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).

Linen passion
Reviewer: Marsha

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!

Sorry
Reviewer: Rhonda

I thought I was reviewing the Asphalt in the IL019. It was the Asphalt IL019 I made the sheet and pillowcase in.

I love the color of this gray, not to dark and not to light.
Reviewer: Rhonda

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.

If you are expecting gray, this is blue...
Reviewer: Craig

I ordered this because it was a nice color of gray. The sample I ordered in advance was gray too. However, the 32 yards I purchased was more blue, and after washing, it turned light blue. I'll attach a picture of the (costly) finished slipcovers. The color is acceptable to my wife or I would have returned the lot - be forewarned...

Great Grey Linen
Reviewer: Mary

I used this linen to make a slipcover and cushions for my couch. It's a good medium weight and great color. The feel is also soft and comfortable. It was to nice to give the old couch a new a life with a casual shabby chic look.

Great for upholstery
Reviewer: Sara

I used this fabric to upholster a diamond tufted headboard. There was a lot of stretching, pulling, manipulation involved and the fabric held up great! It's so soft and easy to manage which was really important for me with such a big project. Really happy with this purchase and the price!!

Fantastic Product Limited Quantites
Reviewer: Patrick

The linen is beautiful and the quality is great they get five stars! My problem, I would like to buy at least a bolt and a half and color is not available for the moment. there in lies the issue. As a standard color carried for the last several years you would think an arrival time line would be available. As a decorator 75 yards or even 2 bolts is not a large order. A wall of large windows in need a curtains in this beautiful fabric is all it takes. Please be able to offer some time line of availability, or if in fact your colors will be discontinued. Thank you

Perfect weight for drapey, loose-fit pants.

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.

Japanese style apron, crosses in the back. I enjoyed working with this fabric. It makes a sturdy apron, comfortable to wear, and softens over time. The color was quite a bit lighter than I was expecting. Slate grey (with a bluish hue) is a better description.

the FS website turned my picture sideways - trying again.

Asphalt is like an egg shell or slate blue - not gray. It was this color before washing, but washing x2 to pre-shrink (no soap) brought it to a lighter blue. I'm disappointed, but luckily the color is nice. Just not what I wanted.
