The misty turquoise of BLUE HEAVEN Linen defined the art of 19th century French Symbolist Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, forming distant mountains, hazy shadows or endlessly entrancing blue water.
When France was facing political turmoil after the Franco-Prussian War, Puvis' mystical, icy blue scenes suggested a a wondrous, escapist world beyond our own to disappear into. His pared back color schemes and clean, pure lines are the essence of sophisticated refinement, for which he argues, "the simplest conception proves to be the most beautiful."

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.

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).

Love it
Reviewer: Carrie

The 2nd time I've ordered this IL019 linen and I'll probably be ordering other colors too. I ordered extra so I could make an infinity scarf with frayed edges and it turned out beautifully. It keeps it's fluffiness while you wear it so it stays fluffy around your neck, plus it gives warmth while being lightweight and breathable. Also made a tunic.

I purchased a bolt of this lovely medium-light blue linen last summer, for an 18th century reenactment event that takes place at my dad's childhood home. It was the perfect color and weight for my new shortgown and petticoat, neither a wimpy baby blue nor the royal blues that I tend to gravitate toward. Now I'm using more of it for a Viking serk I'll wear in the SCA, and then I'll use some for a fitted undergown for under a côtehardie, also in the SCA. I hope you still have it when I run out!

Another big fan!
Reviewer: Cindy

This color is gorgeous BUT also perfectly suited for boys. No matter how I drape it, it takes on the persona of its utility. It reminds me of indigo. Wrap it around you and cinch it with an old leather belt and it looks like faded denim but drape it over white lace and it's a beautiful turquoise-y color. Everybody should snag some for themselves, just to play with. It's just an amazing color.

Reviewer: Heather

I used this linen to make a Geranium Dress for a friend's 2 year old daughter. It was a dream to work with and I am in love with the color.

This linen is a very versatile weight like all IL019 linens. The blue is lovely but it is different in person, more aqua. If you need a very specific color, get a sample.

I love this color blue. As I stated in a review for the Asphalt colorway in same linen, it washes well, does not wrinkle like most linen, and is just the perfect weight for any clothing, including pants.

very relaxing color!
Reviewer: Julie

I will be using this linen and other pieces I have purchased to make pillow cases for our guest bed. I really enjoy sewing by hand and by machine and using this fabric because it behaves so beautifully. Thanks.

The perfect medium blue
Reviewer: Valerie

Making baby carriers, the perfect tone of blue can be elusive. This has enough grey to tone down what would otherwise be "Baby" Boy Blue while still being blue enough that it's not mistaken from grey. When Ethereal blue was discontinued, I was very disappointed. But now having switched to this almost wedgewood color of blue, I've decided I like this even better

Shipping was prompt, color was exactly as pictured, the quality is excellent, and the more I wash it, the softer it gets! Will definitely be purchasing more soon!

Reviewer: Savanah

This linen is perfect for making ring slings and the color pictured is mostly accurate but a little darker and muted than the actual linen. Perfect linen for Roanoke Ring Slings!

Color is beautiful
Reviewer: Myrna

Haven't sewn this up yet but it is just gorgeous fabric. The color is beautiful and the hand is firm without being stiff. Don't know what I am going to make from it yet

I've gotten so much use out of the dress I made with this beautiful linen, it has seen many battles, and it is coming to pieces now after two years, wearing thin and getting holes quickly. I've been patching it with the scraps I saved, but it might be time to order some more BLUE HEAVEN...

Blue Heaven, 5.3 oz. About a week for delivery. I overcast the cut edges together then wash & dry hot several times to shrink & de-lint. Press it a bit, jine line it up square with itself & keep it lined up together with itself when you see. I pin away from the edge an inch plus. I also overcast edges after cutting & flatfell or similar the seams.

Love this color and it is so soft once washed a couple times.

Lovely fabric to make this 30s style dress with, skirt cut on the bias gives a beautiful drape. The sleeves and belt are made of the sheer grey mist linen, which works really well with the colour of the blue haven.
