OLIVE BRANCH Linen's earthy green rolls outwards across Hieronymus Bosch's fantastical scenes, forming endless pastures of muddy grass and fervent trees that evoke the utopian paradise of Eden. His paintings are brimming with moralizing stories about life, love, loss, and repentance, as impish humans, birds, fish, insects, and machines form mini-dramas that play out in a complex myriad of theatrical sequence.
But it is the paradisiacal, olive green landscape that unites them, a soft neutral with golden undertones, which, when bedecked with small patches of glistening jewel tones, sparkles with vitality and life.

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.

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).

One of my favorites! Getting a great shade of 'olive' fabric is difficult but this one is perfect!

Olive Branch is my new favorite

I have roman shades in my kitchen that are olive, white and light blue and I wanted to make drapes to go with them. I ordered samples and olive branch and powder blue were perfect matches. I made drapes in bleached, with a border of olive branch and powder blue, and they are gorgeous. Not colors I would have ever really thought of putting together, but I love it. Going to order some more to do a few more projects.

Lovely fabric!

I used 3 yards of the olive branch linen to make a couple tunics. The fabric is a lovely natural brownish green color and was very easy to sew with. My fabric came quickly and was beautiful! It is a great weight for clothing, and the tunics get softer with each wash.

This linen was the PERFECT choice for a new base layer for my Elven Ranger kit for Ren Faire this year. (The long sleeved garment in the photo.) Just thick enough to not be too light, while being super breathable... an absolute necessity for hot Faire days when wearing leather armor. It was a dream to work with, as well, especially for an amateur just getting started.

The perfect shade of 'olive'! I used the medium weight 'olive branch' linen for the pinafore section of this little girl's outfit.

Perfect shade of 'olive' linen fabric for this dress! Made by Lyn Tayler Lee for 'Era Of Make Believe'! etsy.com/listing/1159118634/girls-nordic-woodland-hobbit-wedding?click_key=ede3e213af52750f124f2e527c128ecda901b499%3A1159118634&click_sum=fa75dac6&ref=shop_home_active_19&frs=1&sts=1

Absolutely in LOVE with this linen! It sews like a dream and drapes beautifully. The olive colour is perfect and I really like mid weight linen for the coziness factor. I'm so dang comfortable in these pants while still feeling stylish and hip. It's safe to say I have a linen addiction! Shirt is in IL020 bleached linen. Clyde work pant pattern by Elizabeth Suzann

A friend made this dress for me as I am a beginner/learning to sew. I love it! Very earthy color.
