Rated 5 out of 5 by MissLady lovely texture
The best thing about this fabric is the texture -- the slubbing and the slight sheen give it very nice dimension. The color is rich although not as dark as pictured (at least from my monitor). I made an over-sized short-sleeved shirt and the drape is great. I would buy this again in this or another color.

I ordered 1.5 yds/ea of this fabric in the royal and jade green colors. The knit fabric looks and feels exactly like a linen knit garment I have by Eileen Fisher - it really is "designer" fabric.
I washed both of mine in a short cycle, cold water wash, then line dried them - just what I will do with the final garment. Each held their color. Took a star off because the green piece shrunk about 5-10% and distorted at the edges - it didn't maintain the square shape that the blue one did. The knit looks the same for both, but probably came from different lots. The green isn't so off that I'm returning it. I'm planning to soak it again, then reshape and dry flat before cutting.
It is semi-sheer, so a close fitting top might need a lining or a tank layer, etc. For a looser design it's user's choice. I wouldn't use it for a dress for fear of snagging the knit.
