4C22 Rustic Asphalt Softened - 100% Linen - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2)
Our best selling Grey for many years, this slightly faded version brings a vintage vibe to a tried and true color. ASPHALT
linen mimics the tone of Vicken Parson's cool, mid-grey shadows, a color
suggesting the concrete pavements, rain soaked bricks and hardened metal
of the urban jungle.
At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.
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).
|Thread size warp||11.6|
|Thread size weft||11.6|

Customer Questions and Answers
Does your softening process essentially pre-shrink the fabric? I will certainly prewash but I'm figuring yardage pretty closely. If I should expect significant shrinkage, can you guide by how much?
Our softened linen is not laundered and has not been pre-shrunk. Please figure 7-10 percent shrinkage based on our recommended wash instructions that you will find here support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000218543-Linen-Care-Pre-washing-and-Washing-your-Linen
is this weight sufficient for reupholstering a couch?
Yes it is and is the most popular choice for upholstery projects.
I am getting a club chair professionally reupholstered. Is the 7oz fabric/weight appropriate for this project? If I order eight yards, can it be delivered on a roll instead of folded? Thanks!
Due to the extra charges the carriers levy on the oversized tube we only ship 20+ yards on a tube.
This is a warm grey. Very nice. I made seat cushions for dining room chairs. Looks very nice against the black chairs. Note to self: always order the extra yard! I had to dig into my scraps to find enough for the last few cushion ties. Love this linen. Always looking for a new project to make from linen!
Linen brings me great enjoyment. Elated to find fabric-store. The colors, textures stir up creativity. I'm sole proprietor of Linen & Pearls sewing. I Focus mainly on bridal & formal. Covid down season allowed me time to sew for myself. I've created a collection of linen garments. I literally sigh the depth of colors, softness & living feel of linen. It's such a treat to sew on this fabric. So passionate I named my business after it, long live linen!
I LOVE this wonderful fabric store!!! I LOVE their linen fabric!! It's awesome!!! I always receive my fabric very quickly. I am VERY HAPPY and will continue to order from them!!
I thought I was reviewing the Asphalt in the IL019. It was the Asphalt IL019 I made the sheet and pillowcase in.
I made a sheet and pillowcase from this Asphalt and Optic White. The contrasting colors are just lovely and the drape is beautiful. Perfect linen weight for sheets.
I created this pattern because I had a jumpsuit that I just love and wanted to replicate the style. It is so comfortable, and the weight and heft of this linen lends itself perfectly to it. If I could post a second picture, I would show the pearl buttons I used for the back of the bodice that really go nicely with the linen. So addictive!
Great to stitch on. I am creating blocks with hand overdyed wool for a quilt throw. Here's one of the blocks. I'm not sure if I will put two blocks together back to back, fringing the raw edge allowance, so one side is fringed squares of colors and the other is the whimsical artwork or if I will do these the traditional way. Just thought I'd share a concept for anyone wanting to make home decor or a gift. I love that it is strong and softens as it is washed repeatedly.
