This custom linen jersey fabric is unlike any other common linen fabrics on the market. Guess what? It STRETCHES like a cotton jersey. This has a weight (7.1 oz) heavier than other linen jerseys; so it is not as sheer. So you have more coverage as a single layer for blouses, dresses, skirts, pants, scarves, headbands, etc.
Linen has been used in many ancient civilizations as the fabric of choice. It was the fabric of fashion and of daily use. Today modern kitchen linens get their name from flax linen used as kitchen items of the past.
Among plant fibers, flax linen is stronger and more durable than cotton; it is not prone to mold after a day or three of wetness like cotton. Linen derives from the stem of the flax plant whereas cotton is the fruit of the cotton plant. Additionally, it resists dirt and protects from radiation. With continuous washings, linen becomes softer. Come and discover the joys of linen!
It is recommended that you either hand wash or wash your linens on gentle cycle. Please note that untreated linen does not have the same texture as mercerized linen or cotton.
Purchase is for per yard. The yardage width is 64 inches (162.56 cm) in tube form after washing; it's 84 inches before washing. This fabric is untreated (non-mercerized).
Sort of sheer but not like the cheesy "t-shirt" jersey that is so common these days. And it IS jersey - the unfinished edges stretch and curl, exactly as they should.

Super fast shipping, and the seller is duch a doll. This is a very beautiful fabric, semi-sheer, single knit, washes soft easily. I hang dry so not much shrinkage for me at all. Perfect for making linen underclothes like panties after a few washes. For a jersey it does not roll much on the cut edge like synthetic fabrics. Irons like all linens, very very happy with this beautiful fabric, worth every penny.
