GINGER Linen's rich caramel shade filled Kurt Schwitters's art. Made from the ephemera of his daily life in 1920s Germany, almost anything could be thrown into the mix in torn scraps of color and texture.
Through his endlessly complex designs, pushing back and forth in a bid for our attention, the prismatic arrangements of natural, near flesh tones seemed somehow inherently linked to the human experience. Uniting them was the golden-brown of Ginger which created an overriding mood of warmth and familiarity.

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).

This is not Ginger

I'm not trying to match the linen I bought with anything soI suppose I'll use what I got, but I was really looking forward to a fabric that was ginger colored. This is brown. It's just brown. It doesn't even pretend to be close to "ginger". I guess I should have read more reviews. It appears I am not alone in my disappointment.

Nice color

When I ordered this fabric, I was hoping for more of a mustard color. It's not mustard, but has more brown in it. But still, it's a wonderful color! It made into a beautiful apron. (but still hoping for a true mustard:)

Beautiful color

This color coordinated with a paisley linen to make a linen quilt! Love the softened quality.

Beautiful fabric and wonderful color.

I did ask for a sample before I ordered this fabric, With that tiny piece of fabric, I knew it was perfect for my project. I'm excited to get started and know i will be purchasing more in other colors for all the projects that came to mind after receiving and handling this fabric.

This is not ginger

Let me preface this by saying I love the look and feel of this linen. However, the color is NOT ginger; it's more akin to cocoa powder, with the barest, often unnoticeable hint of gold, and only in some light. This is not the first shipment I've gotten that is very, very different than the swatch online. A couple of months ago I got a beautiful turquoise...that ended up being a light medium blue. As much as I hate the wait of getting a fabric swatch, I highly recommend it, if color matters. My vision of a ginger colored light overcoat are currently undergoing a massive adjustment in my psyche. (BTW, the three stars are solely because of the color variance from both the swatch and description.)

Some of my favorite fabric to hand-sew with has been FS Heavyweight Linen for my Free Range Slacks. The fabric is sturdy in hand but soft to the touch and to wear.

This outfit is my definition of comfortable, stylish, and practical. My perfect uniform! With my love for minimalist clothing and earthy tones, I think the combination of the patterns and fabric works really well. The pants are Magda linen pants made in Ginger - their free pattern is here : blog.fabrics-store.com/2017/07/13/crisp-linen-pants-tutorial/

The kimono style jacket here is made from this heavy weight ginger linen- so lovely, weighty, yet draped and breathable. Soft flexible fabric but heavy enough to not add a lining.
