4C22 Rustic Reed Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2), Width 57"
Moody, sombre and filled with suspense, the silvery blue tone in REED linen was entrancing for British painter Walter Richard Sickert, allowing him
to convey scenes lit by a soft, diffused light. From the murky waters
and metallic skies of Venice to delicate, intimate interiors, Sickert
conveyed a spectrum of subjects with this color throughout his career,
filling his work with a quiet, ghostly sense of anticipation.
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 love wearing this linen. It is easy to sew, once you get the hang of it. It finally went on sale so I could get this color. Seems much bluer in the outside light, dustier color than appears. Love shopping with Fabrics-store.com. Excellent customer service.
4C22 Reed is a wonderful color. Used two yards to make a large bath sheet. Linen dries so much quicker than terry cloth towels.
I made oversized trousers for a sit-down comfort, relaxed look WITH contrast pockets. Nice drapey yet neat look and the pockets fit my cellular. No place for a pic or I'd send one.
Hi! you can always email us your photo and we can add it on your behalf :)
Dress no. 1 from 100 Acts of Sewing in Reed. So comfortable. Great drapes and i can just toss it in the wash when i need to. Great everyday type of dress, with POCKETS
the color is identical to the color on the site. It's a gorgeous dusty blue. my only complaint? I wish I ordered more of it when it was on sale. hehe
The heavy weight linen in Blue Bayou was even better than I expected. The color was perfectly consistent throughout and it was easily manageable in the sewing process. It forms crisp lines when pressed and I barely used any pins or clips because it doesn't slide around when going through the machine. I have worn these pants several times without needing to wash them. They hold up well in the wash and they have that glorious rumpled texture after laundering. I love this fabric.
