FROTH linen is a pale blush tone reminiscent of a ripening apricot in the white spring sunlight, recalling the luminous flesh tones in French master Edouard Manet's paintings.

As a Realist painter, Manet made the human figure his central focus, whose pale blush tones become visions of light when set against deep, earthy browns and velvety blacks. On constructing his own distinctive, high contrast paintings Manet wrote, “… look for the main light and the main shadow; the rest will come naturally.”

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".

love the color, love the feel
Reviewer: Lelia

Froth just arrived so I have not had time to process it. I like to pull a thread to get the grain line, then I zig zag the cut edges, and then I wash the linen with a very mild detergent to remove the linty fiber before I sew it into a garment. I may also dye this fabric leaving much of the froth color. By dyeing the fabric before I sew it I create a one-of-a-kind fabric for my unique projects. I will plan to photograph each step and share my projects when complete.

I made a little dress for my great-granddaughter Lua. She hasn't received it yet, as I have to mail it to her. I loved working on it.

Gorgeous Color
Reviewer: Karen

This fabric is so petty, kind of a soft apricot color. I've chosen my pattern but need to muslin it before I use this gorgeous fabric.

Gorgeous pale color
Reviewer: Janelle

I've posted a pic at right, the tunic is in FROTH, worn over a pair of ivory colored pants. Wonderful, warm, pale, peachy-yellow shade.

The Froth fabric I just received is darker than Apricot! The person I am sewing for approved it, so I'll be using the fabric, but it certainly does not match your photograph or description.

Good afternoon! I just sent you an email - we must have shipped a wrong color by mistake. Froth is very light and is no way darker than the Apricot. Let me know if your project has time to get the correct color and we will re-ship :) Thank you!
