Dark, brooding and dramatic, the intense blue of COBALT linen was ideal for Renaissance painter Jacopo Vignali's heightened, operatic scenes.
A leading painter in the Florentine Seicento, Vignali's Baroque paintings were defined by flowing swathes of jewel-toned fabric in midnight blues and crimson reds; set amidst theatrical, directional light, these richly toned colors amplify the romantic agony and tragedy of his stories.

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).

All Done!

I finished the pants (baggy leg with a simple 3" elastic waistband). They are perfect! They could be a little more flowy but I feel they will soften more after a few washes. I love how they feel and fit!!!!

Definitely not flowy fabric. I'm planning on making a pair of baggy pants with it. Not sure how it will go. It did soften after washing so I think it will be great. I live in South Texas where the winters don't get so cold and I think pants made from this fabric would be perfect. I will post an update once I know.

Nice deep blue

The color was just what I was looking for to make a skirt. Sturdier than the middle weight which is exactly what I wanted, Washed up beautifully without the color fading at all, also, still has a soft hand.

Have not made up

I have not made up my mind yet because it's more of a fall and winter weight I will be on the lookout for a really nice pattern

I used the cobalt to make the Paola Workwear Jacket (a free pattern offered by Fabric-store and a must try!). *I altered the pockets and reversed the button side for a men's jacket. The cobalt was very similar to the color as seen on my screen. As always, please with my linen order!

I made tea/barista towels with this beautiful cobalt linen. These are sold in a coffee shop and they could not be more pretty. The weight is terrific and the color is rich even after washing.

I sew mostly everyday garments. I love wearing linen year around. This jacket is made from Heavy Rustic Black 4C22. After 2 washes it starts to show the Indigo. I love it.
