size 100 to hand-hem the items, and the stitches are really invisible. This would be a great fabric to combine with laces for collars, cuffs, and baby items. It would also be very effective for ruffles.
 

   

The headwrap is in IL030, embroidered with DMC floss. It's lovely stuff, feels good, and handles nicely! After the initial hot-wash-hot-dry, I've just handwashed it when needed, and it dries far more quickly than the cotton gauze ever did. I plan to get more for shifts under gowns.

Authentic SCA Romantic Sheer Linen Chemise I loved this fabric the moment I saw it. It made a perfect combination of texture and old world wrinkles for this chemise. My clients love it too. I sewed the piece first, and then washed it and twisted it to dry flat on a towel. The result was magical.
