The damp, earthy green of DUSTY LOTUS Linen brought shadowy depths into John Constable's windswept landscapes, lending them the fresh coolness of the British countryside.
Glowering, tempestuous skies hang over his brooding scenes, while the land below ripples in and out of the light, shifting from sunlit leaves to moody, cold shadows. Shifting patterns of light across land and sky fascinated him for his entire career, as he observed, “… let the form of an object be what it may – light, shade and perspective will always make it beautiful.”

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).

Hello, This fabric has been used by lots of our customers for upholstery and slip covers. We always recommend you get a sample or small cut if available in our doggy bag remnants section first. This way you can verify the fabric is right for you before committing to your yardage :)

Love this shade of green, like a deep earthy darker green, not to bright or dull. Was so inspired by the wrap dress posted in the blog and I love greens! I'm hunting for the perfect wrap dress pattern and have made a muslin on one that needs alterations before I cut into this nice linen. So happy to have found fabrics-store! My linen fabric collection is growing!

Beautiful beyond belief

Purchased for my husband a re-enactment shirt. Took it today to have the cleaners steam press the linen which will prevent shrinkage of the final garment. Much easier on me than washing and ironing large pieces of fabric. It will be ready in a couple of days. Excited to work with your fabric again.

We'd love to know how your fabric comes out after the steam press and how much your fabric shrinks. That sounds like a wonderful way to avoid washing large fabric cuts, and your feedback will help us suggest this to others who also may like to do this too!

The color is very beautiful! I have only just washed it, but have plans for a dress. Just know that it does shed a lot and to check your lint trap often while drying. It was a bit more slubby than usual, but nothing that really bothers me. Will definitely order more!

One hot wash and dry on the right, left I think I did more than that. Just wanted to share a color comparison between LEFT: DB IL019 All-purpose Agave Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2) MIDDLE: DB 4C22 Rustic Dried Herb Softened - 100% Linen - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2) RIGHT: 4C22 Rustic Dusty Lotus Softened - 100% Linen - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2 Personal opinion: when they're next to each other, dried herb takes on more of a brown/yellow cast, and agave takes more of a aqua cast. Even the lotus is a bit of a blue cast in indoor light. Honestly, the comparison makes dried herb and agave look a lot "worse" but I do love all three. The dried herb is quite similar in color to a Son de Flor dress I bought. I do REALLY love the dusty lotus though, it's very nice. It's definitely not an in-your-face green like I would define the color "emerald" but it's really lovely. The other two are a lot more green when not next to other greens. For example, agave is a really lovely green when paired with natural linen.

This weekend, I welcomed the first day of spring by sewing a linen dress for Easter. I chose the NOOR Dress in DUSTY Lotus green linen for this occasion, as I was drawn to the long sleeves and flattering wrap silhouette. Of course, I will wear this dress beyond Easter Sunday, but having a specific end use in mind helps me narrow down the style and fabric color when picking out my next sewing project.
