The inky depths of INSIGNIA BLUE linen seeped dark stains into Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai's evocative landscapes, lending them deep bass tones that hum with melodic resonance.
The color, known today as Prussian, or Berlin blue, swept across Europe in the 18th century, causing what some called a "blue fever", as it infiltrated painting, wallpaper prints, stamps and even the Army Uniform for the Prussian military.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 58 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.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.

As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

This color is close to a dark denim blue, but since denim comes in a range of shades, perhaps you may like to order some sample swatches of our blues to help you find the color you are imagining. Here is a link to all of the blues we have on this base in stock: fabrics-store.com/all-fabrics?article=IL019&color=Blue

Color comparison, all prewashed hot/dried. LEFT: IL020 Handkerchief Mediterranean Blue Softened - 100% Linen - Light (3.7 oz/yd2) MIDDLE: DB IL019 All-purpose Blue Bonnet Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2) RIGHT: DB IL019 INSIGNIA BLUE FS Signature Finish 1.50 yards DB IL019 All-purpose Insignia Blue Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2) Blue Bonnet and Insignia are almost indistinguishable in indoor light to me, though it is slightly darker. All three are gorgeous shades.

I made this for my wife, but it's for her birthday so she hasn't seen it yet. I really, really hope she likes it.
