FROTH linen is a pale blush tone reminiscent of a ripening apricot in the white spring sunlight, recalling the luminous flesh tones in French master Edouard Manet's paintings.

As a Realist painter, Manet made the human figure his central focus, whose pale blush tones become visions of light when set against deep, earthy browns and velvety blacks. On constructing his own distinctive, high contrast paintings Manet wrote, “… look for the main light and the main shadow; the rest will come naturally.”

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).

Amazing Color

I absolutely LOVE linen from Fabrics-Store. I purchased this color to make a baby ring sling for a family member. It's beautiful like all the colors I have received, but to me this one is simply stunning. The lightest apricot/peachy color. The color of sunshine! I plan to buy more to make a Nico dress and Zina shirt. Perfect for summer! Would be perfect for sheets or curtains, too. Just beautiful!

Luscious Summer Color

I Love Linen! This was a Doggie bag purchase, in general I shop doggie bags even before looking at sale categories. Best value for seeing a color, in my opinion! Generally at least, always enough for making bias tape which can be used as complementary or contrasting trim! A lightest peach, plan to make several simple tops! Would enhance tanned skin beautifully.
