IL019 All-purpose Ultramarine Softened - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)
The rich, vivid hue of ULTRAMARINE Linen
came to define French painter Raoul Dufy's art, filling coastal scenes
across the Riviera with the entrancing, deepening shadows of night.
Known today as one of art history's greatest colorists Dufy embraced a joyous, technicolor approach to art, coloring paintings, prints, ceramics and textiles with tones as fresh and sparkling as champagne.
But blue was the one he revered the most, partly because it defined the marine light of France that he so loved. But he also observed blue's inherent purity, noting, "Blue is the only colour which maintains its own character in all its tones…it will always stay blue…whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another colour—pink."
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
This linen is very soft and a pretty blue. It is much lighter than the picture, but I had read the other reviews and was prepared for that. It really is like a darker cornflower blue. It's bright enough to not be a pastel. I'll be making a LARP medieval tunic for my husband with it. I'll post pictures when it's done!
Other reviewers are right, color fades to a very plain cornflower blue, not anywhere near as vibrant as is shown on the screen. Not even rich enough to be called Royal blue. Quality is lovely as always, just don't be fooled by the color shown above.
As stated by others; once this is washed it loses the vibrancy. Compares more to the other deep blues like Royal. It's still great to work with and wear, but certainly disappointing.
This is so different after it's washed. It is just plain blue. You couldn't describe it as ultramarine at all. It is very nice linen just not ultramarine.
This fabric arrives nearly as bright blue as I see it on the monitor, but when it washes fades down to a nice medium blue and is SO soft. It was originally purchased to use on a hat, but will be used as the lining for the bodice of my doublet-style Elizabethan, and I bought extra to make into other items, with blue being a favorite color of both myself and my husband
This is a 16th century irish gown I made almost entirely out of Fabric-store.com linens. The underskirt is Ultramarine, the lining of the overgown is Tawny Port, and the bag-sleeved undershirt (aka leine) is Autumn Gold. The ultramarine was nothing like the color on my screen, but I expected that after looking at the posted works. It's a beautiful dark dark almost periwinkle. The Autumn gold was WAY darker than expected, and has been bleached several times in this pic to a perfect saffron. I have never been disappointed by the quality of fabric. Very nice to work with!
