Sonia Delaunay was an unmistakable talent, a star of the 20th century who moved seamlessly between disciplines. The color combinations she explored were often unusual and unexpected, creating jarring, clanging clashes of visual noise that were as momentous as the industrial changes going on around her. 

IRIS Linen’s pale lilac shade often featured in her art, forming cold passages of light in amongst riotous patchworks of intensity, suggesting the electric light that pulsed through her life.

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.

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).

Lovely quiet shade of orchid/lavender.

I would say this hue is in between the pink of orchid with the blue of lavender. It is a shade, which is to say it has been darkened or muted. On the gray scale, where 1 is white and 10 is black, this appears to be in the 2-4 range. It flatters those of us with cool skin tones. As always, the quality is wonderful and it is fantastic to sew.

The color changes with the light, being brighter indoors. It is a very soft color. This is a self drafted portrait neck blouse, with hand embroidery.

My other photo shows the color a little dull but it looks exactly as shown on the site.

Looks exactly like the picture and sample I received...a pastel Lilac... I can't wait to make a pretty dress from this eventually. Washed it and it softened up even more... so beautiful.
