IL019 All-purpose Chocolate Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
Warmth permeates Rembrandt van Rijn's paintings as golden, syrupy candlelight falls and disappears into velvet brown shadows. CHOCOLATE
linen mirrors the earthy and enveloping darkness in Rembrandt's
paintings, which swarms around the light and gives it torch lit
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).

Customer Questions and Answers
I use a lot of dark brown and every time I buy it it's a slightly different color. I guess they could all be called chocolate, but most are milk chocolate, not dark chocolate, except for once when I actually did get the dark chocolate brown I wanted. The fabrics have all been really nice and held up pretty well, but I do wish I could depend on a deep, rich chocolate brown when I order. No doubt I'll get more at some point just because I find having a brown dress to be intensely practical, but I hope the color will be like a bar of the darkest, finest chocolate you can buy. This is personal preference, of course. If the color could be standardized perhaps two chocolate browns could be offered?
I made three matching underdresses for Medieval reenactors. Keyhole necklines , sleeve cuff and hem trim in Autumn Gold. Next will be embroidered details. Apron dresses will also be in Autumn Gold with coordinated embroidery.
I love this fabric! I made a pair of overalls with it. It was easy to sew, feels soft and is comfortable to wear.
very dark brown. coordinates well with Potting Soil. this is "warm" like all browns, but definitely on the cooler side (potting soil is much warmer) and can be worn by people who favor cool tones. it coordinates well with Insignia Blue, Evergreen, Eggplant and Biking Red (i had samples of those to work with)
I made a baby T-tunic with keyhole neckline for my son, leaving generous seam allowances and tucking up extra into the sleeve and hem for him to grow into. The washability of this weight of linen is perfect for baby/toddler garb, and the color is rich and lovely. I used Verdant green to make a contrast keyhole neckline
I have always loved linen fabric, from a men's suit to the linen cloths on the dinner table. I will wear linen year round as along as the colors match my personal palette for the season. This Fall I selected a skirt from Vogue Patterns (#1639), a garment that's deceiving on the package, but an easy make and FS CHOCOLATE Mid Weight linen is the perfect fabric to use. The skirt has definition and flow and the linen shows up rich in color and weight. The skirt has a nice yoke that compliments the waist and makes a pair of boots jealous.

Absolutely in love with this chocolate brown. I buy all my linen from fabrics-store for making all of my SCA Viking garb. The linen is the most amazing quality for the price I have been able to find and is always very true to color swatch. The trousers featured are created from the 4C22 Heavy Weight Black linen. I love that you can order swatches as well. It is very soft yet sturdy and durable and does not fade after many washes. Also, if you have an account you can rack up credit points and if you wait for a sale it's definitely a bonus!
