Another color opinion
Reviewer: Jan

This is a lovely fabric. Just right for summer pants. Washed up beautifully and didn't unravel too much. The color was a bit of a surprise. I would call it a silver gray. Definitely a cool color that would be complemented with silver jewelry, not gold. I'd maybe even go so far as to say it looks like some denim jeans I have, so in that respect it could be called a neutral. But it's not a neutral gray by any stretch.

Perfect for curtains
Reviewer: Adrienne

This fabric is beautiful! The color does have a blue tint to the gray, which is perfect for my baby boy's new room. It is very slight. I plan to put his restoration hardware tent right by these curtains and grays are very close. It is easy to work with and soft. Great linen for a great price!

Not gray as expected
Reviewer: Donna

I agree with one of the other reviewers. This fabric is not gray, but a odd shade of blue. Will be returning it. However, the texture of the linen is wonderful and the weight just right for curtains.

Monumental, indeed
Reviewer: Viorica

Let me start by saying I am no sewer.:) but I kept reading how awesome linen sheets were, and my wallet can't afford to pay $150 for a sheet. That's when I decided to take my mom's sewing machine and make them myself. Somehow I found the fabrics-store website and by reading, I figured the 5.3weight would ho just fine for bed sheets. from all the colors, this was the most interesting! I waited almost a month for it to go on sale and bought 10yd. I was nervous and excited in the same time. Once I opened fhe package, I fell in love with it. I prewashed it(as I read in the comments) and it took me 3 nights to finish a sheet with 2 pillow cases(told you I'm a beginner). Despite my lack of experience, it was a breeze to work with this fabric. It's practically sewing itself. Today I am washing them today the 1st time, and I am so curious how they will come out. I have some fabric left and my hands are itching to make a simple tank top. Until then, I will attach a picture of the sheet and pillow cases on our bed.

Love it
Reviewer: Denise

Wonderful color...undertones of green and blue. I made two tunic tops with it and they are wonderfully light but little see through. Considering pillowcases.

Fabulous
Reviewer: Tina

I LOVE this fabric. I am currently working with it to make a dress and I keep stopping and staring at the fabric. The color is a beautiful rich grey and the feel of the fabric is soft but not wimpy. For anyone wondering about the weight of the fabric, it is a medium weight. It is neither heavy nor see-through. It's perfect for the dress I am making, but you could also make anything out of it- pants, jacket, tunic, etc. I will definitely be making more garments out of this fabric.

A new stash standard for me!
Reviewer: Athena

This is an outstanding 'gray': it has terrific depth of color & is a marvelously unexpected neutral that matches all sorts of other, unexpected colors. I really can't say enough about the value of this color dye: it works as an historical color, as a very modern color, as a trim & as a base color trimmed with other pieces. The sample photos posted are particularly impressive with the variation they illustrate for this colorway: a modern apron, modern/historic pants, a classic ladies dress - now that is versatility! I like this for soft trousers as a break from black or navy & also for very stylish, modern-looking kitchen linens (bread bags, aprons, towels & napkins). I hope Fabrics-Store makes 'Monument' FOREVER!

My first linen garment
Reviewer: Leann

I'm in love with this linen. I've been intimidated to sew linen because I have an old Japanese sewing machine that has no features, other than foreword and backwards. So I read some tutorials on Fabric-store and jumped in! I made a tunic from Simple Modern Knitting from this beautiful fabric, my new favorite : )

Beautiful color!
Reviewer: Deborah

Monument is the perfect title for this color linen. It's not a drab gray, but rather a color with depth and clarity. I have made tea towels from it and it is very absorbent, dries quickly and is ready for reuse. I am falling more and more in love with linen.

Lovely to look at
Reviewer: Barbara

I am making a pair of 1860's gentleman's trousers with this linen. The hand of this softened linen is lovely. It sews very well. Even having to pick out my mistakes is not too bad on this fabric. When needed, it irons to a crisp line. This is not the first item I have sewn using this weight linen. I go back to it again and again.

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!

Here's another shot of this color I use for linen pants in my shop. I don't see any colored undertones. It looks perfectly gray to me, and my clients seem to love it :) gypsyandfree.etsy.com

IL019   MONUMENT Softened - 100% Linen

Am I crazy thinking got the wrong fabric, or is this large a variation to be expected? The sample I ordered is what I expected this color to be - grey. The fabric is very blue. Not sure if I'll use it or return it. Has anyone else had the colour be so off before?

Could not agree more with the other reviews raving about this grey. It's deep, rich tone is very flattering, and it sews up beautifully. Love the Doggie Bag offerings and the chance to make a cute, cool summer top for under $15!

This linen is gorgeous. A soft hand and beautiful drape make it simply dreamy. I use IL019 for my aprons (and napkins and runners...) and love that they are luxurious, durable, and functional. Wonderful product! --Amy Stone ponyandpoppy.etsy.com
