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.

Mine faded to a mica color

I was really surprised by how much my black signature fabric faded compared to the photos of other reviewers. I washed it once in cool water with plant based detergent, rinsed twice and did one more wash cycle in cool without detergent and one rinse. I dried it until only damp on a low setting. Not sure how to keep that rich black color. I love the quality of fabrics-store linen, but I think I will stick with colors that won't matter to me if they've faded.

Wonderful!!!!

This fabric is absolutely beautiful. I washed and dried it fully on hot prior to using so it would shrink (if any) prior to my sewing my dress. Absolutely the softest, flowiest fabric for a dress. Love it!!

I used this fabric to make my first slip cover. It was a delight to work with the fabric and I'm so pleased with how it turned out. The fabric is super soft and drapes so nicely. Love this fabric and love the color!

Made what I thought was a little black dress but it's too short so it's going with some black leggings and black boots I have!
