Evergreen Linen’s deep, rustic green brought intensity and depth into William Holman Hunt’s mythological scenes, whether indoors or out, invoking in them the awe and wonder of the English landscape.
A leader in the Pre-Raphaelite school of painting, Hunt looked back to the innocence of medieval times, when art was more closely tied to the natural world; as a result, his colors and subjects seem to be pulled straight out of the ground. Greens from all shades of the spectrum filled his heady canvases, imbuing them with a rich, mysterious glow.

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.

Lonney profile image Lovely!
Reviewer: Lonney

I always wash linen 3 times on hot water before cutting, in order to allow for shrinkage. I did with this, and there appears to be less shrinkage! It is also obviously great quality. Thank you for your service!

I don't know how they do it, but every piece of linen I have purchased from this company has been, not only elegant for sewing, but astonishing in its beauty. The colors, all of them, are amazing. I go, "Ahhhhh," every time I open a new package. Making a blouse now snd soon will make a Renaissance dress. Don't hesitate. You will love this fabric.

Sergio profile image What a beautiful drape and depth
Reviewer: Sergio

I used this for a medieval dress and honestly I was blown away by the depth of the color. I ended up using the remaining bits to make myself a double breasted waist coat that I also get copious complements on!

Reviewer: Robin

This is beautiful fabric! I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet, but I love the color, hand, and weight of this linen. I bought the soft gray at the same time and am making a guayabera (Mexican shirt) for my husband. It cuts and sews like magic, and received my embroidery and other embellishments like magic too. Very, very happy!

Reviewer: Erin

I love this color of green! It is so deep and really does resemble the evergreen trees around my home. The fabric is soft and works up so well for garb for medieval re-enacting. Thank you so much!

This fabric didn't seem like quite what I was looking for but when the fabric arrived it was EXACTLY the colour I wanted. As with all the other fabric I have bought from this site it was soft and luscious and...okay I just love the linen here. And great colour. :)

I used this fabric for a swordsman shirt in a Renaissance wedding for a friend a few years back. The color is beautiful and has a very subtle blue undertone. It has a sturdy feel and has survived weekend long festivals in Texas for several years now. Great product.

Fabrics-store buyer profile image Wonderful Color!
Reviewer: Anonymous

This color is luscious. The fabric is a good weight for table linens, and it washes beautifully. I am hoping that some pinks will be added to the fabric offerings as well as some very wide linen fabrics for bed linens. The fabric is so wonderful that I would enjoy making a duvet from it.

Evergreen rus pants and "the most comfortable pants I own," according to this client. I've used this linen so many times in so many projects and it always looks and feels great! Fair warning, you'll want to wash it once or twice to prevent color bleeding, but the color stays true after washing.

My viking kit using (IL019) 'evergreen' linen as the base tunic and 'potting soil' as the hangerock, was extremely comfortable to wear, such a nice weight!

I *love* this linen! I paired this with IL019 Royal Purple (front chest piece), IL020 Bleached White (the white part of the back piece), and IL019 Royal Blue ("river" on the back piece). This is made in the style of a 15th Century caparison and it is SO perfect. I lined both the front & back pieces with 4C22 Royal Blue and the flow of it is just perfect. VERY Medieval. The color is vibrant and I couldn't ask for a better linen.
