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 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).

Luxury fabric in a restful color

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.

Medium-to dark grey

This versatile dark shade of grey works with many colors. Most of my palette leans on the warm side of browns, russets and gold. This shade of grey works well with a variety of colors. I just wish it came in the heavier 4C22.

perfect!

You say your fabric is addictive; I say that, if so, it is a positive addiction. The quality is exactly what I hoped to find, and that doesn't happen very often. I really do love this linen.

The perfect Grey

I love the many colors of grey, it is my favorite color with so many moods, and most shades will work with just about any color.. The Nine Iron has now become my favorite deep grey, with a hint of crimson rather than blue. I have paired it with both warm and cool colors, and it works beautifully. IL019 is the perfect all purpose linen, and an amazing hand. FS always provides quality linen products and price, excellent customer service and fast shipping.

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.

I love this linen....the weight the color, the softness. I use it for my punch needle pillows and aprons.

This is a medium-dark grey that works with cool and warm colors. The pants are the Alexandra Moroccan pants. The top is from Paper Theory.
