Silver Linen's quiet, blue-grey mirrors the softly diffused light of Claude Monet's snow scenes, where land and sky are muffled by enormous puffs of cloud and snow. Subtle blue shadows fall across heaps of white snow and bristle through freezing tree branches or suggest rising storm clouds in the distant horizon, but they are a quiet form of anticipation in otherwise silent, still places almost brought to a halt by winter.
World-renowned as the painter of light, Monet painted outdoors en plein air in all kinds of weather in a tireless pursuit to capture the essence of a a moment in time, but his freezing snow scenes speak of a particularly unflinching dedication and the hours spent crouching in the snow in the the pursuit of truth.

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).

A Great Color

I picked up a piece of the Silver linen from the Doggie Bag to make some dinner napkins and cocktail napkins to up my tabletop game. The color is ideal for both uses. Now I just have to find the time to make enough of those dinner napkins for a dinner party.

Cynthia profile image Really looks Silver

Typically I use satin ribbon to get a metallic look on my Tallit order. A client wanted all linen and not the ribbon so I went looking at my favorite linen store! You had a middle weight called "silver" so I decided to give it a try. When I opened the package, the fabric was almost shiny!! After washing, the shininess dulled just a bit but it will still pass as silver! I love it and so will my client!

Another Lovely Shade to Blend

My favorite way to audition new colors is buy buying some as a doggy bag. Did you realize that 0.30 is almost 12" x width, in this case about 56 ".. Plenty for accent details, a gift bag or more. Lots of bias can be cut, and ready if it is color you like... although in all honesty I like them ALL! I LOVE THIS LINEN! Small accessories are quick to sew up and especially profitable at these prices!

I had some of the floral print linen left from that last make, the Hinterland hack, so I decided to try again pairing Silver with it. This time I used it just as bias seam binding turned to the outside and a wider strip of it along the bottom of the skirt of this Demeter Dress by Anna Allen patterns. This is such a subtle, lovely color, and it's a perfect complement for the floral print. I used Gütermann thread color 102, which gets lost in it, the match is so good.

I chose the contrast linen first, then from Fabrics-Store.com I ordered swatches of a few different greys and blues before settling on Silver to complete this dress, which is a hack based on the Hinterland Dress by Sew Liberated. I gave it my own shawl collar and turn-back sleeves. I do love linen!
