IL020 Handkerchief Coral Softened - 100% Linen - Light (3.7 oz/yd2)
is a color filled with heat and fire, burning with the raging
intensity of a Spanish sunset. For the deeply passionate painter Joan
Miro this red held great significance, both as a patriotic symbol for
his native Spain and a potent carrier of raw, overflowing emotion that
spills out from his canvases and into the room beyond.
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".
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
I bought this Coral handkerchief linen for a specific project, but ended up using it as sleeve lining for a nice but not-very-interesting green medieval tunic. What a difference it made! Since then, I've used it as lining and accent color for a dark blue gown, and ordered more for future projects. I hope you will introduce more handkerchief linen in bright colors.
Made the Roseclair dress from Cashmerette in this beautiful fabric. IL020 is a bit lighter than IL019, but it worked out well for this dress as it has a lot of gathers.
This is a lovely fabric, it has a nice hand and is easy to sew. As another review said, it is good for lightweight lagenlook summer tops. But how do you come up with these names? I think of coral as a lighter orange. And you call it an orange-red but I don't see any red in this at all. This is closer to a Halloween orange. Fortunately, I like all shades of orange and I will get plenty of use out of this top. I suggest people take the time to get a swatch.
I made a sleeveless tunic/summer dress with this gorgeously ultra-vivid orange/red linen. It drapes beautifully and is light and airy. I'll be buying more to make some lagenlook full and flowy pants soon! Fun to pair with bright blues/turquoise!
First, let me say the fabric is exactly what I ordered! Fast arrival, even in the midst of current holiday and vaccine shipment competition (Christmas 2020). I was so excited to see a red/orange color on sale for use in my Italian Renaissance and Elizabethan period petticoats, that I jumped and ordered. It arrived - and it's much more orange than I expected, with less red. I knew better, so that's on me!
