Warmth permeates Rembrandt van Rijn's paintings as golden, syrupy candlelight falls and disappears into velvet brown shadows. CHOCOLATE linen mirrors the earthy and enveloping darkness in Rembrandt's paintings, which swarms around the light and gives it torch lit radiance.

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.

Reviewer: Sherry

Brown hasn't been my first choice in fabrics, until I saw this linen. Loved a suit posted in reviews, decided to make a romper for my daughter in law. Used the Olivia pattern by untitled thoughts, lined the top in oasis- it's just fabulous. She looks amazing, the linen is fantastic. Pic posted. Now I'm making a strand coat by merchant and mills, the back is black heavy weight & the front is this luscious brown. I love this weight, and this color- going to make a whole array of apparel for family and especially for me-!

Reviewer: Jennifer

I was making a pair of medieval re-enactor pants for my husband and decided I'd try linen. I was worried because linen is known to fray, but I was going to also give french seams a go. Since this was my first attempt to make a wearable garment with french seams, it actually worked to my advantage, since the few errors around curves were easy to manicure with a small pair of scissors rather than having to rip a seam open and redo short sections. The color is also beautiful and the texture gives the pants a very authentic look.

Reviewer: Nayila

Despite my experience with woven fabrics, this was my first time working with linen and I am in love! While using a midweight needle my machine encountered no issues and I found the fabric to be unfussy and forgiving. The finished suit had a satisfying weight to it and the pleats and pocket details pressed beautifully.

This brown has tones as above and is fairly dark. I have three browns in this weight all lovely. In comparison the Potting Soil has a yellow to yellow orange undertone, the Chestnut a reddish to reddish peach undertone; pretty if you leave fringes/fraying. The chocolate and chestnut are rich, complex and varied colors despite being dyed at once and not thread dyed, as I understand it. People ooh and ah. Fabric very soft after 3 hot pre washes with hot dryer too. Soft, complex, and thick, but not hot to wear. Not at all see thru. Drapes nicely. 4 stars is d/t chestnut and poppy this weight both with a big round nub way too big to leave and when teased out left a hole requiring darning. But tiny hole.

Reviewer: Lisa

I used about a dozen different colors of 4C22 in our recent ballet, Peter Pan. It is the perfect weight, is so easy to sew, and the colors are so saturated they look amazing on stage. I used CHOCOLATE for Hooks fabulous coat. It moves like magic.

Untitled thoughts Olivia romper, beautiful in this heavier weight linen. Easy to work with, lined top with oasis& serged shorts seams. Love the drape& feel of the heavier linens.

The one thing I noticed with linen is its tendency to fray. This, however, gave me an opportunity to try a technique I had never used before - bias bound seams! The result was possibly the most satisfying clean finish to a garment I have ever completed.
