Our best selling Grey for many years, this slightly faded version brings a vintage vibe to a tried and true color.  ASPHALT linen mimics the tone of Vicken Parson's cool, mid-grey shadows, a color suggesting the concrete pavements, rain soaked bricks and hardened metal of the urban jungle.

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.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

I sewed the Riva pants with this fabric and they are now my favorite pants. The softness of this linen is unparalleled.

Lovely Sheets
Reviewer: Kathi

Love the sheets made for my split King bed - cozy, comfy and durable. Store bought sheets are trashed after a few weeks because of my hubby's tough toe nails but this fabric has taken the test for a couple of months and there is not a snag nor fuzzy at all! I appreciate all the helpful articles and advice that Fabrics-store has available from what type of thread to the type of needle needle for various linens. Even the color number for thread to match the color of linen you have purchased!

Linen Fabric
Reviewer: patricia

I have never ordered from this store and I was a little sceptical, my fabric arrived and it was exactly as described. I made a top and I got many compliments on the color and style. I love it!

Another beauty
Reviewer: Sherry

Everything I have ordered from here has been wonderful. I washed this fabric first and then made a pair of loose fitting, casual overalls. The fabric cuts and sews with ease. Next up will be a simple box tee shirt- again this beautiful color will lend itself perfectly. Thank you for such beautiful fabrics.

Rebecca profile image Unbelievably soft
Reviewer: Rebecca

I was very surprised at the feel of this linen as I unrolled it straight off the bolt. I don't think mine has ever felt this soft pre-washed! I've purchased many rolls of the asphalt, but this is the first time for the Signature Finish. Ahhh!! Lovely, lovely feel to it!!

Tote with silver linen for lining.

Self Drafted Pants made with FS ASPHALT Midweight Signature Finish Linen. These pants have been living in my brainspace for several months and while I tried to put the thought to fabric with indie designer patterns, none of them produced quite what I had in mind. Then, I met Jocie of JocieByHand (her own slow fashion brand) and she had created a pair of pants that were the closest to what I had been imagining all this time. While she wasn't selling the pants or the pattern at the time, she was very generous with her time and shared tips and techniques to try my hand at making my own personal pair.

Riva pants in Asphalt IL019 Signature Finish.

Posting my second top in this fabric! They're so comfy I made two! They go really nicely tucked into my Charlie Shorts.

I made this shirt using the Fabrics-Store Riva pattern. A lovely and soft fabric straight out of the box with the signature finish!

Posted by Lauren

I love the signature finish. It's so light and breathable with a really soft hand thanks to the signature finish. The top is easy to make and adjustable in the sleeves and length, and just two seams and two hems.
