4C22 Rustic Ginger Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Heavy (7.1 oz/yd2), Width 57"
GINGER Linen's rich caramel shade filled Kurt Schwitters's art. Made
from the ephemera of his daily life in 1920s Germany, almost anything
could be thrown into the mix in torn scraps of color and texture.
Through his endlessly complex designs, pushing back and forth in a bid for our attention, the prismatic arrangements of natural, near flesh tones seemed somehow inherently linked to the human experience. Uniting them was the golden-brown of Ginger which created an overriding mood of warmth and familiarity.
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).

Customer Questions and Answers
Best weight for slipcovers
We recommend the heavier weight linens our 4C22, IL090 and IL095
I'm not trying to match the linen I bought with anything soI suppose I'll use what I got, but I was really looking forward to a fabric that was ginger colored. This is brown. It's just brown. It doesn't even pretend to be close to "ginger". I guess I should have read more reviews. It appears I am not alone in my disappointment.
When I ordered this fabric, I was hoping for more of a mustard color. It's not mustard, but has more brown in it. But still, it's a wonderful color! It made into a beautiful apron. (but still hoping for a true mustard:)
This color coordinated with a paisley linen to make a linen quilt! Love the softened quality.
I did ask for a sample before I ordered this fabric, With that tiny piece of fabric, I knew it was perfect for my project. I'm excited to get started and know i will be purchasing more in other colors for all the projects that came to mind after receiving and handling this fabric.
Let me preface this by saying I love the look and feel of this linen. However, the color is NOT ginger; it's more akin to cocoa powder, with the barest, often unnoticeable hint of gold, and only in some light. This is not the first shipment I've gotten that is very, very different than the swatch online. A couple of months ago I got a beautiful turquoise...that ended up being a light medium blue. As much as I hate the wait of getting a fabric swatch, I highly recommend it, if color matters. My vision of a ginger colored light overcoat are currently undergoing a massive adjustment in my psyche. (BTW, the three stars are solely because of the color variance from both the swatch and description.)
This was my first order, surely not my last :-) We are homesteaders with a small farm and we do medieval reenactment, viking period. This linen is perfect for any medieval use, beautiful color and a very nice weave. I turned it into a simple, but very elegant viking tunic, here pictured with a wool over tunic. Can´t wait to get more of these fantastic colors that work so perfect for my purpose :-)
I wanted a throw for my sofa that would match in color as closely as possible. Ginger turned out to be perfect! I see others have remarked on their perception of the color but for me it can look more ginger-y in some lights and sometimes more of a muted cocoa... but it is definitely a ginger. I thought creating all the fringe would be tedious but it was actually enjoyable and meditative. Now I need to make more fringed items! PS my pillow covers are also made from 4C22 in Rustic Navy ... over 10 years ago! The color and fabric has held up great.
Whenever I pick a pattern, I always look for a unique, defining feature in its construction. Whether it's beautifully sloping princess seams, a gentle v-shaped yoke, or one shoulder and arm piece for a button-down shirt, I love recreating little details for a high quality garment. The Capucine shirt is no exception.
I used a lot of that heavy weight fabric for my bags that I sell on my Etsy shop ChooseLinen (please check for more of my bags and garments).. I particularly like this color which is definitely not ginger (as many other reviewers mentioned) - I named it "camel". Besides the incorrect color description, the fabric quality is excellent!
