IL019 All-purpose Asphalt Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2), Width 59"
Our best selling Grey for many years, this slightly faded version brings a vintage vibe to a tried and true color. ASPHALT linen mimics the tone of Vicken Parson's cool, mid-grey shadows, a color suggesting the concrete pavements, rain soaked bricks and hardened metal of the urban jungle.
At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 inch wide 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.
Our FS Signature Finish was developed exclusively for us using a special process that makes this linen super soft with a comfy, classic look you'll love at first sight.
As a bonus, this process removes almost all of the initial shrinkage, giving you more fabric to get your projects done.
This finish makes the linen as soft as butter. Yep, 100% linen that feels and drapes and sews as no linen you have ever encountered. Because the fabric has been pre-shrunk for you - it will be less than the base cloth width.

Customer Questions and Answers
Since this linen is preshrunk do I need to wash it prior to sewing? What is best needle size to use? Thanks
Yes, we recommend pre-washing our fabrics prior to sewing. The best needle is a universal 80 or 90 depending on our preference or machine information booklet. For more information on both of these topics please see our Help Center: support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us
what is the signature finish
We explain all of our finishes, including the FS Signature Finish in this Help Center article: support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us/articles/4403575338253-Fabric-Finishes-Explained
This is the best linen available at the best price.
I sewed the Riva pants with this fabric and they are now my favorite pants. The softness of this linen is unparalleled.
Love the sheets made for my split King bed - cozy, comfy and durable. Store bought sheets are trashed after a few weeks because of my hubby's tough toe nails but this fabric has taken the test for a couple of months and there is not a snag nor fuzzy at all! I appreciate all the helpful articles and advice that Fabrics-store has available from what type of thread to the type of needle needle for various linens. Even the color number for thread to match the color of linen you have purchased!
I have never ordered from this store and I was a little sceptical, my fabric arrived and it was exactly as described. I made a top and I got many compliments on the color and style. I love it!
Everything I have ordered from here has been wonderful. I washed this fabric first and then made a pair of loose fitting, casual overalls. The fabric cuts and sews with ease. Next up will be a simple box tee shirt- again this beautiful color will lend itself perfectly. Thank you for such beautiful fabrics.
Self Drafted Pants made with FS ASPHALT Midweight Signature Finish Linen. These pants have been living in my brainspace for several months and while I tried to put the thought to fabric with indie designer patterns, none of them produced quite what I had in mind. Then, I met Jocie of JocieByHand (her own slow fashion brand) and she had created a pair of pants that were the closest to what I had been imagining all this time. While she wasn't selling the pants or the pattern at the time, she was very generous with her time and shared tips and techniques to try my hand at making my own personal pair.
