IL019 All-purpose Biking Red Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
Coloring flowers, ribbons, veins and pulsing hearts, the iridescent crimson in BIKING RED Linen is the lifeblood of Frida Kahlo's paintings. Echoing the tinge of red in the Mexican flag, this shade came to represent many forces in Frida Kahlo's deeply introspective paintings, but a unifying theme was a love for her native Mexico, which she bound tight into the core of her art.
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).

Customer Questions and Answers
Ranae posted a young girls dresss. Is that one of your patterns? I'd love to make one for my great granddaughter!
This dress is not one of our patterns.
I have purchased Biking Red in this medium weight several times in the past several years. It's the perfect red for meâ€”not too orange and not too bright. I've made a pair of shorts, a simple dress and a jacket. The fabric was easy to sew and is the ideal weight for three seasons of my Northern California weather. Thank you Fabrics-Store.com for such wonderful fabric!
This is such a rich and beautiful red. No color change after first wash. The drape is lovely and the feel is nice and heavy instead of floating away and feeling cheap. Will repurchase!
I made two costumes for the 2021 season of the Kentucky Highland Renaissance Faire out of the Biking Red IL019 and the rose jacquard that is no longer available. It washed and ironed like a dream.
i wear mostly cool tones and red is often a bit much on me- my husband and i compromised with Biking Red. coordinates well with rich browns, Eggplant, Evergreen, and most rich blues. it has a slight blue tone, and a slightly dulled/brown tone, but is still definitely in the red group.
I have always loved linen and your fabric is awesome. This is my third or fourth order and I am never disappointed. This red is gorgeous and I can't wait to start on a new project.
Here is the sleeveless blouse from the Charlie pattern collection in the Biking Red middle weight linen. Loved making it so much that I immediately made it again using some Royal Blue middle weight linen I had on hand! Also pictured are the Cass wide legged culottes (free download pattern!) In bleached signature finish middle weight linen. Great patterns, excellently written with superb instructions.
