Soaring shades of sky blue like ALLURE Linen dominated Paul Cezanne’s late paintings, filling them with the crisp vitality of the Mediterranean coast. By now settled in his home town of Provence, the art Cezanne made in the last decade of his life are now considered his greatest contribution to the history of art, cementing his place as the great father of modern art.
He obsessively painted the Provencal landscape over and over again as a shifting tapestry of pastel blues and sandy beiges, merging sky and ground into one prismatic whole. “I think I could be occupied for months without changing my place,” he observed of Provence, “bending a little more to the left or right.

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).

A most beautiful blue

I have several blues that I've purchased from Fabrics-store these past 10 years, but when I opened the package that contained Allure, I literally gasped aloud. It is the most beautiful I've seen. I was worried that they'd retired the color, but it's back, so I can purchase a few more yards to make a dress. Thank you Fabrics-store for restocking this!

A child's bath robe which is lined with the adorable 'sailors white' cotton percale. Outer fabric is the beautiful medium weight linen in 'allure'!

Toddler dress in this lovely blue linen. Easy ruffled front with eyelet trim. I like this linen because you can wash and hang it up to dry and it looks wonderful. No ironing, unless you really want to! StitchingSweetbyK on Etsy
