Dusty, dreamy shades of lilac like Wistful Mauve appeared time and again in the art of pioneering abstractionist Hilma af Klint, representing otherworldly, spiritual states of mind. 

A medium, theosophist and artist of the early 20th century, Af Klint is now widely recognized as one of the very first abstract artists. Throughout her long career, she produced an impressive volume of ground-breaking abstract artworks, that conveyed metaphysical realms with flowing organic shapes and luminescent passages of color.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.

As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Maureen. I just want say that if I can't match the thread color exactly, I use a duller color or as with the Shadow Gray, I used a brighter, cool shift of bluer toned pink, leaning toward purple on the color wheel. Just by one shift cooler. I still have difficulty seeing the thread well enough to rip. So a slight color change is totally workable.

I adore this fabric color so much! But, unfortunately, I have been struggling to find some thread to match it. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'd really appreciate them, please!
