IL019 All-purpose Black Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
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 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).

The IL019 in black is one of my basic fabrics to use. Pants I made 3 years ago in Morocco pattern are an everyday favorite. Just made a black woven tee for a customer with it. Can't go wrong with this fabric, maintains its color after many washings and just keeps getting softer.
I purchased this linen to embroider designs for pillows! Love the look and feel of the fabric plus it laundered beautifully!
I buy quite a bit of the linen, mostly in neutral colors to use for machine embroidery designs on pillow covers, tea towels etc. I needed some black for some designs I will be framing. The linen gives a nice matt textured look that I was going for.
This is a very useful and easy to work with fabric. I've made a lot of things with it over the years. Prewash and dry hot to prevent shrinkage on your finished garment.
I've purchased the linen and canvas fabrics first out of curiosity then later because I just love the high quality fabric they sell. I've ordered at least 5 times in the past 2 months. Great products. Looking forward to buying more.
I chose to make the Zina shirt in a softened black linen. The pattern features a dress and shirt version and offers button cuffed sleeves and front pockets. I made the shirt version with two front pockets and added a little extra flair by including buttons on the pockets hems as well. I also shortened the length by 2.5" as I fell just below the lowest size range and knew the shirt would be long on me.
