A vibrant dark teal shade that makes you wonder if it's blue or green. SPHINX linen's exotic jewel tone unfurls across Inka Essenhigh's evocative paintings, investing sublime oceanic depths or mysterious forests with a haunting, glowing aura. Fantastically surreal, her exquisitely detailed, atmospheric scenes collapse together natural and synthetic worlds, conveying lush, fervent landscapes populated by sprites and fairies, scenes painted with supernatural colours and the emanating light of the cinema screen.

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.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special "Hot Wash" process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight. As a Bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage(<3%), giving you more fabric to get your projects done. This finish, which requires manual human efforts, makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered.

Fabrics-store buyer profile image Slightly faded compared to Softened finish of the same color
Reviewer: Anonymous

I purchased the signature finish by accident when reordering Sphinx for a project. After washing, it is softer than the "softened" fabric, and has a beautiful drape, but it also looks very slightly faded when laid side by side with the other finish. It could be that the softer texture is absorbing more light. I am a little worried that the extra finishing will mean that the fabric will not wear as well, but only time will tell that.

Farleigh profile image Gorgeous color, no issues with the dye lots
Reviewer: Farleigh

This is a gorgeous teal blue-green color, it has the same beautiful drape as other IL019's, and I have ordered it twice with no issues with the color fading. I would definitely order this again.

Reviewer: Amata

I was so excited to get this linen. Its my first go at linen fabrics. I washed delicate cold with a tad of mild detergent and cold tumbled dry as I had read was fine to do. The color ran bad. I have huge blotches all over of lacking-green (the blue tone seemed to stay). The other two IL19 linen fabrics i washed in same batch had no issue so I assume it is just this dye job. Dissapointed as Inlove how soft and flowy it is!

This is what I mean by it got all blotchy when washed. The other IL19 fabrics washed up fine so its this dye in particular. Its why I made pillows. Cut to hide the worst of the blotches on the hidden side.

Pillowcase I made. Tried some decorative stitching for flair.
