COMPLEXION linen is a rich, fleshy tone, backlit with glowing warmth like the blushing skin of a ripe peach. British painter Lucien Freud infused many of his figurative paintings with this warm pink color, particularly his male subjects, infusing them with a deeply intense, hot flush of life.

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).

Lovely linen
Reviewer: Glenna

Unfortunately this color doesn't do my fair complexion any favors. It washes me out. It would look fabulous against a darker skin tone.

Not my best color
Reviewer: Glenna

The fabric itself is wonderful. Too bad it isn't an attractive color for my complexion. It definitely washes me out but would be gorgeous for a person with a darker skin tone. The color is true to my monitor and I should have known better than to select it for a garment.

This color and weight is gorgeous! Sews like a dream, washes like a dream, and has a great hand. Love the open high-low jacket with trumpet sleeves I made from it

I ultimately decided to do the Tamarack Jacket by Grainline Studios, its a nice pattern for these chilly days ahead in the PNW. I did a quilted body with IL019 SANGUINE Softened middle linen, IL019 COMPLEXION Softened middle linen and cotton quilt batting. The feeling of the quilted linen is divine. The binding is all self-made with the same fabric and hand sewn onto the garment. I went with the two shades of pink because I wanted something fun as well as functional. So much of my wardrobe is black, white and cream – I needed a little color and took this opportunity to do that!

Love this color!

This color is so beautiful and the weight is so perfect for my dress design. I think it's bit darker than the example shows on my screen but that is a positive thing in my opinion.
