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 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).

Perfect for my needs
Reviewer: charlotte

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!

I'm a self-proclaimed fabric snob who will only use fabrics that get better with age and are fun to sew. For this reason, I always choose to sew with natural fibers. My biggest tip for anyone learning to sew and/or starting a capsule wardrobe: make the switch from synthetic fibers to natural fibers! Cotton, linen, wool, and hemp are all good options. You will be amazed at how well these fabrics cut, iron, sew together, and wear. Making that switch is an important step in building a wardrobe that you actually enjoy wearing and will stand the test of time.

Just completed my fourth pair of summer shorts. Obviously I love the material. It is as wonderful as advertised. If you have access to a serger sewing shorts time, soup to nuts, takes an afternoon max.

I just wanted to say this stuff is wonderful. Not that the other linen sold here is not just as great. In comparison to 1L019, I would call this the "polished" version. Like comparing a broadcloth cotton to a polished cotton. I've used both 1L019 and 1C64 in black, and the biggest difference is the way the light reflects off the fabric - 1L019 is a flatter, or duller, surface and therefore looks like a darker black. 1C64 also seems to handle more like a lightweight linen, but is more opaque - perfect for a blouse or skirt where you don't want see-through to be an issue. It's lovely stuff to work with. :-)

Must try this fine black linen
Reviewer: Anonymous

Bought this linen based purely on the smooth look, the hand and ease of sewing. Step up to the 1C64 fine linen for your next clothing project and you will not be disappointed!

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.

Casual summer dress

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.

Jacket and jumpsuit both made from ic64 black linen. I love this linen... soft, opaque, with a lovely smooth surface. It is a pleasure to work with and wear. The jacket pattern is the Wiksten Kimono by Wiksten patterns and the jumpsuit is the Amy Jumpsuit by Closet Case patterns. You can read more about these on my blog, unlikelynest.com

I made these Christmas pillows on my Bernina 880, using the 1C64 black softened linen. The piping was made using IL019 crimson softened linen. Both worked beautifully! The black linen is so soft and has a nice polished look.

I made these overalls (Burnside Bibs pattern from Sew House 7) for my sister out of 1C64 Black linen. After wearing them, she texted me to ask, "Are you a wizard?? How did you get this linen to not wrinkle like crazy?!" The 1C64 linen is beautiful to sew with and wear!
