Sale price: $315.72 per item (10% off)
rich shade of red ochre seems intrinsically bound to nature, invoking
rich, fertile soil and the careworn bark of ancient trees.
Kenyan contemporary painter Michael Armitage has embraced this earthy color to convey his homeland of Kenya, illustrating its wild and untameable beauty with an evocative array of ochre and sienna tinged hues. Amidst his fantastical, wild scenes people from modern life are intermingled with the ghosts of the past, crossing back and forth over one another to form a prismatic and complex vision of Kenyan identity today.
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
Abby's skirt seems to be more of a rust color. Is this more accurate then the fabric pictured?
No the swatch of the color is closer to what the color Kenya is. The picture shows the color lighter than it is.
I love the color and feel of this fabric. I haven't started to work with it , but am excited to do so, and looking forward to a delicious result.
I made my first purchase ever of linen fabric, thru Fabrics-store.com, a few months ago. Made several more purchases since! I am really pleased with the fabric; the way it handles, the way it drapes, the way it feels before and after completing a project! Iʻm encouraging my niece, who is a quilter, to make her first garment out of your linen. Pointed her to your free Agustina pattern. Here is Agustina in IL019 Kenya FS Signature Finish. I love this color! Agustina is cropped, however, I added a couple inches to the length. I also like a looser sleeve, so I sized up for the arms.
For my fabric choice I used two shades of the Signature Finish linen from Fabrics-store in colors Lagoon and Kenya, which were perfect for this project in that they are soft, midweight, and opaque, with beautiful drape. This has been my favorite finish and weight of linen to work with and there are some new colors to chose from!
