Not the slightly greyish color you would expect, but rather a nice warm tan/khaki that really stands out and adds just the right amount of color to your projects.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 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.

Beautiful soft hand
Reviewer: Laura

Washed and dried twice and the hand is lovely. The color is between beige and gray. I have made many pairs of summer capri pants with this weight linen and love them.

I Like this fabric

I have ordered this in the past to make napkins. The fabric is soft post washing and of good quality. However, my last order is of a different shade and does not match the previous orders. I am not able to comp- lete this set of napkins because of the mismatch. Very disappointed.

Color not as pictured
Reviewer: Anonymous

The fabric itself is lovely; soft with a nice drape and feel after only one washing. The color however is very different from the picture. It's definitely a khaki/tan color with very little (if any) gray to it. The name is misleading.

Buyer Reviews are important
Reviewer: Bev

First time buyer. Lovely fabric. Very impressed with the speed of delivery - 9 days to deliver to fairly remote regional Australia! The colour is not at all as expected. A reviewer had said the colour is close to light khaki. I'd have to agree. No grey tint as expected from a colour described as aluminium. It looks browner than the gorgeous natural I also bought. This won't put me off buying more fabric though. Fabulous materials and service. Thank you.

Beautiful tan/khaki/medium ecru
Reviewer: Leslie

This fabric is absolutely gorgeous. It has a very soft hand after only two washings and sews up beautifully. I do not know what the problem is with people saying that it is a miscolor. I do not have a fancy monitor and computer. I have a simple smartphone. On my smartphone the color is a khaki/tan or as one person described it, a medium ecru. The actual fabric looks almost exactly the way it appears on my telephone's screen. If the color is very important to you, order swatches. They are free. You can get them in just a couple of days and you can get as many as you want. I always order swatches. This is an absolutely beautiful fabric, and it seems to change color depending on whether it's under natural light or artificial light. It takes on a slightly more grayish tone under artificial light. So beautiful!

Wonderful Medium Ecru in Color
Reviewer: Astrid

In the vintage linens world, this color is called a medium ecru. I've been looking for this color forever and I'm so glad I finally found it. This shop never disappoints!

Agree with Marlene - more khaki than grey
Reviewer: Susan

The color is quite a bit different than the online \"swatch\" - but that's what real swatches are for. Other than that, I feel blessed to have a source of great linen - the selection & prices can't be beat at this site.

beautiful
Reviewer: Marlene

Your fabric is beautiful! I bought this to make sheets because another customer commented the color was more khaki. In natural light this is khaki, under bedroom lights, it appears to be dark gray. Lovely fabric no matter what color it is.

color
Reviewer: Sandra L

I purchased this for pillowcases and it's beautiful. My monitor is accurate and the swatch on the site is definitely not gray! There are discrepancies among monitors and computers. Always order swatches!

Check color carefully - order swatches
Reviewer: Anonymous

This color appears to be grey on screen but is in reality more of a tan or khaki. We are having to return it and re-order, which I hate because we are on a tight schedule to get these costumes done before our event. Asphalt is true grey, though it is a bit darker than this color, and with a slight blue tone. We are going to try IL041 in Fog, as well.

Mis-colour
Reviewer: TerryLee

The 5.3 oz linen is a great material. The Aluminium on the screen appears a light grey but when I received the material the colour was a light brown. I will still use the material but not for the purpose for which it was originally purchases.

Dresden plates on linen quilt. The linen provides a perfect background for the appliquéd pieces. When washed it crinkles up like the old antique quilts. Love it!

My chemise, apron and modesty piece are all made from your linen. This was taken on a windy day at my school where I dressed out as part of our Rev. War History Day. I am a Revolutionary War Re-enactor. I love your fabric.

This linen is the perfect background color for my Dandelion design hand printed in olive, yellow and white. The yellow really shows up a lot better in real life than in the photo. giardino.etsy.com
