Dense networks of green unfurl across Henri Rousseau's tropical paradise, coloring grasses, plants and leaves with the juicy vibrancy of life. But with the richly enigmatic jewel tone of EMERALD Linen he creates mysterious pockets of darkness, where magic and danger lurk in the shadows.

Rousseau never left France, so his mystical jungle scenes are entirely imagined, but he made frequent visits to the Parisian hothouses, the natural history museum and the zoo, places that lit up his imagination with visions of another time and place. Describing the transformative power of the Parisian gardens he wrote, "When I step into the hothouses and see the plants from exotic lands, it seems to me that I am in a dream."

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).

Elizabeth profile image Lovely green

If I was to name this green I would call it Evergreen because it leans towards blue green. Emerald, to me, has more yellow in it which I don't see here and is also lighter. This is a dark green. It's a BEAUTIFUL color and just what I needed to make a skirt to go with a top I planned to wear to a party before m y nephew's wedding. I think this color will get even more beautiful as it is washed over time. As always, F/S got my order to me quickly and I couldn't be happier.

Beautiful color

I have washed this with minimal shrinkage. Purchased this fabric to make a longhunter shirt for my husband as a Christmas present. The color is perfect (Roger's Rangers Green). Can't wait until he sees it!!!

Can't say enough about this beautiful linen. Has a lovely soft feel, wonderful drape. The color is gorgeous! I made a dress with a matching ribbon with the harvest orange linen and it turned out literally regal. Will be getting more!

I'm not a lover of green but it happens to be a good color for me. I took a chance and ordered this one. I'm so happy I did! The weight and texture is wonderful. The color is really nice. I am very happy with this fabric.

Lovely linen!

This is a gorgeous color, however, it is not emerald green at all. It is a deep gray green with some blue undertones. I think this color would be more aptly named "Juniper" and the color FS actually calls "Juniper", should be named "Emerald". Other than that, this linen is divine!

If you are familiar with my story, you might know how making one garment usually leads to making three since I have two grown daughters who usually want in on the fun. I did indeed end up making three Devin sets. The first with this beautiful FS Emerald Softened Midweight Linen and then two sets in Rifle Paper Co cotton florals. All three turned out amazing and have us ladies delighted with our new lounge wear.

Very nice shade of green. Weight and texture makes it lovely to wear.

Emerald middle-weight linen. So comfortable! I used the free half-sleeve linen dress pattern available here, and it worked beautifully. I have my new casual "go-to" dress.
