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 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).

Customer Questions and Answers


I need to make a men's casual linen suit for a summer wedding -- pants and a jacket (and maybe a vest). Would medium weight linen be heavy enough for this project?

For suits, we recommend our heavyweight 4C22 linen which is a 7.1oz per square yard fabric and the lightest we would go for tailored suits and jackets, even for casual styles.

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.

Patricia profile image Very Rough Texture

I have purchased dozens of yards of 019 Linen in all finishes. The color of this one is beautiful, but it is a very rough texture. I have washed it a half dozen times. I am not sure what to do with it because the texture is so rough. I have noticed the same trend with 4C22.

Beautiful color

Absolutely love how this skirt turned out for my daughter. She knots and ask me to make her two skirts to wear with her crop sweaters.

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

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!
