The damp, earthy green of DUSTY LOTUS Linen brought shadowy depths into John Constable's windswept landscapes, lending them the fresh coolness of the British countryside.
Glowering, tempestuous skies hang over his brooding scenes, while the land below ripples in and out of the light, shifting from sunlit leaves to moody, cold shadows. Shifting patterns of light across land and sky fascinated him for his entire career, as he observed, “… let the form of an object be what it may – light, shade and perspective will always make it beautiful.”

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 58 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.

Customer Questions and Answers


In two of the photos of completed projects the color appears more olive, and in the other two it has a little more blue. Can you tell me which is the more accurate color?

The photos where the fabric appears more green is accurate representation of the fabric in natural light.

I was curious what thread matches this well. I was looking at your blog and saw you recommend Gutterman? Thanks a bunch! Excited to get started!

Hello! One of our customers used Gutermann Sew-All thread color #765 and found it to be a great match!

Is the color slightly darker in person than the Softened version of Dusty Lotus?

The colors are the same in person for both finishes. Any variation in color would be due to different dye lots, rather than the finish.

I love this fabric. The color was spot on and I'm looking forward to a new pair of pants sewn up in this wonderful weight. I was worried it might be too heavy for my project as it has an elastic waist but this is thin enough without being too thin or see through.

Love this color! And the fabric is so soft and wonderful to work with! I will be back for more!

The Fabric Store Sol pattern is beautiful, including pants, a "cardigan," and a tunic. I was immediately drawn to the sophisticated collar and cuffs on the tunic and cardigan. I chose a signature finish, medium-weight linen in Dusty Lotus. This moody grey/green will integrate well into my wardrobe.
