Vibrant, seductive and indulgent, crimson linen's entrancing hue brought pulsing lifeblood into Jan Van Eyck's iconic paintings. Red dye was rare and exotic in 15th century Europe, making it a potent symbol of luxury, wealth and prominence. In his real life portraits Van Eyck draped figures and interiors in this decadent red hue to signify their high society status, while his religious commissions tapped into red's ancient significance with spiritual characters bathed in glowing cardinal reds.

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.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

The traditional colors for Christmas outfits are white, red and green. I love these colors and try to use them for sewing clothes! I always use medium-weight linen, although I also really like linen fabrics of different weights, but I tend to use them for other purposes.
