IL019 All-purpose English Rose Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
ENGLISH ROSE linen's sumptuous, rustic crimson held great spiritual significance during the Italian Renaissance, clothing figures with indulgent drapes that seem to radiate human warmth. World famous Venetian master Titian painted religious, secular and mythological subjects with this gloriously vibrant red tone; given how rare, expensive and potentially toxic the pigment was he placed it sparingly on the canvas, adding intensity and drama around his central and most prized figures. "A good painter needs only three colours," he mused, "...black, white, and red."
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).

Customer Questions and Answers
Would this weight work as casual drapes?
Yes, this is a popular choice for casual drapes :)
Has anyone posted a thread color for this fabric yet?
Mettler Metrosene color 0628 ,Blossom, is an exact match. I also posted a picture.
The color is so interesting and unusual without being at all loud. The linen itself is luxuriously soft and immediately wearable.
I can't wait to make a blouse out of this linen - it's beautiful, as is always the case with Fabrics Store.
This is a beautiful color which goes well with a gown which has a damaged petticoat. Looking forward to working with it.
I washed and pressed the fabric the day I bought, but have not had time to make up yet, and when I do, it will be a Tina Givens pattern. The color is beautiful, and on the cool spectrum, but I think it would be great on most skin tones.
I really love this color and the way it feels next to my skin. Easy to sew and work with.
I designed this vibrant, convertible dress with the intent to play with it all spring and summer. I appreciate pieces that go the extra mile and this dress is such a bold statement that can be played up or down. I see this at everything from weddings to graduations depending on how you style it. Here I am sharing why, how, and the way it's done in 5 different ways. For this project, I chose to use FS ENGLISH ROSE Medium Weight 100% Linen.
