The warm yellow hue of Zenith linen recalls the radiant, sun-baked wheat fields of Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh, where golden sunlight shimmers across the canvas and burns a hole in the sky.

Yellow was a color of great personal significance to van Gogh, particularly towards the end of his life, when he flooded his canvases with the rich Mediterranean light of the French Arles countryside he came to call home. Artist Paul Gauguin later reflected on the work of his close friend, writing, "Oh yes, he loved yellow, this good Vincent, this painter from Holland – those glimmers of sunlight rekindled his soul, that abhorred the fog, that needed the warmth."

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).

India profile image amazing color

I ordered the heavyweight of this color last year and then the middle this year- the color is electric with a slight green undertone. Looks great with greens and blues.

Claire profile image Not a fan of this color

I'm a sucker for the wonderful narratives that Fabric-store uses to market their colors of linen. The one that sold me on Zenith was the connection to Van Gogh's sunflowers, but perhaps color is relative because this yellow didn't feel like the more golden color of VG's paintings. It's more pale and blue. To be fair, VG did a lot of sunflowers but Zenith doesn't match my image of his yellow. I'd have returned this but return shipping is too much relative to the cost of the fabric, which is as always, a good price.

Need some lemon is your tee?

This was a db purchase I recently received. It might be called yikes yellow by some, because it is close to the color of a fresh lemon... but two yards of it will be made into a linen tank, and the remaining yard will be perfect for patches in visual mending at my cottoneyedjo etsy shop! I hope this color returns because I love it!

This is a beautiful yellow. I am thrilled will my remnant piece and will be getting more. Super versatile thanks to it's intensity; which makes this yellow all the more intriguing! I have some organic cotton that has a print with hints of yellow and this particular hue brings it all together so beautifully. I'll be sure to post pictures. The linen is very soft and crisp -- all the quality that we've come to love and expect! it is especially beautiful with the blue dress linen as well as the asphalt gray and I'm certain many others.

Beautiful fabric that was a dream to work with. The embroidery did well on it, and it drapes beautifully as a dress.
