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!

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.
 
review star review star review star review star review star   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!

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: 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!

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.
 
review star review star review star review star review star   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.

IL019 CRIMSON Softened - 100% Linen 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.
