St Ives painter Ben Nicholson captured the crisp, fresh and invigorating air of the Cornish landscape in vivid shades of blue like SKYLIGHT, along with pale grays, soft beiges, and the occasional flashes of bold primary hues.
Though he shifted through various styles in a long and prolific career, ranging from expressive landscapes to geometric abstraction, his art was in essence an homage to the coastal town of St Ives where he lived for much of his adult life, soaking up the wide beaches, craggy clifftops and expansive, panoramic views out to sea.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 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.
Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers
This looks like what used to be "Moonflower" or very similar. Is that right?
This one has a bit more green to it - if you would like us to send you a sample,please email us at askfabrics-store.com
I am surprised to see this in the blue section, it looks like a seafoam green on my screen. How does it compare to Meadow? Does it have cool or warm undertones?
This is a very pale aqua and is much lighter than the Meadow with less blue. It has cool undertones.
As usual, this linen is easy to work with (if the cat stays away). I'm in the process of sewing up a spring/summer weight nightgown out of the Skylight linen. Instead of making the traditional robe to go over it, I was asked to make a over-the-head pinafore style apron with big pockets on the front lap and two smaller ones on the bib Ties on each side to keep it in place. I'll be using the Sphinx linen for that. Since the lady I'm making this for also does historical re-enacting, I'm using period appropriate trims and sewing techniques on the night gown. Although the apron won't be historically correct for her period, I'll use the same treatment on the apron too.
Like ALL of Fabrics Store linens this is beautiful! Haven't made anything YET...
