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 57 inch wide 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.

My first time sewing with 4C22. I like it a lot - made a coat I can wear in the winter in the south. I shortened the FS free pattern Mara painter's coat 12", eliminated the breast pocket & vent, and sewed with French seams. Pattern and instructions (tutorial) are great!

Love this color Reed. Love this 7.1 weight for winter. It handles so well to sew. I am so glad there is a place to buy quality linen at lesser pricing. Their customer service is very personal, they work at having happy customers.

I fashioned this jacket after one I purchased in Greece. I love the way the fabric feels, handles, looks and sews.

Great color and weight for a linen coat. I used Simplicity pattern 8554. I love the way it turned out. Great for Spring or Fall.

The Sara Pleated Pants ( made in Reed heavyweight) is our modern take on the classic pleated pants style. Designed to sit on your natural waist, It has two small pleats at the front, back darts for shaping, useful hip pockets, a zipper front fly and belt loops. The legs are slightly tapered and hit right above the ankle bone. You can find the sewing tutorial and pattern PDF here: blog.fabrics-store.com/2021/02/04/sara-pleated-pants-tutorial/
