IL087 French Ticking Normandy Natural/white/cobalt Mlt-2 Fs Premier Finish - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (6.8 oz/yd2), Width 59"
A visual reproduction of French Ticking that combines classic design elements with a modern color palette and pays homage to the exquisite example of textile manufacturing.
Using a more modern color palette allowed us to coordinate them with several of our most popular solid colors already available in our linen collection. This cloth is woven in the Natural, White, Dark Blue color way. Just look for the matching color names in solid colors, and you will have a shade match to the Ticking.
IL087 Normandy is a 59 inch wide, 100% linen fabric constructed using long-staple wet combed linen with 32% higher density than our All-Purpose medium weight linen. This fabric has the thickness needed in interior design and to last for ages.
Our design team replicated the unique elements of the French Ticking fabric, a tight herringbone weave and yarn-dyed threads, to bring you an authentic but updated version of the time-honored original.
The dyes we used for the threads make the fabric colorfast and the bold stripe patterns will not bleed onto your main cloth allowing for at-home laundering without issue.
The dyeing of the yarns before weaving the design allowed us to create a vivid contrast of the stripes to the background color and the patterns will retain their true shade, unlike the imitation ticking that uses print to apply the designs.
Normandy collection is a must-have fabric to create French Interiors allowing you to replicate not just the structural architecture but to carry the style throughout the soft interior touches. This fabric design adds soft visual breaks to cottage-style interiors and softens ascetic designs. Design created and available exclusively at F|S.
The Premier Finish undergoes a two-step process to give the cloth a luxurious, supple feel right out of the box.
First, we apply a softener to give the fabric a silkier surface. Then, strong blasts of air are blown into the woven cloth. This beats up the fibers to make them softer and mimics the fiber bending process that the fabric undergoes when you've used it a lot.
This finishing process gives the fabric a much softer and more luxurious hand. It will be less prone to deep creases and have less linting. Shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration based on the fabric type ( thread size, count, weave type).

Customer Questions and Answers
Hello, I am thinking of using this fabric to sew a table cloth. Will it drape well and be stiff enough to stay in place? Will it get too soft after I wash it? Thank you.
Yes, this fabric drapes well and is perfect for table cloths. Being 100% linen it will also soften with washing.
Would this fabric work for napkins?
I've sewn with this fabric and think it would be too heavy and rough for napkins.
Yes, you can use this fabric for napkins.
Hi!When I am calculating my yardage needed to make a table runner, should I multiply that total yardage by the estimated shrinkage? (I plan to buy a little extra beyond that to try to ensure I'll have enough.) Thank you!
Yes, you would multiple yardage times 7-10% which is the estimated shrinkage based on our recommended wash instructions which you will find at our help center.
How much shrinkage should I expect after prewashing IL087 in cold water and drying on low (until almost dry) and then pressing? Thank you for any help! --Teresa Moore
Based on our recommended washing instructions, the shrinkage is 6% in the length and 4% in the width. You will find out washing instructions in our help center located at the footer of our website.
TheFrench Ticking with cobalt blue will replace a navy velvet window-seat cushion. I found a twisted-rope cording to trim it out.
In the past I have ordered many yards of linen fabric from this company. It has always been perfect until my most recent order. The fabric had a one inch area of fringe like damage, near the center line of the piece. Such a huge disappointment! I have sent photos and asked for a reshipment of the same fabric, but have not yet received a response.
Please note we received the pictures and the email on Friday and we are working on the replacement order. We will email once we have this ready to ship.
I do like this fabric - it's DB IL087 Normandy White/Dolphin Grey - but I already have a bunch, so it isn't what I ordered! I ordered DB IL087 White COBALT. In my last order, I bought a lot of the dolphin grey one, thinking I liked that better and only one yard of the white/cobalt. But I loved it when I saw it so I order the doggie bag of two yards. So I am a bit confused: Looking at my "Orders" it shows that the white/colbalt is "sold out". Yet, you sent me the Dolphin grey? What happened? Thanks.
Beautiful in every way! The exceptional quality shines through making this a gorgeous piece of goods! Really really nice!
