NINE IRON linen's steely, dramatic grey with just a hint of crimson became great swathes of deep shadow in the hands of the painter Thomas Cole, sweeping across America's epic mountain ranges and forming wild, turbulent skies laden with thunderstorms.

His momentous landscapes are a celebration of America's sublime wilderness during the mid-19th century, before industrialization took over, invoking the unstoppable force of this overwhelmingly vast terrain.

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.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.

As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers


Will this shade be coming back? Or the Nine Iron in IC64? Is there any way to know which shades might be coming back and which ones are sold out for good without having to ask about each one?

Such a high class fabric!

I made a dress out of this in just a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. It simply wants to be sewn into beautiful things. The signature finish makes the fabric feel like it has been your favorite for years, and (even after being shoved in a backpack for airline travel) wrinkles relax out into softness after a few minutes of wear. This color is really marvelous. It is a soft, deep grey, like calligraphy ink with a bit of water on a zen painting.

Sleep softly with new sheets

I made new sheets for our bed that compliments our blanket and quilt. After several pre-washes I hemmed both raw edges and kept the selvages intact at the sides. It's getting softer with use and I expect it will get even softer as it gets used and washed. I have this linen in a different color that I made into a nightgown and I love it.

This weight pleats and swishes for the skirt and with two layers the bodice has perfect structure. I love sewing this and it irons beautiful but can also come out of the dryer a little damp and hang to look fairly nice without.

Here is a close up to show the texture and color of Nine Iron linen. This was taken outside in an overcast day. It is just the right fabric for a garment to wear for years. The color is restful, and luxurious.

Today we are delighted to share with you a pattern that we simply adore – the Burnside Bibs by Sew House Seven, a pair of workwear-inspired overalls with a stylish and feminine twist. An absolute must-have gem and a great addition to your casual wardrobe!
