AGAVE Linen's cold, watery green flowed through Edgar Degas' paintings, illuminating grassy banks, cafe scenes and private interiors with the fresh sheen of Parisian light. Though his subjects were hugely varied, Degas' paintings pivoted around moments of suspended tension, from racehorses to jittery dancers and precariously balanced nudes. Silvery green tones helped him invest this mysterious, magical spark of vitality into his artworks, allowing them to bristle with nervous excitement.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

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).

This is a really gorgeous color. I've used this color again and again for projects for my Etsy shop (CalendulaHandmade) because of the great quality of this linen. My latest purchase is for 3 lumbar pillow covers for my sister's new living room couch. I'll be hand printing a new block print design I created to go with her living room decor.

Gorgeous Color

This color is absolutely gorgeous, and as usual the fabric is lovely to work with. Maybe that is why it is out of stock so often. Please bring it back!

My favorite FS color

This fabric is perfectly named - It is truly is the color of agave. The soft, cool, almost neutral green color, the perfect weight and drape... This fabric is becoming my "go to."

This is one of my favorite F/S colors. A lovely grayed blueish green that goes well with so many other colors. I'm about to make 5 pillows for my sister with this color, 3 of which will have my own design block printed in a lighter shade of this color on them.

Agave Mid Weight Linen fabric

This fabric was absolutely amazing and I wanted to make sure that I made something that I would absolutely wear all of the time. What's crazy is that at first I really didn't like the pattern, it was only until I wore it a couple of times I realized I was absolutely in love and I'm so happy that I was able to use the super soft linen, as its definitely an every day wear.

Burda (Paper) pants pattern with peasant blouse in light blue IL019. Fabric was a dream

The Etoile Dress is a flirty little sundress that is quite simple, but so effective. With its deep V-neck that shows just the right amount of cleavage, darts in front and back and flattering princess seams, it perfectly defines your silhouette and adds a touch of femininity. Cute details include front buttons and gathered short sleeves adorned with self-fabric ties. We made our version in our beautiful IL019 AGAVE Softened Medium Weight linen.
