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 colour, 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 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.

Hi! I think that was a packing error with the warehouse - they should always send duplicates if the order was for duplicates. I am going to create a replacement order for you ( free of charge of course). No action is required from you, call me if you have questions 866-620-2008

This linen has a lovely hand and the color is more than navy blue - it has a depth and beauty to it that sets it apart.

Reviewer: Kathryn

I love this color! It's a step away from my beloved purples but it's time to try something different. It's elegant, cool to wear, and will last for years. I'm excited to make a 14th century cotehardie with it!

Reviewer: Michael

This fabric has a beautiful hand, great go-with color, and is durable when worn. I use this, and the other linen like it, to make 18th century petticoats and aprons for our ladies at a history museum. They like it because it drapes well, is easy to keep wash and is comfortable indoors and out. Prewash fabric and dry hot, then iron before cutting out and sewing.

Vickie profile image Classic color!
Reviewer: Vickie

I purchased this color linen when it was on sale and I LOVE it! I feel that it's a classic color that would never go out of style. I used it to made curtains and pillowcases for the bedroom of my son's first apartment and they turned out great! Thanks for all your beautiful linens and for offering them at a price that is affordable. I'm hooked on your linens and don't want to sew with anything else!

Julie profile image wonderful all purpose fabric
Reviewer: Julie

This linen is one of the most versatile fabrics available! It washes beautifully and can be used for everything from clothing to home textiles and bed linens. I love the deep blue color and will use the insignia blue for summer weight clothing, table napkins and kitchen dish towels, and bento bags. Some of these will be gifts for family members. Thank you for making all this possible

In today's tutorial we are going to show you how to make and sew fabric belt loops, sometimes called belt carriers. It's one of those construction details that you never think about making until you sew a pair of pants or a dress with a detachable belt and realize that it could really do with something to keep the belt in place. Belt loops are not only functional, they can also be decorative. They can be different widths, topstitched or not, all depending on your sewing projects. Belt loops are usually made of the same fabric as the garment they are placed on, but could also add a touch of color and some interesting detailing if sewn in a contrasting fabric.

I made these napkins with an edging made of quilting cotton as a gift. This linen worked wonderfully for the project and the color is just stunning. I love this blue!

Tunic from my pattern using insignia blue middle weight linen. This is a 1x size made yesterday for a customer. She loved it and wants more of the same thing in different colors! Sewing with linen is such a joy.

Absolutely in love with this color blue. To get an idea - this photo was taken around 4pm in the snowy mountains of Frazier Park, CA. It is a bit brighter in the sun - but is the perfect mix of royal and navy blue. I buy all my linen from fabrics-store for making all of my SCA Viking garb. The linen is the most amazing quality for the price I have been able to find and is always very true to color swatch. I love that you can order swatches as well. It is very soft yet sturdy and durable and does not fade after many washes. Also, if you have an account you can rack up credit points and if you wait for a sale it's definitely a bonus!
