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.
Reviewer: JESSICA The quality of fabric is good, not too slubby. The color is beautiful and rich, appears the same in person as it does on my computer monitor! Love this fabric!
Designs From Time
Reviewer: Christine Simply put, this linen fabric is divine! I use FabricsStore.com exclusively in my historical costuming business. WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: The biggest faux pas I see my clients committing is in laundering their linen. I highly recommend you ALWAYS hand wash linen, never use hot water, or bleach (on white linens) and never tumble dry. Soak in a mild laundry soap like Woolite for about 45 minutes in a temp no warmer than 70 degrees. Agitate it but don´t rub together, lay it on a large towel and roll it up to remove the excess water, unroll it, and dry the linen garment flat. Linen has a natural glue that is created when it is woven. This glue protects the fibers and gives it that lovely sheen you see when it is brand new. When you use an iron that is too hot, or wash it in hot water or wash in a washing machine, or wring out the water by twisting, it can and does remove this natural glue and breaks down the fibers so that they become fuzzy and the linen loses that sheen. Once this happens, you can never, ever, restore it. Iron your linen when it is slightly damp, or spritz it with a water bottle and let it soak in before you apply the iron. If washed properly, linen will last a long, long time.
Reviewer: Jessica Normally I would iron linen med/high.. but this shade is sensitive to heat. If you notice a dark spot, spritz the spot with water while it´s still warm & it will go back to normal. Then turn your iron down. :)
Love love love this color. Would make fantastic bold clothing, and would make great pillows or bedding as well.
Gorgeous Color, But The Dye Ran
Reviewer: Patti I absolutely love my linens I´ve purchased from Fabric-Store and this one is beautiful as well. The color, like so many other reviewers have mentioned, is a rich cardinal red. I purchased this to make Embroidered Scandinavian Designed Tea Towels for my customers, but when I went to wash the stabilizer off, the color ran and it ruined the white threads. I usually pre-wash my linen, but for some reason I didn´t this time. I´m happy this one didn´t get pre-washed because now I know and I wouldn´t want my customer´s to get the dye all over their other items in the laundry. I will make sure to add appropriate care instructions.
Reviewer: jessica I love all the linens from Fabrics-Store.com. The colors are rich and nuanced, the textures gorgeous. Everything I make turns out elegant and beautiful. (I make a lot of summer bias-cut skirts and hats.) They are easy to make, classier than shorts, and with this linen, I look dressed up kicking around the city with two little kids. I use this tutorial: http://www.crafterhoursblog.com/2011/06/dont-be-afraid-of-bias-skirt-tutorial.html
Beautiful every time. Thank you!
Pure true RED
Reviewer: Athena A pure red color without tinges of other tones (not tomato-y or purplish): an absolutely magnificent dye. The photo of the woman holding a baby in the red sling (to the right) is an excellent representation of Crimson. Please, Fabrics-Store, make this color FOREVER, in all the linen weights!
Reviewer: Marjorie This linen is, of course, wonderful, and this colour is absolutely gorgeous. It is a very rich, slightly deep red. I love it, as does everyone who sees it.
Reviewer: Nita It was perfect- great colour, great texture, I made a dress, and I love wearing it.
Reviewer: Kathy I have to add my accolades for this beautiful fabric. The color is rich and vibrant. Even after washing twice, there is a lovely sheen and the hand is perfect. This is my fourth purchase and I couldn´t be happier.
Reviewer: Donna This is a magnificent red color. It is just amazingly beautiful. I ordered 5 yards to make a gift for my daughter. She is going to love it.
I just received my 3 yards
Reviewer: diana I just received my 3 yards of Crimson Red linen IL019. Color was true to description and the weight was beautiful. I am very pleased and can´t wait to make this up. Shipping was prompt.
Great Gift for New Re-enactor
Reviewer: Karen I bought this fabric for my niece, who will be wearing it as a Turkish-style vest at an upcoming SCA event: Masque of Courtly Love.
So far, she´s loved both her gowns made from Fabrics-Store.com linen, and I see this vest as falling right into line. It´s a gorgeous color, and I wish I´d bought more so I could have a dress!
Love this cold red
Reviewer: Andrea Beautiful. This is the perfect red, deep, strong and vibrant. I bought 0.50 yards in a doggie bag sale, but it was more....enough to make a sleeveless summer top. Very happy.
Reviewer: Karen Let me first say that fabric WAS one of the things I never thought I would order online. I want to see the true color and feel the fabric. But your site had many good recommendations from folks I know so I ordered some linen.
HOOKED! This is simply the most recent item that I have ordered and I got exactly what I wanted. The weight is excellent, working with the linen is easy and (at least on my monitor) the color is true to what is shown. Sometimes the actual reds are even a tad brighter but never so off as to be misrepresented. Never a problem for me. This piece is set to become a tunic and coat for medieval reenacting. I´ll be back for more fabric as projects continue. The tunic will be out grown long before it wears out.
Great Roman tunic material
Reviewer: Paul W. Having dyed my previous tunic several times to retain its crimson color, it was a joy to find linen already dyed crimson—and it does not fade with each wash. It´s comfortable to wear, easy to sew, and does not fade in the wash (did I say that already). A great fabric for Roman reenacting.
Reviewer: Gloria This was my first time ordering linen from your company. This fabric is wonderful to work with and the drapes are beautiful. I am so pleased with my order. I will be ordering again soon.
lovely shade of red
Reviewer: gwendolen I made a dress from this colour fabric to wear to my convention. I got lots of complement.
keep up the good works! Fabrics-store.com:
Reviewer: Virginia Saturated color, great to work with. I love this fabric. Makes great handbags. Checkout our bags with this and other linen fabrics at www.aandvdesigns.etsy.com
Reviewer: Nancy I love this fabric! It is a medium weight and was easy to work with. I have washed the dress I made from it several times and it still looks wonderful. I will be ordering more in other colors

