Fossil Fern fabric by Benartex has been in production for nearly 20 years, beginning in 1996 with 37 colors. By 2006 there were 160 colors. However in 2012 Benartex began the process of reducing the number of colors offered to 100 colors. We still continue to carry as many colors of Fossil Fern as Benartex has in supply, and currently have increased it to 133 colors.
The subtle change of color and scale make it beautiful in piecing or applique.
We make every attempt to display our fabric images as accurate as possible in terms of color. We cannot guarantee the fabric colors are 'exactly' the same as the real material due in part to variances in desktop scanners and digital cameras but also in large to variations of computer monitors, video cards, operating systems, and internet browsers. These effects cause any combination of scenarios as to how the image displays on your monitor.
The Benartex style number for this line is 528 followed by a color number(s) or letter(s) (or a combination). However if you are trying to match a piece you have, we strongly recommend that you send us a sample of the Fossil Fern fabric you wish to match, it is just too difficult to do online. Some of the color variations are just too subtle to see.
