The deep, inky tone of ROYAL PURPLE linen has the warm intensity of a dwindling sunset as the light fades into shadow. This time of day was a favorite with painter Paul Signac, who saw deep purple tones in the shadows around him as the golden sun of his native France began to sink downwards to the ground.

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).

Beautiful linen

Love this heavier weight linen, gorgeous colour. Great service, only complaint is I wish the postage was way cheaper internationally.

I love your softened linen for clothing. I am an indie clothing artist and would like to be able to forward fabric suggestions to my clients. Could you set up a forwarding email link in the store

Magnificent color

The rich, vibrant color of Royal Purple is so much warmer and "alive" - better than the swatch posted above. Extremely soft, great for apparel. I never want to take it off.

stitch edges

I love the color, I love the fabric and the way it feels. Have not made anything yet because I have no jacket pattern. Jackets are my favorite to make. My only suggestion is; because this is linen, it needs to be stitched along the edges before washing to prevent fraying. This one has many frayed edges that need to be removed and the fabric squared before it is useable.

The look of linen

I absolutely love the stylish, elegant look but easy care of linen. The fact that this is in purple just kicks it way up!

4C22 Royal Purple Softened makes a fantastic face mask. Linen is breathable, fashionable, and some studies show it to be great at filtration. See this carefully handcrafted mask at: maidencalifornia.etsy.com

Fantastic linen. Worked fabulously on this vintage hat. Quality fabric.

Made an '80's boyfriend jacket... don't really love the style, but the fabric is super easy to sew, drape and mold into the shape you want it to be. This color though... I would consider it to be more of a lovely Plum that a royal purple, but that just might be my opinion!

This is my Viking over dress that I made using the purple linen along with Optic white (4C22) for the under dress and the black (IL019) for the apron.

Used this fabric to make a tunic to wear over my armor. Absolutely love it! Great weight and feel. This is by far the BEST purple I have found in linen. It is just gorgeous. A true purple. Not too blue and not too red.
