At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

New duvet cover
Reviewer: Margaret

I purchased the IL019 Royal Purple to make a new duvet cover showcasing the linen my daughter stamped for me for a Christmas gift. Although I still have the shams to make, I am very pleased with how beautifully the cover went together.

Great Color
Reviewer: Laurie

My sister loves purple and 5 yards are becoming a new dress for her. It is the perfect color, and as always, great quality.

This is all I want to wear
Reviewer: Erin

I'm a huge fan both of linen and of purple, so this is probably one of my favorite fabrics in the world. The color is gorgeous, the weight is wonderful, and I'm so looking forward to making trousers from it. One of the more accurate online color swatches, IMO.

Beautiful purple
Reviewer: Vickie

I ordered this fabric because it was on sale, not really feeling confident I would like it because my monitor showed it as a bright purple. I'm glad I took a chance on it because it is beautiful. Not bright at all a more subdued color but really lovely. Will probably make a dress since it is an "adult" color and as always of a great quality. Thanks!

Gorgeous!
Reviewer: Marjorie

Such a lovely shade of purple. It will be stunning beneath the silver outer gown (Elizabethan period).

Nice Color
Reviewer: Dennis

As of 7/26/08 the color in the picture here is a bit lighter than the actual fabric. I have contacted the website and they said they would update it. It is still a very nice color purple. Make sure you wash this at least 3 times in HOT water. This color ran like a stuck pig through 2 hot washes, although, I believe it was just extra color running out. Very nice color and I look forward to using it very soon!

Great shade
Reviewer: Theresa

I matched this with the yarn dye light purple and white linen IL044-256. It makes a wonderful contrast of dark and light. It's definitely a grape - not a wine or blue purple. It's also an elegant "adult" purple in my opinion. It doesn't scream elementary school crayon purple... It's not too stiff nor too soft.

Thank You
Reviewer: Bernadette

Last Spring I wrote an email requesting that you stock a good royal purple. I admit I wasn't confident so prepared to goad my local sewing/costuming friends into writing as well. That same day you sent a reply asking if I had a swatch of the desired color. I mailed it out and a week later you told me that you'd forward it to the dye house, and would try. Thank you! thank you! Thank you so much for providing a source for this beautiful vibrant hue. It's been so difficult to find any royal purple linen. I bought some the first week you had it available. It's held it's color through 2 hot(nuclear) pre-washes and it's time in the dryer only made it softer. It loses about 7% in the pre-shrinking so folk should remember that when ordering. It's ready to cut...I can't wait. It's also wonderfully compatible with your other colors. For re-enactment purposes, it goes so well with the Autumn Gold IL019. Thank you again for your responsive attention. It's the most sterling example of your excellent customer service. You're my favorite shop, and the first place I look to or recommend to my friends. Keep up the great work

Just finished this altar cloth for Lent. The color is beautiful and fabric worked up very easily. Washed it prior to cutting. The fabric is great!

Can't get enough of this Royal Purple! 14th Century Horse Caparisons made with IL019 Royal Purple & IL019 Autumn Gold (trim & lining). The devices are felt appliqué on IL019 Royal Purple (completed by others). This just flows so well and keeps the horses cool (unlike most fabrics used for projects like this). I will definitely keep using this for SCA use. :D Models: Kacey & Moose

I used this is part of a 15th Century Equestrian Caparison and it was perfect. The color is so vibrant and the weight is fantastic. I absolutely *love* working with this linen! Both front & back pieces are made from IL019 linen (the blue is 4C22).
