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 colour 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.

Reviewer: Asya

Reed is a lovely medium greenish blue and I am enjoying wearing my overalls with all sorts of colors underneath. The fabric doesn't loosen up excessively, hangs GREAT, and was awesome to sew. I like to sit with my knees tucked up under me while I work and it doesn't bag out very much!

Reviewer: Deana

I love this fabric, made Moroccan Capri's and the raglan sleeve top out of it. Love how they came out. This is my first foray into sewing with linen, can't believe I waited this long...

Emilie profile image Beautiful color, a nightmare to cut
Reviewer: Emilie

I'm a novice seamstress, so there might be a better way to handle things than what I know. I purchased several yards of the 4C22 linen in REED: it's a beautiful color, a fantastic linen to the touch. I laundered the fabric, it shrunk some, which was expected, and frayed a ton, also expected. Today, I went to cut it, and spent over 5 hours trying every single sharp tool I own: 2 rotary cutters with brand new blades couldn't cut through it, 3 pairs of sharp fabric scissors barely cut it. Everything I did is wonky because everything moved since I had to try to cut it so many times. Trying to hold it down would cause the fabric to slip... I'll see what the result will be, but I have very little hope it will look good. I was going to purchase another 10 yards to make curtains for my living room with this same color and texture, but after today, I'll look for something else. I'm terribly disappointed. I seem to be the only one with this problem on the site, so this is likely my lack of experience, but it's not changing how I feel about this fabric.

My first order from Fabrics-Store.com and picked up this midweight linen for a cropped Ashton top from Helen's Closet. I love it! Excited as the weather warms up. Hoping this keeps me cool in Colorado.
