Darkness pervades Tacita Dean's artworks, falling over craggy rocks and epic mountains into inky, bottomless wells. BLACK Linen shares Dean's endless black, a colour that intensifies mystery and drama, cloaking and concealing everything it touches.

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.

Beautiful apparel weight linen
Reviewer: Alina

I plan to use this to make many outfits! This is real, high quality linen. The mid-weight shrinks and becomes more opaque after washing, so I may not even need lining. A true, deep black color, not charcoal or grey. The fabric was sent quickly and well packaged.

Dream linen
Reviewer: Vasquez

I have purchase several yards of different kinds of linen from this website, but this was the first time I went for Signature Finish and OH MY GOD I am never going back to any other finish. First of all this fabric is extremely soft to touch and it wears like a dream. I had a black dress made which fit great, and despite being in a hot and humid weather I managed to stay cool. On top of that, this linen does not wrinkle! I am so impressed I have never worn linen that doesn't wrinkle before. I only wish there were more colors and prints for this linen.

Multi Purpose Beauty!
Reviewer: A

There's a Lot you can do with this Gorgeous Black (I think of Stream-lined) Staple! First thing came to my mind is a Fitting Cassock for the Priest! Haven't seen one made of Linen in a long time. There is a "Stateliness" to Linen. Unmistakable Beauty with Durability. What a Great Idea! Thank you Fabrics-store! Such a Gift from God (through Mr Karpushin if I understand correctly) is this Wonderful Linen Store!!!

Just Received!
Reviewer: Betty

I just received my black linen...at first I thought this is awfully thin; but then though no when washed it will thicken up and it's the perfect weight for summer. I want to make a skirt and short jacket and when they are lined I just know they will be great!

Best Linen!
Reviewer: Jessica

This is my first Linen purchase from Fabric store and I am SO pleased!! The weight is perfect and can be lined or not. The quality is superb, washes well and the color seems to last (so far). I have made the Nico Dress and the Luna dress using this linen and I wouldn't choose anything else. I am looking forward to many more fabric purchases.

Exceptional
Reviewer: Maryjo

Just received my order of 5 yards IL019 Black FS Signature finish. Serged the ends and threw it in the washer then dryer, expecting to take it out of the dryer damp to smooth it out... ran the full cycle by mistake and when I opened the dryer door it was fully dry and wrinkle free. It is gorgeous. I was going to back a quilt with it but changed my mind to make gorgeous napkins. i cannot believe how beautiful the finish is... no black dye came out in the washer also, so it is perfectly deep black. I LOVE YOUR FABRIC I do not even need to put an iron to this fabric. it also came out of the dryer perfectly on grain, which is spectacular.

Crossover Top by Kayla Kennington
Reviewer: Regina

It took two yards of this linen to make this top. I pre washed it and dried it in a hot drier with minimal wrinkles and a medium amount of off limiting. Beautiful drape on this top. I love the weight. The seams frayed a bit, so I had to hand hem each one or flat fell it or make a French seam, depending on where the seam is. I have 4 more yards so I plan on some loose pants and another blouse.

Beautiful fabric, I now love linen
Reviewer: George

I am a lover of all things elastic and stretchy, but have recently started using linen in my sewing journey and projects. I absolutely love it. I also like cotton, but cotton is not my favorite since it will break down a lot over time. Linen lasts longer and seems to hold up better to multiple washes and gets better, not worse, the more its washed. I also started hand sewing and this is PERFECT for that. Highly recommend this product. Depending on how fast i get through this bolt, I will most likely order nore in the future!!!

Luxurious
Reviewer: Jane

I love this fabric! I bought a small amount for an embroidery project but I'm tempted to drag out my old machine and order more for a dress! It feels sooo good! It's a perfect weight, feels incredibly soft, and after handling it for weeks on my embroidery hoop, the edges are hardly wrinkled. What more could you ask for?

I was very excited to make something more feminine and elegant to wear this summer, namely the Fabrics-store's LOREN dress, which I fell in love with the moment I saw it! I decided to use one of my favorite FS linens – FS BLACK Signature Finish Midweight Linen - with its hot-washed soft texture, beautiful drape and the perfect opacity, I knew it would be ideal for the kind of dress I wanted – something comfortable and easy, but also chic and elegant at the same time.

The dress does drape so beautifully. As always, we are also delighted with the feel of the FS Black Signature Finish Linen. I am sure I will be making more Nico Dresses and Tops in the future.

Again my favorite dress from Simply Modern Sewing. My most comfortable every day garment. It went together in a snap. This linen is a marvel. I made the interfacing with yellow Sulphur and added buttons for show. It's a throw over you head and go dress.

Posted by Carla

Wonderful to sew with and soft on the skin. I use this linen for everything!

Posted by Roxanne

This linen is the perfect weight for a flowy pinafore style apron that can be gathered up for an afternoon in the chicken coop or the orchard! etsy.com/countrymousecityhous
