The milk-white hue of TADELAKT linen evokes the smooth, polished surfaces of Barbara Hepworth's ground-breaking and sensuous marble sculptures.

At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 58 inch wide 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Customer Questions and Answers


Would this color be somewhat similar to the midweight Antique White? If not do you have a suggestion for another lightweight linen that's closer to antique white.

This is close to antique white, it is a touch warmer in color. To see it in person, please consider ordering a sample.

Looking for a creamy white fabric for a Roman shade. Would this fabric work?

This fabric is quite sheer if that is the look you are going for, otherwise we recommend our IL019 and 4C22 fabrics for roman shades.

very sheer

I ordered the IL020 Tadelakt from the doggie bag sale hoping it would work for a summer sleeveless top.....unfortunately its way too sheer for that. It did make very nice double layer napkins with an embroidered edge though, so all is well. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does have a slight greenish tinge. The quality is great as with all the linens I've purchased here!

Changing earlier review--Pretty fabric and easy to sew with.

My first review noted green undertones in the fabric. I have since sewn it up and am very pleased. I don't notice them at all. I made a puff sleeve top and love it.

IL020 TADELAKT Softened - 100% Linen

The color of linen I received does not look anything like the picture. It's more green. Not anything like I want.

A lovely texture!

Tadelakt came in with that vaguely off-green color, which I liked and planned to work with. After a pre-wash to shrink the fabric further, the weave tightened into a lovely, strong yet supple hand and that green tinge diminished into an almost-cream color. It will blend with creams and browns beautifully, and make a lovely, sturdy embroidered blouse. Now that I tried the doggie bag sample, I'm getting more!

I made some lounge dresses, left is Tadelakt, right is unbleached, 3.5 box. Replacing my current ones because I cannot wear man made fibers including the most recent cottons. Love this linen, wish the lightweight came in more of the medium toned colors for summer dresses. The light is too see through. Haven't tried dyeing yet, soon.

This is FS TADELAKT 3.5oz for a lightweight neutral linen shirt. The FS Zina shirt pattern is marked so you can have two pockets, one pocket or no pockets but we voted for the one pocket option. You can read more about this project here:
