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

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!

1L019 Blue Heaven softened for my Viking Apron dress and coif. Tutorial by Annie Brahe for the apron dress, self drafted for the coif.

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.
