IL020 Handkerchief Natural - 100% Linen Fabric - Light (3.7 oz/yd2), Width 58"
Natural is the earth made, not dyed, color of the flax plant once it is made 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.
At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 58 inch wide 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

Customer Questions and Answers
Is this fabric undyed?
Yes this is not a dyed linen.
I want to make pants to bring on a trip to a tropical climate. Is this light weight 3.5-4 oz linen too sheer or light for pants?
This fabric can be lovely for pants. We would usually recommend our IL019 medium weight fabric for light pants for higher durability as well.

IL020 NATURAL In this fabric what is the shrinkage in warm wash and dryer? Can I assume it is not preshrunk? I think the user is yes but want to make sure. Thank You!
Expected shrinkage is 7-10% based on a cool to warm water wash - low heat dry. The linen is not pre-shrink.
The IL020 weight and grace and is perfect for the gathered Jemma skirt from Fibre Mood..
I used this cool, thin linen for workout wear: 1) Unstructured shorts with elastic waist. 2) Loose, v-neck pullover top from "medical scrubs" pattern. It is my favorite outfit for 100 degree weather workouts. Dries fast. Nice color for reflecting sun, but doesn't show dirt like white does. Very pleased.
These sound wonderful!
This linen feels great. I wore linen for my museum job doing ‘livin'g history-18th century for over 20 years. I fell in live with the way it felt. Now retired, I am making modern adaptations of some of the things that were the most comfortable. I am thrilled that a former co-worker told me about this site. The reason I did not give this 5 stars is that the fabric was cut so crocked on the grain that I lost six inches.
I've looked for linen for a while. This is exactly what I wanted. The descriptions of the products great for helping decide which one to buy. This color will be part of a baby blanket. Can't wait to finish so I can wash and see how soft it will get!
I've received my first linen yardage and will be ordering more. This linen is for a Native American Women's Southern Cloth Dance Shawl. I'll post a photo when it's finished.
This time I chose a ruffle dress from AYOminipatterns. This dress can be worn in summer or winter. Linen fabric is perfect for this project. In the second version, the fabric is lightweight natural linen, I added embroidery in the front, I really love embroidery and have been adding it everywhere lately. You can use contrasting linen to achieve interesting and beautiful combinations.
