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.

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).

Customer Questions and Answers


Hello - this color looks amazing, but I'm confused because most of the photos posted look much more blue than the green in the sample? I love the bluer looking tone.Thoughts? Thank you!!

We used to have debates on if this was blue or green. Based on the swatch in house it shows more of a blue tone than green. We have samples for purchase just to be sure the color is what you are wanting.

The Color!!!

Wow, this fabric is just what I wanted. Dense and heavy enough for aprons or dresses but not so heavy that it feels stiff. The color is beautiful and rich even after it's first washing. Love your fabrics!

One of faves!

This is absolutely one of my favorite F-S colors. Perfect in my pallete, neither to dark or too light, I wear it year around. Shorts, slacks, dress, skirt...everytime I sew something, I immediately replace it in my stash. As a south GA resident, I can wear IL019 virtually year round, except Jan and Feb. when the chilly wind kicks up a notch. I can give this fabric the highest possible, review, provided they keep making it! I love it! Charlotte

Love the color

It washed up beautifully with a bit of lint, just to be sure I washed it again. Color still vibrant and the texture is gorgeous! I never buy linen from anyone else!

Very impressed with this fabric!

Prompt delivery on my order. Great price. Beautiful color. Color and weight perfect for fall. Really softened up when I pre-washed it. Wonderful to sew with. I look forward to ordering more in the future.

Please bring this color back

The most beautiful, rich teal. I made a throw blanket and am planning a blouse with the leftovers. Please bring this color back. :)

I chose FS SPHINX Midweight Linen for the Capucine Robe. I love the result and look forward to many years of snuggling in this wonderful linen robe.

HANA Wrap Top made with FS SPHINX Midweight Linen. I decided to sew the HANA wrap top version out of FS SPHINX Midweight Linen and I'm so glad I chose this color! I don't wear blue often but this one made me want to add blue in my wardrobe.

Simplicity pattern went together beautifully. The linen has a scrumptious hand; after washing it drapes like a dream!

So comfortable for summer. The weight is just right and it has washed and held up so well already
