One of the most famous artists of all time, Leonardo da Vinci's art is filled with subtle, mysterious shades of brown like that of POTTING SOIL Linen, proving how entrancing this unassuming color can be.

From undulating landscapes to the tinge of angel's wingtips, golden browns bring depth and weight into his quiet, mystical scenes, investing in them a softly muffled warmth that conveys the vastly complex, weighty depths of human feeling.

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.

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).

France profile image Beautiful and rich colour

As all quality linen from Fabrics Store, this colour is just the right thing. Rich and deep, beautifully balanced, not too reddish nor yellowish or greyish. I love the brown tones, so earthy and natural.

It is always a pleasure to sew with the FS Softened or Signature finish linens!

It washes and dries really well. It doesn't come out of my dryer wrinkled. Linen is one of my favorite materials. It is very durable and ages well, I never have trouble getting stains out. It also has a lovely rustic texture and drape.

One hot wash and dry each, wanted to share a color comparison between TOP: IL019 All-purpose Brown Stone Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2) and BOTTOM: DB IL019 All-purpose Potting Soil Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2) Personal opinion: they're a lot more similar in shade than I thought, especially in indoor light. Brown stone is more "chocolatey" and formal; potting soil is more of an earthy Hobbit color.
