Rated 4 out of 5 by pixie not realy rose pink
I absolutely love the Kaufman Essex Linen Blend fabris and have bought them in four different colors. I have had great luck softening them up with a prewash before getting started . They are soft, yet work great for items such as dresses or shirths that have crisp collar or cuff. My only complaint with this particular fabric is that it is not rose pink but rather mauve or dusty pink.

This fabric should not be used for apparel. Its awfully scratchy, and I tried washing and even adding more and more softener each time, but to no avail. I bought many different colors, and they were all 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!
