French painter Pierre Soulages made a career out of painting with shades of black like ANTHRACITE, sweeping it in broad, confident gestures across paper and canvas. His stark, minimal designs nod towards the simple confidence of cave paintings and Japanese calligraphy, with loose marks crisscrossing over one another to create the sensations of depth, space and movement.
New York art dealer Domonique Levy observes the high contrast this black creates, noting, “He’s followed one journey all his life, which has led him more and more towards the light. Despite the fact that they are black, the paintings are all about capturing the light.”
At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 58 inch wide 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).

Customer Questions and Answers
How do you compare the color of this fabric to that of IL020 Handkerchief Black Softened Light? I am looking for linen that is jet black.
This color is what you would consider an off black so it would look faded next to a jet black. The black in the IL020 would be the one to use it is not considered a lighter or off black but a true black.
Is this fabric see through?
The darker colors of the IL020, like this color, Anthracite, is not see through :)
This is so incredibly soft and fine, handkerchief weight linen in anthracite black. It drapes perfectly. I am making a handfasting sash. This is such lovely highest quality fabric. The company gave me a very generous cut, more than shrinkage allowed. It was shipped quickly and securely. I am thrilled.
I bought this hoping to reproduce a beloved and patched-to-the-hilt pair of baggy linen pants. I washed and dried it and was amazed at how soft and wrinkle-proof the fabric became. It sewed up like a dream. On the body, it feels as light as nothing and drapes with a softness that doesn't add bulkiness, as a crisper linen would. I bought more in black and some in the natural color as well. I recommend it to anyone wanting clothing for hot, humid weather.
