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 58 inch wide 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).

Froth is my absolute favorite linen! The color is just the most gorgeous peachy cream.

Elegant dreamy color

This color is so beautiful! The fabric is so soft and so smooth. I love it so much. It's a bit transparent though, (than the il019) so you may need something to wear under it. Also it bleeds quite a bit so make sure pre wash it.

This is the most gorgeous buttery soft yellow! It was exactly what I had pictured for my project and I'm so happy with the finished garment (Tina Givens April Cardigan). I have just enough let over to make a pretty pintucked camisole. I am really happy I found this company. The prices, selection, fast shipping and customer service can't be beat. Pondering my next color......

Ilos of Mexico favoeite

This is a beautiful color between top cream and apricot. We bougjt some to produce light blouses for Ilos of Mx. The blouse had tiny tucks over the bodice and drop sleeves. The fabric was light as a cloud. We would send fotos but the style sold out quickly. We have ordered more. Thanks

love the color, love the feel

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 used my FS LIGHT BLUE, FROTH, MUSHROOM Lightweight linen to make three dresses, one for each of my girls. I used the Bluebell Sundress pattern from Flora Child Co. which is one of my favorite sources for patterns. They love to match, so I wanted to make the same dress for each of them, but in a different color to make them feel special. This dress is also perfect for twirling! Always always a hit with these girls.
