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 color that intensifies mystery and drama, cloaking and concealing everything it touches.

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 Premier Finish undergoes a two-step process to give the cloth a luxurious, supple feel right out of the box.

First, we apply a softener to give the fabric a silkier surface. Then, strong blasts of air are blown into the woven cloth. This beats up the fibers to make them softer and mimics the fiber bending process that the fabric undergoes when you've used it a lot.

This finishing process gives the fabric a much softer and more luxurious hand. It will be less prone to deep creases and have less linting. Shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration based on the fabric type ( thread size, count, weave type).

Lovely texture and weight

I made the free high-waist culottes pattern and a sleeveless dress. Both turned out great and the fabric is a perfect weight for spring. It's substantial enough to wear with a sweater, but it will work for a warmer day, too.

Such a great fabric

I haven't used this weight linen yet, but I have made several pairs of linen cropped pants and one lightweight linen top from fabric-stores.com linen, and I really love the linen. I'm sure I'll love this one, too. I am planning to make another pair of slightly heavier weight cropped pants and a black linen bag. The pants I have made have been wonderful -- much softer and more comforttable than those I buy pre-made, and they don't crease if I get them out of the dryer before it stops, they have a most wonderful texture.

After looking through many wide leg pant designs, I landed on the FS CASS pattern for its many design details I love for a summer pant. To no one's surprise, I decided to make this classic and versatile piece in FS BLACK heavy linen, my favorite fabric lately. The heavier-weight is a little stiff at first, but softens beautifully after a few washes. It's incredibly textured and durable.
