n 1891, at the age of 43 years, French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin left his life in Europe for Tahiti, in search of a mystical paradise untainted by the trappings of modernity. The paintings he made here are arguably the most celebrated of his entire career, reflecting the abundant landscape of Tahiti with a rich palette of fresh, bright and tropical greens like JUNIPER , along with dusty mauves, dark blues and bright oranges. His illustrated journals that he made in Tahiti demonstrate his deep fascination for the warm, sunny, vibrant landscapes and deep, oceanic seas that were in sharp contrast with his gritty, urban life in Paris, as he noted, “Little by little, civilization is peeling away.

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).

I see two colors of greens in the garments made up here in Juniper Green. One seems more of a dark Xmas green, two jackets seem much lighter with more blue in it. In reality, which color is this fabric?

Due to the differences in lighting in the photos it can be hard to grasp the color. Our photos are taken and represent the color as best as possible. We recommend getting a sample of the fabric so you can see it in person.

How much shrinkage can one expect--width and length? Will it continue to shrink after 1st wash and dry?

Rebecca • June 9, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

This fabric can shrink up to 7% on the length and width. We recommend pre-washing thoroughly to remove shrinkage, so depending on your machine and wash settings you may have to pre-wash more than once.

Would this weight of linen be appropriate for making aprons? I have used denim, twill and ticking before, but want to try making them out of linen for a more upscale look.

Perfect for aprons and is the most popular choice.

Christmas green

If you want a green for Christmas, this is it. Very green no undertones of anything else. I don't mean it as a bad thing but there is nothing subtle about this color.

Beautiful linen

This linen is so beautiful I love this shade of green. The linen has a great feel and drape for the project I needed it for. Would repurchase and would recommend Fabrics-store.com

I'm a big fan of a pattern with multiple garment options included. I have made the Riva Top multiple times and with different length variations even a dress but today I pulled out the Riva Pattern yet again to make a second pant variation, the shorts! Just as I enjoyed the process of the pants when I made them in heavier 7.1oz Bleached Softened, I have enjoyed the shorts made in this beautiful 7.1 oz Juniper Softened! These feel like the perfect summer resort wear shorts to dress up or dress down your outfit and I'm not even going to a resort.

The linen was a dream to work with! It is the heaviest weight linen that I had sewn- and I love it! Sturdy enough to take a lot of push and pull, but still buttery like any lightweight linen.

I made the Paolo workwear jacket (Fabrics-Store free pattern). Fit is spot on. Love the 4C22 fabric - Wish there were more colors! Made the pattern as is although I added the back yoke & center seam detail.

Lyn • February 5, 2023

Color is slightly less blue in person. Sews up well, but requires careful seam finishing. I bias bound all of the exposed seams on this jacket. This is the most scratchy linen I've worn in a while, but I expect it to soften over time.
