Dusk was James Abbot McNeill Whistler's favorite time of day, when cool temperatures and dwindling light turned colors into an ambiguous, enigmatic haze.

Nuanced shades of blue and green like that of TURQUOISE Linen allowed him to convey this bracing evening light as it stretched across misty skies and open expanses of freezing water, merging the two into one. A leader in the aesthetic movement of the 19th century, Whistler blended music, poetry, and art together in these tranquil, mesmerizing scenes, writing, “As music is the poetry of sound, so is painting the the poetry of sight.”

Our Turquoise is not your typical lighter, brighter blue like the gemstone, but rather a unique blue with a green undertone and a subtle touch of grey.

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.

I love this linen. It's a perfect weight for a blouse. The color is IL019 Turquoise, middle weight, 5.3 oz. Couldn't be happier.

Reviewer: Sheila

The Turquoise fabric is not what I would have bought had I seen it in person, as it just isn't a true turquoise to me. As an artist, I expected a different intensity. The fabric IL019 itself has a nice hand, but I know from experience with many of the other colors, it fades a bit after washing. I wish did not happen. Since I don't purchase enough of the fabric at a time to not have to pay shipping, I figured that I might as well keep it, Rather than pay to send it back.

Jehanne profile image beautiful fabric!
Reviewer: Jehanne

I just received a few yards of this and it is so beautiful that I just want to spend some time petting it. I think it is going to be made into my favorite linen pants pattern. Gosh! this is beautiful! Grayed tones to it. Will be good. What bit of joy to open up in this scary world!

Asya profile image Color not accurate
Reviewer: Asya

The linen is lovely quality but the color is much more blue than turquoise and lighter. Other colors I have ordered (besides Meadow handkerchief weight) have been very accurate

JoAnn profile image Not exactly turquoise
Reviewer: JoAnn

This color is almost dead-on the same color as Blue Heaven, so isn't the lovely deep-ish turquoise shown in the swatch online. In fact, the color is so close I almost could use the same thread. It's very pretty, but not turquoise. I'm giving it three stars only because of the color mismatch/misnomer; otherwise, the linen itself is divine.

Shari profile image stunning
Reviewer: Shari

I have had this colour in my stash, for quite a while. This week I purchased Stylearc EME pattern, and suddenly this was the perfect colour to use. I made up the dress, using this colour, paired with black,, and the dress is stunning. Sometimes, its just a matter of the right colour being there, when the right pattern comes along. All the more reason to fill your stash, with tons of Fabric-Store linens. The very best I have found.

Mina profile image My favorite color in the whole world
Reviewer: Mina

It's a medium greyed green-turquoise, very close to what my laptop shows with the screen upright.. I will be making a princess-seamed tunic with it. Maybe decorated with card-weaving. It goes perfectly with my favorite long multi-color skirt. Already thinking of other projects for this color. Sphinx is a dark teal, (Meadow goes with it). Bayou Blue is much greyer than this Turquoise.

Reviewer: Anonymous

This turquoise is the most beautiful color. It is not that gaudy turquoise color seen in the big box stores today. I'm sorry I can't tell you how it washed or sewed since I am still debating patterns to use. Looking forward to working with linen-my first project.

Linda profile image Please keep this color in stock!
Reviewer: Linda

This is not a bright pale turquoise (like the actual stone) but the color of a stormy northern ocean. I am in LOVE with this color. Tonally it matches my monitor but there is something that reveals itself in person. That sort of greenish hint that isn't green, it isn't teal, it's just my favorite color blue on earth. PLEASE keep this color in stock. Also, sewing with it is a DREAM.

Beautiful fabric. My first project using this linen and the Cara Pattern from your site. I wasn't sure of my size so I ended up making it too large. When finished I put a pleat in each shoulder to narrow it down and cut the neck line deeper, then added the buttons. Next one I'll make a few inches longer and probably no pockets or at least smaller. I'm 5'3" and shorter on my left side so it takes some tweaking. It gets better and better and is now my favorite!

Made these Free Range Slacks from Sew House 7, and really love the color and texture of this fabric. I biked in these pants the day after I finished them, which is the real testament to their durability!

I love the combination of turquoise on the top and mixed natural on the underside of my flanged duvet. The texture is simply scrumptious!
