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.

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).

Egle profile image Pleasure to work with!

I used a lot of heavy weight linen, including this chocolate brown one. I've made kitchen aprons, towels, decorative pillowcases and tote bags. If interested, you can see them on my Etsy shop: ChooseLinen.etsy.com

I just finished a pair of pillowcases using the chocolate brown linen ; the fabric js wonderful to work with. I like the heavier weight of the fabric got the cases. I used the pattern in the files for them, but I think the picture showing the placement of the ties is deceiving . It may be that I didn't understand the directions, but it looks like the ties are folded in half. I sewed them like this and had to take them out and resew. I have used the lighter weight linen and made seven dresses for me, and two for my sister plus several blouses!

Just yummy

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-!

Great Product to work with

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.

New love!

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.

Small tote bag with two front pockets, made from chocolate brown linen. I used natural medium weight linen for the lining. Definitely it was a pleasure making it, and customers love it! I sell them on my Etsy shop - chooselinen.etsy.com

Waves and wild dungarees in chocolate—washed once before making. Cloudy day spring lighting shows the color fairly accurate. I pieced a yard and half yard so there's an extra seam on the leg—I'm wearing to see where I should hem the ankle. The fabric is easy to sew, but switch to a mid to heavy weight needle and longer stitch (I got lazy and broke a lightweight needle when going over four layers.)

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.
