The deep, inky tone of ROYAL PURPLE linen has the warm intensity of a dwindling sunset as the light fades into shadow. This time of day was a favorite with painter Paul Signac, who saw deep purple tones in the shadows around him as the golden sun of his native France began to sink downwards to the ground.

At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Is it sheer?

Not overly in some lighting it may be but overall most do not need to add another layer when wearing.

Love purple linen

I purchased this to match a heavier weight linen I purchased 6 yrs ago. I was amazed that it was really close. The heavier linen is an 1830's petticoat and this new linen will be a short gown. I also bought extra because I wanted to make a top for the summer. I love all the linen I can get from the Fabric Store. It wears like iron.

So great I had to reorder

Love the color, the hand. It sews like a dream and holds it shape. I had to reorder and glad I did since it's now sold out.

Oh it is gorgeous

This linen is soft and the most gorgeous rich purple. It arrived this morning and after washing and ironing, I'm half way through making it up. It's sews beautifully. Looking forward to a reason to buy more.

Style Arc Almy blouse. This light weight linen is good choice for the pattern and flounce collar.

Magpie tunic from Sewtinagivens. Added a pocket and length, skipped the decorative stitching. This purple linen is so gorgeous!
