IL019 All-purpose Deep Ultramarine Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
Henri Matisse adored blue. It cropped up in almost all his paintings, not as pale, distant backgrounds, but as bold, punchy, and in-your-face colors like DEEP ULTRAMARINE Linen. Sometimes he sprinkled the color like jewels in amongst a sea of reds, other times allowing brilliant shades of blue to entirely dominate the canvas with a saturated intensity.
He was the ultimate colorist, devoting his life to the creative interplay of decorative hues and tones of his own imagining. “Colour exists in itself”, he observed with curious wonder, “possessing its own beauty.”
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
How does this color compare to Japanese indigo blue. And does it bleed or rub off?
Hello, we recommend getting a sample so you can see it for yourself and compare to some indigo blue you have. We don't find that our blue fabrics have problems with rub off or crocking, that said, it is still a good idea to pre-wash your fabrics separately and thoroughly.
Hi! I was wondering if this is a good substitute for a Royal Blue fabric? I've noticed the Royal Blue is sold out and am looking for a replacement for it. Thank you!
Yes, this is a nice substitute for the royal blue since the mid tone has a lovely rich hue.
Fabric not true to color as in the pictures online. Deep ultramarine is more blue/grey and the vineyard green is not as deep in color either.
THIS is the color I've been looking for- the French blue seen all over in Provence, a perfect periwinkle. Used it to make yet another of my favorite dresses, the Daphnie dress from the Patterns Room. I can't get enough of these luscious linens!
Trying to pick out a clear color from the muddy ones? Here you go. Royal blue with a smidge of royal purple--not ultra clear, but refreshingly clear. This deep blue can still be considered to be conservative even though it is clear and vibrant. I'm looking forward to making linen shirts from this.
Oh my, the color in one to dive into and never come out. Just gorgeous.
This is a brighter shade of royal blue that seems to leap out of the package. The pigment for ultramarine originally came from lapis lazuli (you see it on Egyptian statues and friezes), so it seems like a very pure shade of blue with no admixture of grey or lavender or black. Buy this shade of blue if you like really bright colors.
I love the quality of the fabric and the soft finish. The color stayed as strong after a wash, I can't remember it enough! I've made a Zadie jumpsuit and the fabric was a breeze to sew with. Just one note, it's not a good substitute for cobalt blue, don't get tricked into it. It's a lovely blue but it's not close to cobalt.
