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).

Beautiful color
Reviewer: Michele

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!
Reviewer: Lisa

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!

Almost the same color as IL019 Black Forest
Reviewer: Suzanne m

This is a deep rich color. Somewhere between the web colors of dark olive green, and dark green. I believe it would commonly be referred to as hunter green, seconding the above review (I copied and edited the beginning text from my other review for Black Forest). Almost a direct match to the IL019 Black Forest.

Beautiful dark green
Reviewer: Kathleen

The IL019 is a beautiful green, very similar to Ralph Lauren Hunter Green, more blue than yellow as greens go. The weight is perfect for clothing, bedding, tablecloths, napkins, you name it! I plan to make a gathered box spring cover, but who knows? I may have to wear this!

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. You can read more about working with the Devin pattern here:

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.

I made this medieval dress for the Maryland Renaissance Festival. I love the hand of this particular linen, it is very flowy, but does not warp after being worn. It has a lovely colour, with blue undertones, and paired very well with my blue wool cloak.

This was a set made from emerald ILO19 linen for my sister's 48" round dining table....a 60" tablecloth that I put a 3" crocheted edge around to make it a bit bigger and a bread cloth with a 1 1/2" crocheted edge. I also made 8 napkins for this set with narrower 3/4" crocheted edges. The white "fruit" embroidered "topper" (from a kit) matches my sister's Italian dinnerware. This linen was just the right weight for all these table linens and the emerald color looks great with her greenish slate floor tiles.

A 14th century liripipe hood, lined with your Emerald (softened) linen. It's sooooo soft, thank you!

I was "Liz Taylor as Cleopatra" for Halloween 2005. I made this dress with the medium weight linen in emerald. It turned out beautifully.

These are examples of shirts in IL019. My work is sold on consignment at an East Coast Renaissance Fair.

The green shirt on the right was made using IL019 Emerald, a 5.3oz/yard fabric. My customer absolutely loved the texture and color of this fabric. Incidently, he also won the ground combatives part of the Utah Ren Faire.
