A finer quality 5.3 ounce medium weight 100% linen that is woven with finer threads, and an increased thread count. The higher thread count makes 1C64 shrink less and gives this linen a very smooth and luxurious look and feel, earning it the moniker "luxury linen".

Rebecca profile image Very Nice
Reviewer: Rebecca

Tightly woven (opaque), fine even warp and weft with a few minor slubs, a good crisp shirt weight, but would add a thin lining for skirt/dress/pants. Color is cool brown leaning to grey, I would say closest to Munsell 10YR2/2 or 2.5Y2/2. For the paint-familiar, I'd use Raw Umber cut with a small bit of white to approximate. It is very very neutral in effect, not an ugly color, but disappearingly dull; perfect for a 1680's Quaker petticoat. This 1c64 grade fabric would also make a wonderfulI outer layer for a pair of stays.I haven't sewn or washed it yet, so I can't comment about its performance there...

Reviewer: Anonymous

Lovely linen as always but this colour is very dull and muddy-looking. Substantially more grey than the screen swatch suggests. Not sure how to use it because of the colour. Probably on-sell someone in sca who wants low-class colours that won't look aweful after traipsing through mud during a rainy camp. Buy a sample for this one.

The Carob is like the picture, a lovely tone between brown and gray. The "luxury" linen is indeed luxurious: smooth and stable. There was very little shrinkage and fiber loss from washing and drying. This is now my favorite linen for garments.
