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 radiance.

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).

Three happy people from one order!

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.

Kirsten profile image a neutral to slightly cool brown

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)

Perfect for SCA wear!

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!
