Essex linen in dusty blue by Robert Kaufman. Essex linen is a lovely blend of cotton and linen that’s a great weight for quilting but gives the wonderful texture of linen. It is heavier than 100% cotton, but still sews up beautifully with a lovely hand to it. The dusty blue color is a bit hard to photograph for a true color. I have included photos of the dusty blue Essex linen with white and natural Essex linen to show a comparison for the color. Fabric is new unwashed, and stored in a smoke free home.
