The dusty, muted warmth of MONTANA GRAPE Linen was the ideal backdrop for Paul Gauguin's rustic scenes, conveying sun-soaked tracks of earth, dry flowers, or the shadowy layered depths of human skin.

A leader in the French Post-Impressionist oeuvre, Gauguin heightened colors so he could transcend reality, combining this dreamy shade of purple with feverish jungle greens that together transport us into a magical, otherworldly place.

He observed with fascination, "Colour! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams."

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).

Color of actual fabric received does not come close to the color as shown in the advertisement. Very disappointed.

I am sorry you were not happy with the color shown. Sometimes, since monitors can vary, the colors may not be as expected which is why we have a 30 day return policy so you can return the linen for a full fabric refund or a new color. I will email you directly our return policy.

Luscious color; linen shows off structure of tunic

When this color came out, I knew I had to make something with it but didn't know yet what. I decided on Vogue 9363 Tunic, and it was a great choice. I am getting so many compliments on this make. The linen just takes it up several notches so that people think I paid a lot at a boutique for this garment.

So Beautiful

I made a pair of slacks with this and made a Fabric Store jacket in Shadow Gray. The colors compliment each other really well. So love your linen!

I am looking forward to making a parti-colored, early period SCA under- tunic with some Strong Blue and some trim of Monument Gray. I can't wait to sew it up! It already washed up beautifully.

A lovely dusty plum

It's hard to accurately portray the color in a pic. It is truly the color of a "red" grape in the market, when it still has that dusty coating. Like a faded plum. Though technically purple, this would be a great addition to a natural-toned wardrobe

I am so in love with this mysterious color. I'm calling it raisin mud patina because naming colors is fun. I already had a tunic in this middle weight linen, but when I discovered the Demeter Dress pattern from Anna Allen, I knew I needed one in this earthy, greyed-down, barely purple purple. My artist mom talked me into leaving the hemline long, so this dress will be versatile. I can dress it up with nicer sandals, a statement necklace or shawl or just bum around the beach or farmer's market in it.

We are all spending more time at home these days so finding a comfortable outfit to lounge in style is more essential than ever. We tested the new Merchant & Mills Sunday Dressing Gown pattern for you and we can say that it might be just the perfect fit! You can read more about this project here:
