Darkness pervades Tacita Dean's artworks, falling over craggy rocks and epic mountains into inky, bottomless wells. BLACK Linen shares Dean's endless black, a colour that intensifies mystery and drama, cloaking and concealing everything it touches.

A finer quality 5.3 ounce medium weight 58 inch wide 100% linen that is woven with finer threads, and an increased thread count. The higher thread count makes 1C64 shrink less and gives this linen a very smooth and luxurious look and feel, earning it the moniker "luxury linen".

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).

What is the "requested format" for ordering 1.5 yards? Thanks!

Our linen is sold in full yard increments, the exception would be items sold in the doggie bag section where you will find a variety of lengths.

Underwhelmed with the color

I bought 2.5 yds of this linen for making blouses. I agree with the previous review in that this linen is beautiful as always but the color is not true black. It is really a dark gray, a very faded 'black' linen. I may have to dye it black myself to make it true black.

Not very black?

I ordered two 1-yard pieces from the doggy bag, and while the fabric has a delightful feel and I will have no trouble finding a use for it, it is faded enough before even washing it that I am not sure my sister (who wants a black blouse) would really consider it black. I would almost consider it a charcoal gray, and expect it to fade at least a bit over time. Have others observed this as well? I hope to load a picture that shows it next to a black velvet jacket that is a very plain intense black. My phone gave the linen a reddish cast in one area that I couldn't eliminate, so ignore that, but the upper part of the pictured linen seems true to life.

Beautiful quality

It took a while to arrive, because the carrier did not deliver my first order. I called customer service and they were AWESOME! Long story short they re-send my order without any run around or issues. The fabric is a true deeply saturated black, very soft with a beautiful drape. I machine washed and dried it and the color is still rich and saturated. It leaves a lot of lint in the dryer the first time, like all new linen fabrics. Not an issue for me as i only tumble dry linen one time to shrink it, after that i line dry.

Perfect for my needs

As a musician, I have to wear a lot of black for stage performances. The lights get very hot, and I have found this linen to be the perfect solution to a comfortable, professional look. Pants, tops, skirts, the style is always comfortable in the IC64 linen.

I used this to make a black skirt. I followed the Gypsum Skirt pattern by Sew Liberated. I am very happy with it!

(1C64 Black Softened Middle). I thought I ordered IL019 Black Softened Middle, it turned out to be a good mistake. Can't have enough black linen outfits. Both Simplicity patterns (top was cropped from a dress pattern S9101; wide legged pants cropped to ankle length S8389). Can't wait to wear on my next travel adventure! I love linen from Fabrics-store!

Happy with this fabric. It is a tad see through in the sun. I'm wondering if the heavy weight would be less transparent. Other than that I am happy with the fabric and color. Turned out great for my project. I love working with linen and wearing it.

Although I have the skills to do my own pattern making, I love to support other crafters, patternmakers, and small business owners when sewing pieces for my own wardrobe. Plus, it saves a lot of time. I was instantly attracted to the Zadie Jumpsuit design because the surplice wrap top.
