IL019 All-purpose Turquoise Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
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 59 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
Is this 100% flax linen or 100% cotton linen?
Hello, When we use the word linen on our site, we mean 100% flax linen fabric.
Dear F/S Team or Customer, Will this lovely turquoise IL19 be suitable for a wrap skirt cut on the bias? Thanks!
Yes absolutely! We have used this base for our Nico and Maia patterns which are both bias cut.
Dear F/S Team, I made a tablecloth with Meadow 4c22, napkins with turquoise IL019, and table runner with orange/blue narrow width fabric. Totally lovely table setting. I'm needing your help for placemats. I could do Turquoise again with fringing. What do you suggest? Pam Murphy
Would this be a suitable weight for slipcovers? If not, what weight would work best?
It can and has been used for slipcovers for items that are not considered &quot;High Use&quot; if it is then you may want to consider a heavier linen such as 4C22 or IL090. Ordering a swatch to see the linen will also help in making your choice.
How would this look in a robe with "meadow" linen for the pajamas. I am planning to make pajamas with my meadow linen. Thanks!
Beautiful and a nice contrast with the Meadow
Is turquoise linen a the lighter shade like Rafaella dress in the second picture? Or is it dark dark shade? It looks different in every customer picture. Thank you!
The color is closer to the last picture posted by Elsa.
I was so happy to be able to find a quality linen fabric in exactly the color I wanted. The price was great too. It shipped so fast, I had it in practically no time at all. I had been looking on Etsy (which I adore) but all the linens I found were so expensive. I used this to make curtains and it was so wonderful to work with. So glad I found this affordable quality option.
lovely blue in person. can't wait to make this addition to my closet
Never disappointed with my purchase. Beautiful colors and textures. Love the comfort of linen
So happy to have found this site! Linen is my favorite fabric! I found you looking for Roman shade fabric and am now rebuilding my wardrobe. This color is fantastic. I made a simple shift. It went together like a dream and I am wearing it everywhere. I believe it will wear like iron!
The best on both price and quality!!
Such a lovely summer color. Working with Fabric Store linen is such a joy. Made the Rafaella dress and get so many compliments. Having comfortable summer outfits that go from conference room to cafe are a must in this weather. So glad I can expand my wardrobe with this luscious color!
