would like some of that fabric too but they only have three colors for that price. Maybe later.

I bought some of it a while back and the piece I got turned out to be horribly and incorrectably off grain once it was washed and dried.

They did give me a refund.

I got a piece in my mystery bundle a while back and mine was also off grain. It's also very static-y and quite thin.

in my experience, fabric selling at $1.99/ yard has the quality of $1.99/ yard fabric.

Which may be adequate for one's purpose.

I haven't done anything with mine, but I do have a piece of the poly/linen and the rayon/linen.

It's not bad for $2 per yard. The poly blend does seem to be more of a poly knit with random bits of rayon thread chucked into the thread every so often than a blend.

It is really thin.

I got some nice linen blend at Hancock's in the spring, washed wonderfully and a good price, but now I see just the all-linen
there. You might check their Bargain racks which get in a little
of everything. I have better luck with them than JA's Redlines,
which are mostly useless and not markdowns.

It isn't 1.99, but the BEA4618 Striped Jersey Knit Cream, Limeade, Orange at FM is a nice meaty knit with a very soft brushed side. Yum!

I had a piece of the linen knit, and it was thin and stuck to itself. This was ok for my non-garment purposes, but I don't think I'd really want to make a garment out of it.

mmmmm woooool
