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 medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 58 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.

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).

Hi, What is the best way to launder your fabric before cutting out a pattern? Thanks, Nadine Nakanishi

Please see our help center for recommended wash instructions. Cool to warm water wash, tumble dry low heat. Zig zag or serge the ends to make sure the linen does not fray.

I bought 4 yard of this to make my daughter an outfit. I can just see her in this color. This store is so cost effective, has excellent quality linen and great customer service. You can't go wrong. Remember, the weave of the fabric tightens right up with pre shrinking. I wash & dry 4 X before cutting.

Gorgeous fabric

This is beautiful linen, rich color. I cannot find this kind of quality linen in my area. Fabric-store is a wonderful source for this natural fabric.

Almost Perfect

This is just my second order. My first order was the natural handkerchief linen. Although this linen was labeled "softened" it arrived stiffer than I wanted for the dress I want to make. So it took 4 wash and dry cycles to soften it so it will drape. The color is beautiful, I just wish it was a little deeper purple: This dress will be machine embroidered with a purple variegated rayon thread. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

New duvet cover showcasing the linen my daughter stamped for me. I used IL019 Royal Purple.

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
