OLIVE BRANCH Linen's earthy green rolls outwards across Hieronymus Bosch's fantastical scenes, forming endless pastures of muddy grass and fervent trees that evoke the utopian paradise of Eden. His paintings are brimming with moralizing stories about life, love, loss, and repentance, as impish humans, birds, fish, insects, and machines form mini-dramas that play out in a complex myriad of theatrical sequence.

But it is the paradisiacal, olive green landscape that unites them, a soft neutral with golden undertones, which, when bedecked with small patches of glistening jewel tones, sparkles with vitality and life.

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.

Beautiful linen
Reviewer: iowyth

I bought this to make a robe for a friend. They absolutely loved it! I found the colour to tend just a smidge cooler than the photograph, but the overall colour is gorgeous and luxurious. Very well worth the purchase.

So Soft
Reviewer: Peggy

This "olive branch" color is just right-not too dark, nor too light. It's very versatile and goes with many other colors. Very nice drape and so soft. I'm going to make a jumpsuit for my daughter.

Awesome Color!
Reviewer: Bari

If you can picture the color of a green olive , that is as close as I can describe it. Computers sometimes do not do colors justice. It is a rich color to be sure. It washes very nicely and easy to sew as well. I have bought this color many times and will continue to buy it.

Reviewer: Sheila

Gorgeous colorThis is ONE of my favorite colors I have received so far. It's absolutely stunning. I can't wait to start sewing on it and I have no doubt that I will probably order more before it's all over. Prior to washing it, II soaked it in water and white vinegar to preserve the color. I've never done this before but following the advice of another person on the site, I went ahead and tried it. It worked perfectly! I highly recommend this if you have noticed the color fading after washing before, like I have. I love it.

Perfect green
Reviewer: Glenna

I ordered this to make pants using the Pattern named Free Range Slacks by Sew House Seven. I was so happy to realize this color (Olive Branch) matches multiple tops currently in my wardrobe. If you own a top of any type of floral print fabric, chances are very good the green in the leaves of the floral print will match this linen.... which happens to be a perfect weight for wide leg trousers. This is the perfect shade of green for pants even if you are like me and don't normally wear this shade against your face.

IL019 Linen
Reviewer: C

I have purchased several colors of this fabric and they have all been very nice and worked well for everything I have created with them. When I want to try a new color, I order a yard, keep a small sample with the color name label attached so I can remember the color name. Then I have enough for a small project and to do some testing with it.

Sandra profile image Perfect olive color & weight for summer linen jacket
Reviewer: Sandra

Washed in machine, pressed, cut from pattern, sewn & shaped into a perfect cropped summer jacket. Bought on a whim 3 linen colors, all are wonderful quality & weight for garment-making. No regrets. Thanks fabric-store for being there during quarantine. Appreciate your efficient shipping too.

Perfect weight and color!
Reviewer: Olivia

I'm new to me-made clothing and purchased a few yards of this linen on recommendation from a friend. I sewed a pair of lounge pants and matching top, and I'm in love! The linen itself is the perfect weight for effortless drape, and the Olive Branch color is absolutely gorgeous. This is a set I can wear around the house or out shopping or to the beach. Couldn't be happier!

Gorgeous Linen!
Reviewer: Margaret

I love sewing with the various linens I have received from Fabrics-Store.com! I have one of their great fabrics waiting to be made into a tunic. If anyone has sewn with Olive Branch, I would welcome any suggestions for thread manufacturer/coloring. Trying to order thread online is not at all easy and I am ending up with a collection of greens that do not match this wonderful color. Thank you!

This the most exquisite olive green ever. I can't wait to make something wonderful to wear.

While creating the FS NICO dress in a Midweight OLIVE BRANCH Linen, I discovered something about myself. I really thrive in winter. I have certainly heard of buying clothes out-of-season, but sewing clothes out-of-season? That's a new concept for me. This might just become a tradition.
