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 medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

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).

Beautiful color
Reviewer: Elizabeth

Haven't started my project yet but plan to make a shirt using your Zina pattern. Recently made the Chelsea shirt in apricot and received so many compliments. Plan on seeing more in the winter months ahead.

Collecting Multiple Fabrics
Reviewer: Mary Lou

I have been enthralled with your linen fabrics since stumbling onto your website some months ago. I have not sewn for many years, but discovering you & your fabrics has inspired me to start sewing again! So far, I've just been collecting various fabrics & downloading the patterns I want to use. So I have no experience with them yet except for loving the feel & the color of each. Be patient with me until I can begin the actual process of creating an item! Thank you for your fabric & pattern offerings, as well as for the accompanying stories! What a class company!!

Old Rose
Reviewer: Denise

I hesitated to order this because many times the screen photo is different when you get it The name shadow grey threw me off but this is the most beautiful old rose mauve color. I haven't used it yet but I do absolutely love it and will be ordering more.

Should have pink in the name!
Reviewer: Susan

Finally a pink that I can wear. My stash has a pile of fabrics tending toward bubble gum and peach, awful for me, but this color is wonderful. Color is subjective of course, but I would never pair the word 'grey' with this one--it's definitely worth buying a swatch if you aren't sure.

Absolutely Love This Color
Reviewer: Nancy

I was so pleased when I received this fabric. The color is lovely! I had enough to make pants, a tank and a wrap sleeveless top. It's easy to sew and looks so expensive. My favorite fabric.

Anne profile image Made Amazing Pillow Cases
Reviewer: Anne

My son & his wife celebrated their 12th (linen) anniversary so I made them pillow cases. I used the bleached ivory for the main portion and gray for the tab and shadow gray (pink) for the cuff. They came out so nice.

Anne profile image The Color!
Reviewer: Anne

I thought the photo of this color was wrong since it's shadow gray, but it's beautiful. The gray peaks thru the softest dusty rose. I used it in pillow cases and they turned out amazing.

Leigh profile image Color a little off, but still lovely
Reviewer: Leigh

The color is a bit greyer than pictured, but it's still a lovely shade of pink. I'm finding that often the color isn't as pictured, so you kinda just have to be OK with it being close. Otherwise, it's a nice weight linen. It was easy to work with and resulted in some lovely pieces.

Beautiful color, darker and grayer than pictured
Reviewer: Lisa

This is a beautiful color, though it was a bit closer to my flesh than I would have hoped since I made it into a dress. The photo makes it look a little brighter than it is. But the drape is lovely and it's very soft!

Perfect color
Reviewer: Amie

To say i'm in love with this color is an understatement. It's the perfect blush color. The fabric itself is perfect as usual. Please keep this color for ever!

I love the color so much! Cannot wait to go out with my new dress.

I had such a lovely experience sewing the Hallon dress. My friend Sanna is the designer behind Paradise Patterns and gifted me this pattern (not in exchange for anything, just for fun) when she released it in March. I chose the FS Midweight in SHADOW GREY for this dress, a lovely shade of mauve, perfect for this deceptively simple pattern.

To make the Zina shirtdress pattern, I chose the SHADOW GREY linen in 5.3 Oz because it's so summery and compliments various tones already in my closet. The weight of this linen is perfect for fall transitioning and layering.
