I love the color and weight of this. I used it for a bath towel, just sewing a straight line a little over an inch from the sides, allowing it to fray, and using the selvage for the ends. I love the roughness and absorbency, and the quick drying! It is a true deep purple.

About the color: I would not consider this to be royal purple at all... it's more of a plum. I placed this "plum" linen (on the right) with some strips of what I'd consider to be a royal purple knit, and corresponding threads... judge for yourself. If you want a true purple, definitely order a swatch of this one!! That said, I love the color - don't feel like a giant grape wearing it since it's a bit subdued. It would pair nicely with Dove, Optic White, Autumn Gold, or light color in those ranges.

Made a boyfriend jacket out of an old 1980's pattern with this IL90 Royal Purple 8.1oz linen. The fabric is substantial, but supple and soft; did not use interfacing, because I wanted it to look "less constructed" and have a lived in look. It turned out exactly as I hoped; absolutely love it!! I plan to pair it with jeans or leggings and wear it to my son's baseball games (team colors are purple/gold).
