IL097 Double-sided Breeze Black / White Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen Fabric - Very Heavy (9.1 oz/yd2), Width 59"
IL097 Breeze is a 59" Wide Heavy Double-Sided Pure 100% linen fabric. This cloth has a generous weight of 9.1 ounces a square yard.
The volume of the fabric is achieved with a unique weaving technique - the cloth is double-sided with two fabrics joined into one cloth throughout the surface area.
Subtle stripes appear wherever the opposite sides of the fabric are interwoven into one. This weaving technique makes the fabric reversible, and you can decide on the dominant color based on your mood and design.
Because the cloth is intertwined in small intervals, the puckering of the fabric after the wash and dry is very mild - gently highlighting the exiting stitching with a mild texture.
You will feel like a magician pulling items made from this fabric out after every wash. They will come out of the drier deliciously textured, silky, and elegant.
This 100% linen has received rigorous Oeko-Tex certification, ensuring that this fabric is free of harmful toxins and irritants, is biodegradable and recyclable (good for your family and good for the planet).
This Linen cloth is perfect for:
- Throws for adults and kids
- Decorative Pillows
- Pet Beds should you spoil your four-legged children as we do
- And Bedding if you like to sleep under a heavier duvet
Plus, we finished this fabric with our Proprietary Signature Finish and the fabric is incredibly plush right out the box!
Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers
Would this fabric work for a jacket?
Yes, this fabric works beautifully for a jacket. I recently made the Fabrics-Store Akira Cardigan in this fabric. You can see a photo on the SAND/WHITE color's page, or on the Akira Page in the customer photo sections.
I plan to make a couple throw blankets. What material would be best to make a binding for my blankets; IL019 or 4C22?
We prefer IL020 lightweight or IL019/1C64 medium weight linens for binding :)
What kind of shrinkage should I expect from this fabric?
Based on our recommended wash instructions it will be less than 3% as this has already gone through our Signature finish process that removes most of the shrinkage.
Will this fabric work for a table cloth?
This linen is really suited for bedding, throws and such. It is a heavier linen that has a lot of movement, which if used for a tablecloth, it may not lay still/flat when in use.
The fabric looks and feels great, the only thing I wish is that there were also more color options for backing material that were darker.
I bought two 1.5-yard remnants to make crib blankets. The fabric is soft and pliable out of the package, easy to work with. I squared up the end cuts easily by cutting along the woven stripes on the dark side, folded the selvedges under twice and edge stitched, then folded the cut ends in twice and stitched. So easy it felt like cheating to tell the mommy who would receive this blanket that I "made" it, but whatever. Thanks to other reviewers, I was prepared for the rather dramatic lint production of the blanket! I think I ended up washing and drying it four times before giving it to my daughter for my grandson's crib, and it wasn't completely lint free even then. What worked best was tossing about four large bath towels in with it to give some friction. I have seen the suggestion of adding clean tennis balls to the load and that would likely be a good idea, only we don't play tennis so I didn't have any. Ultimately I ended up with an oversized crib blanket in a non-babyish color that will easily double as a throw. Soft and cuddly, good for year-round use. I have only sewn up one of the two remnants but will get the other one made up and in reserve for future baby gifts. Actually a longer piece would make a nice graduation gift for a teen headed off to dorm life. I'll have to keep that in mind.
It is indeed close to upholstery weight, but feels soft enough for a garment bottom-weight. A couple of things were not apparent to me from the description on the site: first, the stripes run perpendicular to the selvedge (and grainline). If you make a pair of pants out of this fabric, for example, the stripes are going to be horizontal. Second, the fabric is black-and-white on the right side, and mostly white on the wrong side. If you're looking for a contrast, great, but if you want the sides to be the same, this is not that fabric. FYI.
A a beginner sewist, this fabric is a nightmare for making a blanket with a checkered pattern. Both fabric layers have crazy bias stretch, and heaven help you if you try to do this after prewashing. All the pins, all the clips. I prewashed, pressed, cut into rectangles, pressed again, then tried to match the stripes and grain lines up. Don't do that to yourself. The fabric has a fantastic hand but for heaven's sake, keep the sizing on, account for shrinkage, and just fold the hems and selvedges over. Your blood pressure will thank you.
Made 2 throws with the easy instructions provided. They turned out great and only took about 3 1/2 hours to make. I'm still a beginner at sewing and can't help being tickled with this accomplishment. They're the perfect weight and fabric for us as we don't have air conditioning. Looking forward to my next sewing adventure!
Also my favorite! I love this fabric and I'm conjuring new ways to use it for super comfy but substantial wearables. I'm sure it makes nice throws etc, but as in the quick experimental sweatshirt in the blue version shown here, it is just the right weight for in-between weather, or to toss on when just a bit chilled. Softer with each laundering, I just toss it in the washer and dryer... Now, if I can just take it off long enough to add another pocket! Scheming a jacket from some black on the shelf...
This is a photo of the bedspreads and throw using the fabric purchased from your store! I sent it all to my sister – as she has the talent and experience to work with this material. She has an ETSY shop on-line for other things that she creates and sells. I am looking forward to enjoying the bedspreads and the throw. Thank you for your fantastic products!!
