British painter Roger Hilton was one of the most pioneering abstract painters of his generation, emerging out of the mid-20th century with a bold and uncompromising style.

Striking passages of color are a vital ingredient in Hilton’s paintings, particularly the warm ginger tone of CAMEL Linen, which appears again and again throughout his career. This color’s ambiguous shade could allow Hilton to invoke various real-world references, from the warmth of human skin to the glow of golden earth caught glinting in the sun.

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


Hi there, I am a novice at sewing. but am highly interested in sewing my own clothing. With this fabric being 100% linen, how easily does it wrinkle? And what fabric blend can you recommend to lessen wrinkling?

Linen will wrinkle with some, like this one and 1C64 wrinkling a bit less due to the construction. Even our linen/cotton blends will wrinkle it just depends on your comfort level.

Autumn Leaves

This order arrived so quickly! I fell in love with the color immediately. Someone commented that it was more brown than orange. Imagine instead the leaves of late October. It's gorgeous! The weight is perfect. Though it is very lightweight, it isn't see through at all. I put my hand underneath it and couldn't see it. It's absolutely perfect for Southern California hot summers either as a blouse or a dress. Can't wait to choose which!

I love this fabric and it was perfect for my new grandson's first Easter outfit. It embroidered so nicely and has such a beautiful drape. It's the perfect weight for Arizona.
