IL019 All-purpose Barn Red Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2), Width 59"
The great American realist Edward Hopper had a remarkable gift for
observation, finding strange intrigue in the most unlikely of places.
Gas stations, late-night bars and quiet buildings tucked away in the
wilderness all take on an enigmatic wonder through his stark,
directional lighting, angular compositions and striking accents of
BARN RED Linen's entrancing shade of red was a color he would explore throughout his career, considering how this bold, seductive hue could bring enticing streaks of juicy color into otherwise muted, pared back scenes and injecting them with the spirit of modernity.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 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).

As usual the quality was great. I used this to make a historical costume circa 1810. It was super easy to work with and the gown looks great. The only issue is that the material I received was distinctly rust colored, not what I would consider barn red. It was basically the same tone as Mecca Orange, only darker. I'm not sure if I just got a bad dye lot or what. Thankfully, it didn't make a difference for this project, but I was a little disappointed.
I've gotten this and the Beet Red as well. They were quite different, and this one definitely matches what I think of a a barn red. Still thinking about how to use this, but wanted to find out for myself. I Love this linen! After I receive package I sort into color groups, prewash and dry. Hot wash, cold rinse, and hot drying guarantees pre shrinking. I add a dye magnet to the laundry load, and use regular detergent. Works great!
I have a continuum of reds that I love, and Barn Red is definitely the favorite. My continuum goes from Mecca Orange (PLEASE RESTOCK!!) -> Barn Red -> Kenya -> Spice; the tones move from decidedly orange quickly to darker brick. All lovely. Barn Red best marries both brick and orange undertones, nothing harsh or loud about it, and incredibly flattering.
My last order included these two colors. On my monitor they we're different colors. Now that I have them they are exactly the same (beet red). Thought one may lighten and redden after washing and drying but nope still exactly the same. ???
Beeswax Food Wraps. The idea occurred to me that these food wraps would be a very cute Valentine Gift with a little card and treat. I have heard so much about these food wraps as a more sustainable option than cling-wrap or plastic wrap for food storage. Typically, it seems like people use cotton more than linen for this project. Here are my thoughts on this: all the natural antibacterial, hypoallergenic and sustainable properties of linen make linen a great choice for me! I used Fabrics-store's Light Pink Softened, Sahara Rose SF and Barn Red 5.3oz as well as the Pink Cotton Gingham 3.6oz and can see that I might have preferred the 3.7 oz for the linens just for the thinner fabric but am still pleased with my project in both linen and cotton.
I used the red + blue fabric to create a very soft raggedy-anne type outfit in my school colors for an art-school graduation. It was so incredibly easy to work with that it's won me over to linen forever, I think! This photo is taken in natural light, so the color seems a bit more washed out than it is in person, but the "IL019 All-purpose Barn Red Softened" is a very rich, vibrant red, leaning just a little more towards rust or scarlet shades. the other fabric here is "IL019 All-purpose Cerulean Softened" which is also mid-weight, very soft, very comfortable. While I made this outfit for my graduation, I ended up wearing my graduation outfit all summer because it was so comfortable. I want to stress that it was very easy to sew all sorts of tricky seams on this fabric—I could press it down with my fingers and it would hold position when sliding it through my sewing machine, but still the fabric stayed soft! It was wonderful to work with.
