IL019 EXCALIBUR Softened - 100% Linen - Middle (5.3 oz/yd2)

Price: $10.75 per yard
Favored By: 582 people!

A classic medium shade of grey that is reminiscent of fresh, wet cement. Not a blue-grey like you'd expect, but rather a new take on a beloved shade.

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.

Cindy profile image Stunning!
Reviewer: Cindy

This beautiful fabric has soft purple undertones, giving a lovely new look to the grey colourway. Unlike a blue based grey, the purple hues create a warmer tone. It's the first time I've run across this shade, and it is truly stunning! It's definitely not an "in your face" obvious purple, but rather the purple is a subtle undertone. I think I may need more!

Reviewer: Maria

This is my favorite gray so far, it reminds me of gun metal, changing color from cool deep steel to delicate lavender hinted silver depending on light. Love it!

Erin profile image Not gray!
Reviewer: Erin

I ordered this and was a little confused because, though it was beautiful fabric, it was definitely BLUE and not gray. I didn't realize it fully until I had washed it. It was nice so I still sewed some stuff up with it :) definitely a lighter blue that looks close to "blue bayou" or "blue heaven." Just a warning, because this is absolutely NOT a gray.

I used this to make an apron. This fabric was easy to work with and becomes so soft after washing.

Vickie profile image A great color!
Reviewer: Vickie

I love all the linen I've purchased here, and there have been many! But this is my favorite gray of them all, rich, deep and can have a very formal or casual look, depending on the pattern used. I made a wide legged pant with a cuff, but can really imagine this as a casual menswear jacket. just beautiful! As always the il019 never disappoints and this linen seemed to be a particularly smooth and finished product, with very little slubs, a truly refined linen. Sewed like a dream and again I cannot say enough about this color. If you are a lover of linen and gray, you have to give this color a try!
