Russian Romantic painter Ivan Aivazovsky was entranced by the wild, untameable energy of the sea, painting it in bruised blue and purple tones punctuated by white moonlight. ABYSS linen recalls the deepest tones in Aivazovsky's brooding seascapes, a rich indigo that suggests tempestuous, brewing drama.

At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

Susan profile image This color is phenomenal.
Reviewer: Susan

I can't wait to sew up a Chelsea Tee shirt out of this beautiful color. I got it in a two-yard doggie bag to see if I liked both the weight and the color, and both are excellent. Here's hoping F/S will add different weights in this gorgeous tone. I prefer to sew my linen with 100% cotton thread whenever possible, and for those who need to see the color prior to purchase, or are looking to match a thread, Gutterman color 6190 is an EXACT match. I just finished the cut edges to run the fabric through the wash, and had to find a window to see the stitches - and even then it was hard to discern them!

This is one of the many beautifully coloured linens that I have gotten from Fabrics- Store. The Firecracker Red was amazing and I have a great love of deep rich colours and this one is over the top. Just LOVE!!!!

Reviewer: Susan

This is SO lovely. The dark color makes it opaque enough for a blouse, but I need a heavier weight for the skirt I want to make. Just gorgeous. I could make a wardrobe if things from this fabric! More weights, please!

Glenna profile image seems different
Reviewer: Glenna

The dark color helps it to be opaque enough for a top but a dress would need a underslip. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it hasn't softened up like other FS linen. Typically I pull my linen garments out of the dryer and only touch up hems and seams with the iron. I like the soft wrinkles typical of linen, This fabric piece doesn't behave that way out of the dryer. It is stiff and with hard wrinkles. This piece requires a good ironing and then hard wrinkles form very easily. The FS bleached color handkerchief linen has soft wrinkles which looks shabby chic..... I wish this color behaved the same. However... the color & weight is wonderful.

Reviewer: Peggy

Abyss is the perfect name for the most beautiful color I've purchased from the linen store. Such a pleasing color that dances the line between navy and the deepest of purples. I adore this color... request it in heavier weights, pretty please!

Abyss tank cut on the bias. Am about to make a matching "sweater" to go with it for wearing to work on hot summer days. I cannot express how much I am in love with this color!!
