The Natural color thread in this fabric is the earth made color of flax when it has been retted and woven into thread. No dyes, no bleach. The only thing that impacts the color of the cloth from one production to the next ( if it is more beige or grey) is the amount of sunshine and rain that particular flax harvest had.

Bleached linen color thread is made by "stripping" the natural color out of flax ( just like you would with bleaching hair). What you are left with is a very soft shade that is just ever so slightly an off-white color.  

Mix Natural color is achieved with one bleached thread and one natural color thread interwoven together. As a result - you have a grey toned natural color that is a great compliment to all other colors.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

I made a jacket out of mixed natural softened a couple years ago. Will this fabric match the softened version? in color and texture? thanks

LEIGH • May 18, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

It's best to get a color sample. There will be variations in the color of the flax harvested and milled every season, so you may find there is subtle difference.

Would this grade of linen be good to reupholster a couch or would I need a different one?

amy • September 14, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

You can use this for some upholstery projects, but generally we recommend our 4C22 heavyweight for upholstery since it is thicker and stronger. Of course we encourage you to get samples so you can assess each fabrics suitability for your individual project.

Hello, What is the average of shrinkage on this fabric ? Thanks MC

Marie-Claude • December 18, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

This fabric doesn't have any of our finished applied to it, so it has approximately 10% shrinkage.

Which linen would you recommend for bed sheets? Do you have anything that comes in 120 inch width?

John • January 5, 2024
Lauren profile image F|S Team

Hello, we recommend our IL019 Medium weight Signature finish Linen for sheets. It is buttery soft and breathable. It comes as 59" wide fabric, and we have a free sheets pattern that provides sewing instructions and cutting layouts for all standard size bedding. Please let us know if you need any assistance.

Will you be getting the Mix Natural in the Softened version again?

Jennifer • October 4, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

We are hoping to get this back in stock as soon as we can, if you need that fabric soon, the Il019 mix natural without finish is the same fabric, and you can always add a pack of our softener to the wash for the same soft feeling.

Hi! This looks like a great choice for a table cloth and napkin project. Would the fabric shrink after washing? Just need to calculate the right length. Thanks!

Erin • April 16, 2024
Lauren profile image F|S Team

This fabric will shrink up to 10% on a warm/cool wash and low heat dry. And yes, this is a fabulous fabric for table cloths and napkins.

No our fabrics do not contain flame retardants and are tested to be free from over 100 harmful chemicals by OkeoTex.

Yes, this fabric is ideal for both of those garments.

BringYourOwnFluff profile image A Just Barely Off White Color

The color of this fabric is more of a barely off-white, less of a cream. Works for me! This linen, like all that I order from here is a nice quality, with a few slubs/loose threads here or there that I pull to the wrong side of the fabric with a small crochet hook. Not a big deal! Like all linens, this fabric gets much, much softer with machine washing and drying.

This along with the other two orders of linen were spot on for me. I have been doing Architecture and Interiors, commercial and residential for 40+ years. Finding this source for fabrics has been a real fun place to get fabrics for personal use as well... Cheers to the people that have helped me.

Fabrics are so easy to fold and manipulate that it was a joy to sew

The two Linen colors I've worked with IL019 MIX NATURAL and 4C22 GREY MIST Softened are lovely. Both fabrics are so easy to fold and manipulate that it was a joy to sew. I found the weight of the Linen perfect for making a soft toy, it allowed the filling to stay inside and I fell in love with the rustic look of the 4C22 GREY MIST Softened.

Loved working with this fabric. I made two duvet covers, pillowcases and fitted sheets for our new RV. That's a LOT of linen, more than 20yards, but it'll last a lifetime.

Helen's Closet Ashton Top Colorblock Hack from the blog in scraps of medium-weight fabrics-store linen. 'Natural' is the right shoulder, 'Lagoon' is the other shoulder. 'Folkstone Gray' is the bottom triangle, and 'Natural Mix' is the bottom square. You can see that the Natural Mix is nearly white, and just a few shades lighter than 'Natural'.

True Bias Emerson Pant in medium-weight natural mix linen.

BringYourOwnFluff • August 24, 2023

I graduated in architecture and after 10 years working on large scale projects, I became a mother and started sewing toys for my children. Through playing with natural materials and curious shapes, I wanted to reinforce their natural development, inspire curiosity and creativity. I wanted toys that enriched interaction and didn't overload their senses (or mine). Thus the small handmade brand mauvais marie was born. Now my children are 4 and 2 years old, they give opinions about new designs and make special requests and the fabric dolls are still great friends and are memory triggers for these first years of life.

Better shot showing the color and texture

Rosalind • December 8, 2020

When I ordered this fabric I thought it was the "softened" version but alas it was not. That said it was pretty soft just after one wash & dry, extremely easy to work with, and made the perfect wide-legged pull on pants (Simplicity S9110) for this sewing beginner. Recommended!
