American artist Cy Twombly made the kind of art that celebrates what it is to be an artist, with wild scribbles, streaks and swipes applied with a raw and primal energy. He spent much of his later life in Italy, where he interwove classical ideas into his abstract art.

He then began painting with an increasingly spontaneous language, and shockingly bright shades of pink and purple like DAHLIA. Flowers were a recurring theme in his later art, but they were far from pretty and sentimental, instead expressing the messy, tactile, and all-consuming qualities of the natural world. 

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).

Thank you for letting us know as that is what I was looking for also. And I agree, I'd love to see a fuschia or magenta! That would be amazing!!

Beautiful

Bought this to make a button down shirt for myself. Color is gorgeous and as always the fabric is soft and launders like a dream.

Definitely purple, not magenta

The quality of the fabric is excellent, as always with Fabrics-Store.com, but the color representation is off. The picture appears more of a magenta/fuschia on my screen, and when I received the piece, it is definitely purple.

I used the Fabric Stores Faye Duster pattern. The Dahlia is gorgeous and the weight and feel is perfect.
