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.

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).

Sofa cover

I bought 10 yards of this heavy black linen to cover my sofa. It's the first thing I've purchased and am quite pleased with the fabric. I washed and dried it and it has a lovely soft but slightly crinkled surface. It has been quite easy to work with and drapes quite nicely.

Sun bleach/wear line down the center.

I ordered 15 yards of this to make a duvet and pillow cases, which I've completed. It wasn't until it was on the bed that I noticed the sun bleached line straight down the center and there's nothing I can do about it now. The top of the bolts must be exposed to sunlight somewhere. It's unfortunate, I've bought quite a bit from here but this was the first disappointing purchase.

Unhappy - dye lot looks washed out and faded after one wash

I've been ordering from fabric-store for years, and this was the second time I ordered this heavy black linen by the bolt. My last bolt was beautiful...even after washing it was beautiful, dark, with a sheen. This bolt was a total disappointment. When washed, it looked washed out and faded. Won't match any of my dark blacks because of the dullness. Not sure if I received a bad bolt, or if the supplier changed, but had to put all 20 yards to the side for something else, and all my projects are on hold. VERY unhappy...this represented a large investment, and both this and the blue I ordered (which was too light to be called "royal blue") were not up to the quality I usually expect from fabric-store.

Fantastic weight for pants

I made the Cass pants with this weight as suggested in the pattern and it was entirely the perfect material/weight. I will make several modifications to the pattern for myself (see pattern blog review) but overall...just fantastic drape and hand.

Mariann profile image Great weight for bottoms

I bought quite a bit of this on sale. Finally used a yard or so to make Anna Allen Clothing company Pomona shorts. I diverged from the directions by adding flat felt seams. Love these--washed on receipt, still a little stiff, but fully expect them to soften with repeated washings. Next to do the same pattern in trousers.

I used this beautiful, crisp fabric to back and border my quilt. I love the contrast in color. It was a breeze to work with this fabric. And my quilt is cozy and breathable at the same time! Oh the wonders of Fabric-Store llinens! I am hooked!!!

just thought you might like to see that your fabric is useful for things other than sewing projects and clothes.This is your heavyweight black being used as a spine lining in a book repair.Shown is an 1866 Yale yearbook - Middlesex Bindery middlesexbindery.com

This is the Cass pant (free pattern with directions in blog). Loved working with this weight linen.
