Rated 5 out of 5 by CroomScM Beautiful Fabric, Not Quite As Bright
This red is not quite as bright, true red as on my computer screen, but rather a more muted red. It has a beautiful hand, great texture and sews beautifully, like every Essex linen blend I own.
I use the Essex Yarn Dyed Linens in my quilts and absolutely love the extra texture they provide. If you quilt with them, make sure to prewash them and use a smaller stitch length to prevent the seam from splitting later. I also recommend quilting heavily over the seam to make sure it stays put. A 1/2" SA instead of the 1/4" also works well.
