4C22 Rustic Bleached - 100% Linen Fabric - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2), Width 57"
Bleached color is achieved by "stripping" the natural pigment out of the fibers( 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.
Bleached is the basics of any project and loves being dyed. It is actually what we use to dye the colors. A truly versatile base and a must-have addition to your fabric repertoire.
At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

I bought this linen yesterday during your sale. I plan to dye 2 yds with onion skin and maybe avocados for the other 2 yds ( I am making a 1770's petticoat and short gown) My question is...do I need to scour the linen first, and if so, can I use Dawn and wash in my washer? Thanks!

I purchased this 4C22 Bleached linen over a year ago to make curtains for my bedroom. I am just now getting around to doing that. My question is do I need to wash and dry the fabric before making them? I was contemplating lining them so what fabric (cotton, blend,etc) should I use to do that. Thank you for your help, Ruth Sanders
If you are planning on laundering the curtains going forward, you would need to launder them to remove the shrinkage. Our launder instructions are posted in our help center. Customers have used cotton lawn, voile, lightweight linen or blackout for lining others prefer to not use any lining.
I bought this fabric to make a curtain for our bathroom. It was such a pleasure to work with. Sews nicely!
I cannot get enough of 4C22. Great for curtains, roman shades, bed coverlet and so many other home decor projects.
I am very happy with this linen. It has a quality feel to it, and I can't wait to work with it. I am choosing to make drapes, a Roman shade and a bed skirt.
I am using this linen to line my linen window treatments! At the heavier weight it adds a heft, and drape, that is truly luxurious! Thanks a million FS! I feel so blessed to have found your website, all those years, ago!
The review should have read...—better linen cannot be bought anywhere for this price.
I made this curtain for our bathroom, even though some think that glass isn't see-through. It was a simple design: I folded the fabric double, stitched it then turned it right side out and top-stitched in a color to match the 4C22 Lagoon tie. It lets light in without the blindingly bright eastern sunlight.
When I'm headed to my studio, I'm usually dressed like this. An oversized blouse, that is balanced with a fitted waist. In this case, I chose a linen skirt. This look is appropriate for almost any professional setting or meeting. If I want to add some more fun to it I'll add accessories as I did here. Accessorizing is a good trick to bring balance and attention to detail. If I add bangles, your eyes are drawn to my sleeves, same as a necklace draws the eyes to the neckline. Your pieces can be intentional.
