The color is pretty spot on, only that it is a bit duller than it appears on the computer screen. That may very well be a screen setting issue.
The quality is what I have come to expect of the Essex Yarn Dyed Linen range. It has a soft hand, is heavier than mere 100% cotton, but not as heavy as pure linen. It drapes nicely and sews beautifully.
I like to use them in my quilts because they provide a textural difference - keep in mind to either increase the seam allowance to 1/2" or use a very small stitch length, similar to paper piecing (I use 1.5 when sewing with the yarn dyed linen blend).
Overall, I can only highly recommend it.
