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)

I am making placemats and napkins with this. Is it best to cut the fabric, (allowing 8% for shrinkage) before or after washing? I've also decided to make a lining, on reverse side using your standard heavy weight linen. How much shrinkage should I expect?

Hello, We highly recommend pre-washing your fabrics prior to sewing. The 4C22 can shrink approximately 7% on the length. pre-washing will ensure that your fabrics won't shrink after you've sewn them up.

Jeannette profile image I think this fabric is great!

I do not think this fabric looks or feels cheap--in fact, a lot of lint means good linen in my opinion. It is a beautiful color of orange and really brightens up the kitchen on a dim winter day.

poor quality

This is the first time I have been disappointed with the linen I have purchased from F/S. The general quality is poor. I had to pull threads to true the fabric. (One pull I lost 2 inches!) The amount of lint!!! (7 washings!) (The heavy weight jacquard I have purchased only needed five...) The completed towels look like they are made of cheap fabric.

jacquard linen

I too, was amazed at the amt of lint generated by this linen. I bought enough to make 6 towels and was disappointed in the flimsy quality of the fabric. The colors are beautiful, but , when compared with the linen I had purchased previously, the fabric is thin and not nearly as nice.

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.

It's a winner

This wonderful fabric is perfect for my friend who loves linen and the color orange. After washing, it was a breeze to hem the two cut sides. I really like the pattern; it's more orange on one side, and more yellow on the reverse. The colors will surely brighten up any grey day. The fabric came out of the wash soft and vastly more interesting than any basic cotton kitchen towel. I'm very pleased and guess my friend will be too. Thank you, Fabrics Store!

Happy Thanksgiving. I love this fabric. It makes a cheerful runner. I also made a tea towel. After hemming, I washed it warm and found no shrinkage in the width of the fabric.

The navel orange Jacquard dish towel just lights up the kitchen!

Jeannette • October 15, 2022

I made these napkins out of your navel orange Jacquard linen for my son's birthday. He and his wife are excellent cooks and love to entertain. They love them! The hardest thing about this fabric was cutting it, it's so lovely.
