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 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).

Linen colors

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.

Gorgeous French Ultramarine!

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!

Cool, clear, and vibrant

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.

The color to my eyes

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.

Men's shirt Butterick B6841 in IL019 Deep Ultramarine. This has been hot washed twice to stabilize the dye (it bleeds quite a bit at first.) My son loves it.

Tudor Blouse by Stitch Witch Patterns made with DEEP ULTRAMARINE Midweight Linen worn with Deima Patterns Ribbed Trousers. The pattern actually asks for buttons instead of a zipper, but why not take on a little challenge. You can read more about this project here:
