The inky depths of INSIGNIA BLUE linen seeped dark stains into Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai's evocative landscapes, lending them deep bass tones that hum with melodic resonance. The colour, known today as Prussian, or Berlin blue, swept across Europe in the 18th century, causing what some called a "blue fever", as it infiltrated painting, wallpaper prints, stamps and even the Army Uniform for the Prussian military.

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.

Reviewer: Asya

I have so far made the Yanta Overalls from Helen's Closet and the Free Range Slacks from Sew House 7 in different colors of the heavyweight linen, and it's FANTASTIC. Excited to make the Pietra Pants from this color, very accurate to what showed on my computer. A lovely dark serene blue

Reviewer: Anonymous

Nice texture but the low thread count shows. Will do fine for napkins that i bought them for but even that... they feel and look a bit cheap only because the dark blue does indeed bleed and leaves whiter/lighter threads exposed.

Christina profile image Careful, the dye bleeds
Reviewer: Christina

I,m very happy with the color and the texture of this cloth. However, I have run it through the washer seven times, with an extra rinse cycle, and it's still bleeding blue dye. I put a new scrap of white cotton in with each load, and each time I see that the scrap has turned blue. (Less blue than at the start.) I will just have to keep washing this one separately for a while.

The CHARLIE pattern collection came to me at the perfect time. I've been looking for a classic blouse pattern with a twist for the summertime, and the Charlie short sleeve blouse fits the bill. For the top, I used 2 yards of FS APRICOT Midweight Linen in Signature Finish. For the pants, I wanted a little bit more weight and body so I chose FS INSIGNIA BLUE Heavyweight Linen. The softened heavyweight linen has been my go-to fabric for all kinds of garments – especially for bottoms. The linen has the perfect balance between drape and structure that will hold the pleats and cuffs well.

My grandson in his wee Viking tunic made out of Insignia Blue! This was at the Bay Area Renaissance Festival recently. The color is perfect for his Ginger Chunkiness!

This is the back of the 4C22 vest I made. The back panel is fused on and then stitched for stability. The back panel is material from Thailand which I finally have a use for! The 4C22 is a good weight for a vest. Will be ordering more insignia in the future.
