A brilliant yellow with just a hint of an orange undertone making the name a perfect fit for this color. Just a gorgeous version of linen sunshine. MARIGOLD linen's rich, ochre yellow is flush with warm radiance, like a late summer sunset. American artist Keith Haring saw sunny optimism and the golden glow of human spirit in this colour, bleeding it into his freewheeling universe of jumping people, barking dogs and graphic slogans.

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.

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).

It is the kind of fabric that makes it easy to fall in love with sewing

Fabric-store linen is the first fabric I've ever sewn with. The quality is always consistent and comfortable and now fabric-store is always my first choice for anything linen.

Lovely, lively shade!

True marigold is a hard to find color and here it is in a nice quality linen at a good price. Received my first order and immediately ordered more. It's not just another yellow, it definitely has the invigorating orange tint of marigolds. I hope this stays in the line-up, it's a real winner!

Vibrant color!

Just received order. Fabric is excellent quality and the color is so vibrant! Fabric is soft and supple and hangs very well. Am extremely satisfied.

When I saw the IL019 Marigold I knew it would be the perfect statement color. I then chose to combine it with natural linen that wouldn't compete for attention. The top is based on a Kiana Bonollo Bell Sleeve Dress Pattern and the pants are Closet Core Pietras. I really wanted to "design" the set in my own way and decided a rectangle cutout for the top would be a nice touch. The color-blocked pockets on the pants are meant to tie the set together without taking away from the top. You can read more about this project here:

I made this tablecloth as a gift for my sister--in-law. It doesn't have any overhang. I call it a "table mat".
