One of the greatest colorists of all time, Pablo Picasso brought radiant yellows like that of EGYPTIAN YELLOW linen into many of his most famous artworks, infusing into them a golden, glowing light.
He loved how golden yellow shades could mimic the luminosity of gold in his paintings, harking back to the great Spanish Renaissance and Baroque traditions that inspired so much of his art.

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).

Beautiful Color

The color of this fabric is the same as the little yellow stars above the reviews! It is a beautiful deep golden yellow. The monitor colors are off, but the word 'Egyptian' gave a good clue as to the golden color.

I swapped this because a friend had accidentally missed that she already had that shade. On screen, it looked like a lighter tint of autumn gold. To my delight, it is definitely buttercup yellow! Lovely color.

My first linen project: I just wanted to share with you all. This is the first time I have made drapes, sewn with linen and used my Baby Lock serger machine for the first time. Just wanted to share with all of you and to thank you

Two yellows both similar both just awesome. They say psychology if you have a bit of yellow in your room it makes you happier. Works for me!
