Kaufman Essex Linen Blend Light Blue
A huge fan!
I am a hug fan of the Kaufman Linen Blend fabric. I really love this color, It is much lighter than it shows up on the computer screen. When it arrive it is really stiff, but I have had great luck prewashing and drying it. It works great for skirts or shirts that have a crisp collar or cuff, but I am sure that it would work well for a piar of summer shorts, pants, or skirt.

Itchy and scratchy
I can't believe this fabric is recommended for apparel. Its awfully scratchy, and I tried washing and even adding more and more softener each time, but to no avail. I bought five different colors, and a total of 13.5 yards, and it was a waste of money. It irritates my skin to even carry it. I will try fully lining anything I make. Hopefully the sharp fiber ends won't poke through the lining fabric!
