Wassily Kandinsky lived and breathed color, letting it infiltrate his entire life. His impassioned, ferocious paintings are a testament to this, with their noisy, clanging clashes of dazzling brilliance that exude a spirit of endless optimism and hope. He was a great leader in the 20th century European avant-garde, taking art into the great and unchartered territory of abstraction. 

The smoky, soft pink of LILAS appeared often in Kandinsky’s art, a dreamy, mysterious shade lifted from his imagination that he brought into sun-soaked bodies, sketchy mountaintops and even the ambiguous haze of abstract space.

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.

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).

Ok has to be a favorite color
Reviewer: Samona

The color reminds me of the Barbara Streisand Rose. Absolutely gorgeous. If my skin tones could take it, I would have a shirt made out of this. But, I am putting together a simple patch quilt made out of linen. Excited

Beautiful
Reviewer: Jamie

This is definitely not mauve and barely pink-toned, but it is a very pretty purple.

Gorgeous color, I like to wear a similar shade in lipsticks! I made a skirt but I'm thinking of ordering more to make a throw blanket to go with my light grey bed linen.

Rich warm lilac
Reviewer: Anne

The photos don't do this color justice. It's earthy and lush, without the coolness of a lot of lilac shades. Another that I ordered more of as soon as I received my first order.

This color reminds me of French Lilacs
Reviewer: Judith

A pink toned Lavender to my eye. Thinking it could make some beautiful accents, color blocking, or in larger Doggie Bag but under a yard, gorgeous bias that could be applied to make Celtic designs for a pillow. I haven't pulled out my Montana Grape piece yet, which I suspect it would be spectacular against. J

Reviewer: Elizabeth

A really gorgeous color! I like that it is grayed down a little. I'd call it a muted lilac with a hint of pink in it. Really lovely.

lovely mauve
Reviewer: Heather

Lilas is a lovely mauve color. It's on the bluer/grayer end of pink and goes beautifully with IL019 wildcherry. It's also good with beet, but not as well matched with dulse. When held next to lilas, I can see why Fabrics-store lists shadow grey (taupe) as a brown.

After printing out the Agustina Boxy Top pattern, I was delighted to find that it requires so little fabric that I was able to squeeze one out from the Lilas that I had left over after making a knee-length dress. This color is like dusty rose and looks great with silvery grey denim.

Oh, this color! I knew when it came out I had to have it. With my complexion, I look good in the purples family of colors and pink, but it needs to be a cool, mauve-ish pink, which this is. Here I have hacked the Hinterland dress from Sew Liberated in an attempt to replicate a dress I saw on Pinterest. Success!

I would describe this color as a dusty lilac. Very pretty! I made a Willow baby pinafore by Sunflower Seams Co.

I love it! I made a long gathered skirt and I adore it. It's a purply-pink, a lovely mauve. It's a tad lighter IRL than in my picture or the listing picture.
