Soft Lemon 100% Linen 56W
A designer quality, 100% linen in a light-medium weight. With a plainweave, it has a natural look with thick and thin yarns typically found in linen fabrics. It has a crisp, yet soft hand and with a gentle wash, will get softer over time. It is semi-sheer when held up to the light, but does not require a lining. This is THE linen to have for all your linen garment projects.
Perfect for spring, summer and fall garments. Classic shirtdresses, asymmetrical and artsy tops & jackets, culottes, shorts and loose fitting pants are all great options for this material. If you're going for a more structured and polished look, be sure to stabilize this fabric for very crisp finishes. This linen is also suitable for some home decor projects.
Care: If you're looking to keep the shape of your garment, we recommend dry clean or hand wash in cold water with a mild detergent. Lay flat to dry. If you're looking for a more washed, casual look, use a gentle wash cold, lay flat to dry. If washing at home, we recommend testing a swatch before washing fabric or garment to ensure that you are happy with the results.

To test a fabric's sheerness, we hold the fabric out over our hands. If we can see the color of our fingers through the fabric, we list it as Semi-Sheer. If we can only see the shadow of our fingers, or we can see light through it, we list this fabric as Translucent. When our hands can be seen clearly through the fabric, the fabric will be listed as Sheer. And if when held up we are unable to see anything at all, this fabric will be listed as Opaque. The stool shot in the additional images of a fabric is usually a good way to see the fabrics sheerness.
For reference the stool we use in the drape shot is 24" tall.
