Deep, dark and indulgent, DULSE linen's blackberry stained hue can invoke both the theatrical grandeur of royalty and the hidden depths of primordial desire.

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).

Customer Questions and Answers


I love this color except in one picture it looks burgandy, in the next it is RED. Which is it please? Would this weight work for making a shirtwaist dress? Or is the 7.1 too heavy?

It is more of a burgundy and it would make up beautifully in a shirtwaist dress.

Beautiful Fabric and Color

So happy I picked this red after looking at all of the shades available. It is a pure burgundy/wine color with blueish undertones...no trace of orange here at all. Mine will be used to make an 18th century style waistcoat. It does have the perfect weight for garments that need to have body, this is not a drapy linen at all. But if your project needs to have a bit of struture this weight will be perfect. It washes beautifully.

Just as described

I haven't used this fabric yet but it arrived quickly and is just as described. The color is saturated and rich. The feel is great. At this point I'm not sure what I'll create with this. I was thinking a sport coat. Whatever I make it will be gorgeous in this fabric.

Beautiful, but not holding up to washing as I would like.

the color is amazing. It's rich and juicy, exactly like a ripe pomegranate. It's wonderfully versatile. The linen feels great to the hand, hangs and sews great and doesn't stretch out much at all with wear. However, I had to take two stars off because the fabric is still shedding a surprising amount of fuzz after being washed 4+ times, and the pants I made looks a bit worn in spots as if the color has washed out.