I made this thermos cover last night with a belt loop. It's made of crimson linen with a liner of fleece. I quilted it for fun. 2.5 hours to make it. One of a kind and full custom baby! I will take it outside while improving my archery.

This was a tunic using a self made pattern. It was a historical design. I really liked the rich red of the crimson and I trimmed it in black.

16th Century, "Elizabethan." Kirtle by Designs From Time. I used this gorgeous Crimson linen as the livery for the Queen's household at the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire. I wanted a fabric source that I could depend on and could make future purchases of this color as I add household members to the guild. I use FabricStore.com for ALL my client's orders for kirtles and bodices through my Etsy store and orders taken from my website.

Such a vibrant red! Love!

Loved working with this linen. It seemed to have a little less slubs than some of the other IL19 softened linen that I have purchased before in different colors. www.itshandmadebyarianne.etsy.com
Posted by Arianne
Purchased quite a lot of this fabric to create a new Norwegian Side Slit Kirtle out of. The fabric is a beautiful rich red colour, perfect for high status Viking clothing, as well as other applications. The weight is a very nice medium level which makes for a nice warmer weather wear on its own, or it would be a good level for a warm undergarment. Very happy with the product.

I made this adapted A-line dress with vertical pintucks and hemstitching for my daughter of out remnants from a top I made for myself. It was the perfect red, no hint of orange at all, and looked great with both of our complexions.
Posted by Jamie
I made this early 15th century dress from six yards of crimson linen and lined it with four yards of white. It washed well, looks wonderful, and was a joy to hand sew. Thanks!

Blue linen 18th century caraco jacket, red linen petticoat and light blue linen apron. All constructed of fabrics-store middle weight linen. My son's fall-front breeches are made of the same navy blue linen as my jacket. Perfect fabric for reenactment garb, particularly for the summer season. It was 90+ degrees when that pic was taken.
Posted by Tamara
I made this several years ago but I loved this fabric. The color is beautiful and made such a nice 14th century men's coethardie. The tippets are also made in IL019 bleach linen. I love the fabrics from this store and they are wonderful to work with.

People comment repeatedly on the beautiful color of this gown! The nearly-invisible-shift is also from your linen, as is the striped petticoat. The gown was cut using Mill Farm Patterns 'Woman's Gown - A Robe Plolnaise', and is worn over stays. Thanks for your wonderful product and service!
