Ice cold and shot through with mint, the sharp blue of MOONFLOWER linen played a vital role in Pieter Bruegel the Elder's paintings, bringing fresh light into his rippling water and wide-open skies.
A leading painter of the Dutch Renaissance, Breugel pioneered a new brand of genre painting that was larger and more imaginative than ever before, combining Biblical subjects with elements of mythology and everyday life. But the color was the driving force in his work, allowing him to create luminescent scenes that glisten with fresh light.

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 Premier Finish undergoes a two-step process to give the cloth a luxurious, supple feel right out of the box.
First, we apply a softener to give the fabric a silkier surface. Then, strong blasts of air are blown into the woven cloth. This beats up the fibers to make them softer and mimics the fiber bending process that the fabric undergoes when you've used it a lot.
This finishing process gives the fabric a much softer and more luxurious hand. It will be less prone to deep creases and have less linting. Shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration based on the fabric type ( thread size, count, weave type).

Very soft after a few washes
Reviewer: Stephanie

Although this is heavyweight linen (and there is no doubt about this) this fabric becomes very soft after a couple of washes. My Paola jacket and no-side-seam pants feel more like pajamas than workwear. In fact, I would very much recommend this particular linen for cold night pajamas. Cuddly and snuggly.

Lovely color
Reviewer: Jailyn

I was surprised by how beautiful this linen was when I saw it in person. Of course, it's beautiful online, but in person, it's a bit of a softer color with a little more green, but more blue than green. The fabric has more slubs than the normal mid-weight linen, but it just adds to the soft color and texture. It washes beautifully on a normal cycle. I normally hang to dry and tug at the fabric a little to pull out the bigger creases.

Beautiful Linen
Reviewer: Linda

Thank you for having the most beautiful linen that I have gotten. This color is going to look gorgeous on my six month old great niece. I have as yet to start on making the clothes for little Lavender Anne, but hope to get started within the next two weeks. The soft fabric will lay ever so lightly on her, and against her red hair. I will greatly enjoy sewing a wardrobe out of the linen and the colors that I purchased from You. Thank You Sincerely, Linda A.

Folklore Metropolitan hat pattern This color not as heavy as natural color of WC22. Worked well for this floppy hat. I set the creases on the band by steaming. This fabric does what you want.

Gorgeous color, and substantial, yet silky look and feel to this fabric. I made myself a simple open summer dress and wanted to adore it with embroidered pockets. However, the weight of seed beads and all the cotton embroidery threads was too much for my idea. So, I decided to turn my "pockets-that-didn't-happen" into embroidery samples. Just for beauty and sheer joy of creativity sake.

Best Pajamas Ever! FS Paola workwear jacket and Butterick B6851 no side seam pants in heavy weight 4C22 Moonflower Premier Finish. Very soft and comfortable. Warm in cold temps, cool in warm temps. This is the *perfect* fabric for pajamas! I might make the Faye Duster next from this wonderful fabric.

Paola Jacket with large bust alteration in heavy weight 4C22 MOONFLOWER Premier Finish . I still need to find the right buttons for it. This is a pretty good representation of the color.

The fabric is beautiful. I used it to make the Wide Strap Maxi dress from Peppermint Magazine & Elbe Textiles. It sewed up beautifully and even though it's a heavyweight fabric, I was able to sew French seams without bulk. I still have a few sewing problems to fix, but the fabric is really wonderful to sew with.
