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 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.

My love for surplice tops continues as I added the JULIA Wrap Top in FS POTTING SOIL brown linen to my wardrobe this weekend! I stepped a little outside of my comfort zone by choosing a brown linen. As someone who typically gravitates toward cool colors, I'm loving this warm, rich brown to contrast the blues and greens in my wardrobe. As the name suggests, the color linen reminds me so much of spring on the farm as we dig in the dirt and begin our garden.
