CORAL linen 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".

Nice fabric but ...
Reviewer: Carlin

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.

Reviewer: Andie

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!

Such an eye popper. I used it as such in a long size bed cover along with a turquoise and yellow on a grey cover. Stunning.

Reviewer: Glenis

This order took 5 days from placement to delivery in New Zealand, truely amazing, thank you so much. I am very happy with it, a real nice true bright orange, perfect for a dress for myself.

Dress for my Granddaughter. It has lavender embroidery around neckline, sleeves and hemline.

6 pillow cases to go with the bed cover I made last week. A monumental project for me as it was huge. The linen feels weightless but it's warm and soft. I love this stuff!

Great cover. It is one full panel then yardage cut in half, 3 strips, kind of a double wide in fabric all done piecemeal randomly. So much fun watching it come together. Surprisingly we find it really warm now that it's so cold, 15 degrees this morning; cozy.

Cropped the "Phoebe" pattern. Love this bright red
