With the weighty indulgence of port wine, EARTH linen's warm, rich darkness swept across Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio's canvases, lending them an entrancing, dark opulence. Set against dark shadows and pale flesh, Caravaggio explored how this colour could bring heady notes of sinful decadence into his paintings, heightening their passionate tension and trembling tenebrism, inducing the awe-inspiring spectacle of the sublime.

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).

Reviewer: Tsutee

Just received my Earth linen and I LOVE the color. I will be making an 18th century chemise with it, as I wear clothing from that era. Even in my daily modern life I wear 18th century clothing. I can not tell you enough how glad I am that I found your website, and how much I love all the linen I have ordered. LOVE LOVE LOVE Tsutee

Pic misleading
Reviewer: Daniel

I was pretty upset when I opened the package. The pic shows a rich red brown and what I got was more a burgundy with no brown whatsoever. As the title says, its supposed to be more earth shade than red. I've waste 10 yds with this purchase. Not happy at all.

Favorite color
Reviewer: Sandra

This is one of my favorite colors of all the linens. "Earth" does not do it justice. It should be called Mahogany. It's a very rich brown, with red and purple overtones. Absolutely beautiful.

Mahogany and Dark Cherry
Reviewer: Jean

The best way to describe Earth is comparing it to wood stains. Is it Cherry, Chestnut, Mahogany, or Walnut? It's a nuanced color that can work well with cool tones such as Shadow Grey as well as warm tones. I agree that it would be great if Earth came in the lL019 weight. The heavier weight was used for the October Peppermint Magazine free pattern offer from Paper Theory, the Pocket Skirt.

Same color in ILO19, please!
Reviewer: Lisa

This is a wonderful color! Perfect balance between brown, red and purple. It is rich and sophisticated. FS, please make this same color available in the ILO19 middle weight linen! Tawny port and wild cherry are too red/purple for me but this earth color is just right.

I love 4C22!
Reviewer: Cindy

4C22 - and even IL019 - is perfect for one cover sleeping, even in a full-on 4 season environment where the summers are steamy hot and the winters subzero cold! It keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter, even with no other blankets! Just buy some "softened", whack off a couple of yards and go to bed! Get lots of colors of doggie bag pieces, slap together some pillow cases, a couple of big squishy throw pillows, sew some patchwork to the visible bits of your mattress and box spring, a 2 or 2 -1/2 yard piece on top of an old fitted sheet and you have your own little corner of linen heaven, right there in your bed! Add a loosely stuffed pillow and you can pinch it in the middle, lift it up and shake the stuffing out of the middle to the sides to make a little puddle to keep your phone, tissues, glasses and book from falling off the bed - assuming the cats and dogs don't commandeer it for their own little piece of linen heave-in-a-bed - which they absolutely will - which means you should probably make more than one....or a double puddle - one for the dog and one for your book/kindle, glasses and phone....I guess...

Alisha profile image Color is perfect for Autumn skin tones!
Reviewer: Alisha

The color is called Earth and made me wonder if it was more like brown dirt tones but it is more like a wine color and truly beautiful. I didn't use a filter on the photo, you can see more photos ma.ma.osa if you need to see more since it is difficult to capture the true tone. I highly recommend this color and texture.

I bought 3 yards on sale of Earth color heavy weight. I made a lovely skirt from a new look pattern. It was a dream to sew with. It drapes beautifully, wears wonderfully, and I had 41" leftover to use for something else.

Fabulous color
Reviewer: Elissa

It's not brown, it's not red, it's not purple - it's the best of all three. Rich and elegant enough for dress pants (which I made) but would be great for jeans or a casual jacket. An excellent bottom color for all the warm-toned mid-weights.

So rich and deep and beautiful earthy color!!! I simply adore it!!! I have drawn this beautiful cross-back apron and use this color to sew it. Really, I was a little anxious to sew it using French seam, then top stitched it as jeans, then folding the fabric twice to finish all the edges, but it works great!!! The linen has body, but remains easy to sew. I still use my 11 needle, the 14 or 16 are just too big to pierce the fabric easily and does not help at all in the end. I have presented this new apron with a great cut on my website, lelinquotidien.com (I'm a French person from Quebec, Canada).

This is Paper Theory's pocket skirt pattern in 4C22 Earth. There's not much of a contrast against the wardrobe. Think of Earth as somewhat between a cherry and mahogany wood stain.

I used the 7.1 oz Earth Linen to make the Paola Workwear Jacket. The color shows a bit more "wine" in real life. You can see more of my instagram highlights if needed. I'm very impressed with the free pattern, tutorial on the blog and the finished project. I made a couple alterations to the design to make it fit my preferences and isn't that the beauty of sewing your own pieces!! 10/10 on this color and the pattern.
