Dark, brooding and dramatic, the intense blue of COBALT linen was ideal for Renaissance painter Jacopo Vignali's heightened, operatic scenes.
A leading painter in the Florentine Seicento, Vignali's Baroque paintings were defined by flowing swathes of jewel-toned fabric in midnight blues and crimson reds; set amidst theatrical, directional light, these richly toned colors amplify the romantic agony and tragedy of his stories.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Reviewer: Anne

I bought this fabric to make tea towels for one of my customers who wanted linen indigo tea towels to sell in her coffee shop. This fabric and color is very luxurious. I was proud to deliver them to her, and she is proud to sell these gorgeous towels.

Excellent Weight, Just heavy enough
Reviewer: Anonymous

I love this fabric. I had an overdress made for Renaissance Fair, middle class woman. Has a good heft to it without dragging one down. And only needed lining to the top portion as it draped so well on its own.

Instant Hardwearing Tablecloth
Reviewer: Michelle

I bought two yards of this beautiful indigo-hued linen from the Doggie Bag, double-turned and machine stitched the raw edges. Presto, instant tablecloth. Some serious machine washing and drying later, it is soft but substantial, with a heavy drape. Looks great straight from the dryer without ironing. It will go to reenactment events with me to turn a white plastic craft table into something elegant, and to picnics to turn a park table into a clean, attractive eating surface. It's good enough for Thanksgiving at home too. The color does \"weather\" a bit in hot water, so if you want it American-flag crisp, use cold and iron on reverse.

great color
Reviewer: Julie

This dark, dark blue is exactly what I was looking for to sew up a pair of everyday, comfortable pants that I can wear with almost everything I own. I love how they feel, sew up so easily and are very easy to care for. The best!

I love this fabric. I used it to make a pair of Viking Rus Pants and my customer LOVED it! The color was perfect and the fabric is easy to work with.

Lighter than shown
Reviewer: Susanne

This color is more like a pair of denim blue jeans once its washed. Not the almost navy it shows. In the end I preferred what I got. Though I hesitate on choosing other colors as the Vineyard green was off as well. I love the fabric so much though, I'll chance it and hope for the best.

love this color
Reviewer: Monica

This is one of the best \"blues\" out there. The color is rich and stays well after multiple washings.

I used the cobalt to make the Paola Workwear Jacket (a free pattern offered by Fabric-store and a must try!). *I altered the pockets and reversed the button side for a men's jacket. The cobalt was very similar to the color as seen on my screen. As always, please with my linen order!

I made tea/barista towels with this beautiful cobalt linen. These are sold in a coffee shop and they could not be more pretty. The weight is terrific and the color is rich even after washing.

Cloche hat made from the heavier weight linen.

Cobalt 4C22 heavy linen Viking Rus Pants. Customer was very happy with them!

Posted by Judi

I sew mostly everyday garments. I love wearing linen year around. This jacket is made from Heavy Rustic Black 4C22. After 2 washes it starts to show the Indigo. I love it.

The cloak. I love it though wouldn't suggest lining it with linen also. Even though I reinforced all the vertical seams with non stretch twill tape, it still grows longer when I wear it, then goes back to the length I made it. lol

Posted by Susanne

This cloak was made with the Heavy Rustic outer shell and the inside was lined with medium weight, Vineyard Green. Tip. Zigzag the ends together to prevent fraying and make a loop when you go to wash it to get the glazing finish out of it and shrink it.Less twisting. 7 yards just winds like a rope and its hard getting the deep creases out. Use a good quality iron and spray bottle. Then you'll just love your new fabric. I used 14 yards in total. I go to my local fabric store and nothing compares to this great fabric.

Posted by Susanne

I use fabric-store fabric for most of the dark ages clothing I sell at events, love the predictability and repeatability of colors and weights. They always have 100% flax linen with a great hand in a variety of weights - I've used them all! Love their fabrics!!!
