This is a new, TRUE indigo dyed fabric that was created in Japan. The fabric is 100% linen (asa). It is of a light weight with a slightly open weave that makes it perfect for sashiko and other types of embroidery. The fabric would be suitable for home decor items, apparal, quilting, and accessories. Typical of 100% linen fabrics this fabric has a subtle sheen and is smooth with a crisp drape. It is airy and cool feeling.

This linen has a slightly open weave. I attempted to show this in photos 6 through 8. In the 7th photo I placed my hand behind the fabric. A slight shadow of my hand can be seen if you look closely. In the 8th photo the white color of my table can be seen through the fabric in some areas.

The 9th photo shows this indigo dyed linen alongside the indigo dyed cotton/linen blend. The linen has a deeper purple - blue indigo hue when compared to the cotton/linen blend. The blend has a slightly more blue, less purple indigo hue. This linen is also lighter in weight than the cotton/linen blend with a more "airy" look that is typical of linen. The blend can be seen here:

The last photo shows the color most accurately. Crayola brand crayons are shown for a color comparison.

Please note that indigo dyed items will often bleed or transfer color to other items. This can be reduced by prewashing the fabric. White sashiko thread may be dyed blue when it is used and washed with this fabric. Indigo dyed items can also transfer color to lighter colored fabrics so it is not recommended for use on home accessories (like cushion covers) that may be placed on lighter colored furniture or where the indigo fabric will rub against a lighter colored fabric.

*I will carefully package this fabric but please remember that this is linen and there will be some fold lines when unpackaged. Please contact me if you are interested in this fabric and wish to request a small 2x2 inch sample.

As with all linen fabrics it is best to place a cloth over the fabric prior to ironing. This will prevent the iron from creating shiny areas on the linen.

*I am always willing to provide more information or pictures regarding my fabrics or using/sewing these fabrics. Please do not hesitate to send me a convo if you have any questions.*

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor.
