This is lovely fabric and I just ordered more. It is a fairly deep ivory color - not just a plain white. I do which it came in that kind of browngrey natural linen color. It took to the dye almost too well - came out much darker than my sample test fabric (plain cotton) - so be sure to test if dying.

This fabric is wonderful. It's soft enough and has enough give I can't imagine wearing 100% linen ever again! Holds up well in the wash too.

Love this fabric! Nice medium-weight texture that breathes dyes fabulously and very easy to sew on. Holds up well with washing. I've made a fitted blouse pants and Renfaire skirt so far and they've all turned out wonderfully.

Absolutely gorgeous fabric -- softer than the linen content would suggest irons like a dream comfortable to wear and easy to work with. Made a shift and a kimono out of it and then turned friends onto it for projects of their own. We've dyed stitched and embroidered it with great results. It's fairly hefty in spite of the lovely drape so be aware of that if you're planning on using a lot in a garment -- my kimono (both face and lining out of this) always weighs more folded up than I'd think.

Not quite thrilled. The fabric is a good weight for tops and dresses but in white you'd need a slip for a dress. It even comes out of the drier in pretty good condition. I am not a linen wearer so this might be especially soft for linen. But it is very coarse on my skin and I'm sorry I purchased 10 yards of it because I'm honestly not certain I want that many garments out of fabric that feels this coarse. Guess I'm not a linen person.

I like this fabric more than either linen or cotton alone for any non-specific application. It has more texture than either and is softer than linen alone.

I have had super results dyeing this fabric and then sewing the cloth. The colors are vibrant and the weight of the fabric is perfect for light jackets or shirts.

I had purchased a swatch first and when I rec'd the 10 yards I think the yardage I rec'd is thicker than the swatch - preferred the swatch - otherwise fabric has a nice hand and look

I LOVE this fabric! I use it for table runners and napkins. It takes dye extremely well doesn't wrinkle as much as linen and also tears like cotton (in a straight line) unlike linen. I only wish it was available in wider widths if so it would be perfect for tablecloths.

Excellent fabric for dyeing quilting and trapunto at a better price than any other supplier! Suggest washing before quilting techniques. Beautiful soft texture and just enough weave. Love it!
