IL019 All-purpose Monument Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
The cold, silvery hue of MONUMENT Linen flooded across French Impressionist Gustave Caillebotte's Parisian scenes, capturing the shimmering, majestic grandeur of the newly built city.
Fascinated by photography, Caillebotte invested the same dazzling
qualities of light into his canvases, letting surfaces glisten and
reflect with a mirror-like sheen. Refined, sophisticated grey and silver
tones were his preferred palette, reflecting the glossy stone, polished
surfaces and heavy metals of the refurbished Parisian cityscape that
was rising all around him.
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).

Customer Questions and Answers
What is the best fabric for casual, simple dinner napkins? I don't want to iron them.
You would want to take a look at our IL019 middleweight linen. You will have some wrinkles, but to mitigate them, dry on low heat and remove damp, smooth out and air dry.
As usual, the fabric is a dream for making costumes and garments.
I decided to make an Assembly Line caftan out of this linen. It feels a little heavier than the other medium weight linens I have purchased but I really love it. I do feel kind of like Gandalf the grey in this and am considering making a wizard hat to go with it. I can not figure out how to add a photo to any of my reviews.
Add my name to all the fans. Wonderful to work with and feels so good on. Plus the speed with which you filled my order was amazing so I am a fan of F/S as well. Cannot wait to think up a new project
I have to say that I am obsessed with linen right now. It's a good thing that fabric-store.com exists! Monument is a gorgeous color. It does have a blue undertone. What I would call Confederate blue. I made a set of sheets for someone else out of it, and almost kept them for myself! I guess I'm just going to have to wait for the next sale, and make that happen.
I just wanted to tell Rosemarie how cute those pillows are that she did the machine applique and embroidery on.....adorable!! I want to do something like this when I can find the time...thank you for sharing!
I made the Akira pants and added back pockets. It was so easy to work with! I've now made 4 pairs of these pants with different variations. Since I don't have any hips I like having the drawstring to help keep my pants up! I love the weight of this fabric. Very comfortable and soft!
Love this fabric but it is definitely a blue-grey and the colour in the photo shows the exact colour once washed. This fabric is fabulous to work with and as it was my first project, I should have heeded the warnings that it would become addictive. My intent is to have my entire wardrobe in linen - I can't get enough. I've got some other projects on the go and will post when done. I "thank you" for feeding my addiction - it's keeping me out of trouble!, although my husband probably wouldn't thank you as much because I just keep buying more! Planning some home decor projects with the jacquards over the fall and winter!
