Rated 4 out of 5 by KKnitz Lightweight linen jersey
This was purchased to make a couple of oversized tops, similar in style to Eileen Fisher Boxy tops. Also bought the brown linen knit, and all details in this review pertain to that fabric also.
Fabric is described as 'semi-sheer' -- and that is accurate. Anything underneath this jersey will be revealed -- undergarments, or, ... so consider carefully how you will use it. IMO it works well as a light over-layer, and is especially nice as a drapy little summer cardigan -- like view A of McCall's 6844.
Fabric was machine washed and laid flat to dry before sewing. No noticeable loss of color from either the peach shade or the brown. Shoulder seams were taped to prevent droop, as there is very little stretch recovery with this fabric. Fabric is very similar, in fact appears virtually identical, to linen jersey available at much higher cost from other sellers.
