British based painter Tomma Abts chooses retro, in-between shades that are hard to place, particularly the dusty, vintage pink of SHADOW GREY Linen.

Woven like strips of found fabric into her abstract designs, ribbons of these unusual colors fold over and intersect with one another, creating complex visual puzzles that shift in and out of the light but never give the game away.

These soft pinks bring warmth and humanity into her works, suggesting the peachy glow of a half-lit interior.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

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).

Special order pillows

My customer wanted pink pillows made for a gift. I found this color and ordered 2 yards for her order. It's sort of a mauve pink in my opinion. She loved the pillows.

Christi profile image Love the 7.1 oz linen.

I'm making heavier weight dresses & house dresses for cold temps. The 7.1 oz hangs very well after washing. This color is really not the best for me so I'm going to put strips of other colors in the bodice to meet my coloring better. I just love all the linen weights. This store is so cost effective and you earn points with each purchase. I just cashed in my $235 worth of points to make my daughter some outfits. Their customer service Is also impeccable. i check the site daily for sales, doggie bag and new colors!

Bath towels

I ordered 3 yards of this fabric and made 4 bath towels. I had never even tried linen bath towels before, but after reading about them, thought I would give them a try. Love them. They don't get as wet as I expected and they dry much faster than terry towels. I am going to spread the word!

Fancy schmancy for towels

It was true to the color on my monitor, a mauve or dusty rose color with mild purple undertones. Easy to sew and embroider with a machine. I also made a mobius or infinity apron and the weight gives a very nice drape.

This is a really beautiful color and I was so excited to receive it. I am making euro pillow shams for my bed. It's pretty slubby And even more so after I washed it and dried it. I do find it a little difficult because the weave is looser and it moves very easily and "stretches". If I could do it over again I would've started with a stabilizer to help with that issue. Other than that it's really nice so far.

This is one of my favorite colors - a muted pink that is sophistacated. pattern is from a Japanese sewing book purchased on Etsy.

Another heavy weight house dress in Shadow Grey. This weight is so stable during sewing. I love wearing it as well, only on the cold mornings, days, in N TX. This is the only shop I get my linen at. I love their quality, color & weight choices & great customer service. Remember, the weave tightens up with washing & machine drying, which I always do several times to de-lint and shrink.

Who doesn't need a good looking, sturdy pencil case? Or maybe two or three, make it four and call it a makeup bag. Intricate detailing and geometry challenge teenagers to elevate their sewing beyond simple straight lines. This is also a great introduction to sewing zippers, and the non-traditional and simple method for inserting it helps ease their fear of zippers. The extra weight of the 4C22 Heavyweight linen gives this pencil case enough structure to stand on its own and hold its boxy shape.
