IL020 Handkerchief Hedge Green Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Light (3.7 oz/yd2), Width 58"
Color was a driving force in the Surrealist art of Joan Miro, pulsing through his images with a passionate and rhythmic energy.
The fresh, cool and minty shade of HEDGE GREEN linen appeared often, sometimes as small accents peppered across the canvas like miniature jewels, other times splashed in great streaks of expression, or even soaked deep into the weave of the canvas with the depth of the ocean. Time and time again, we see how he enjoyed the way this color could introduce sharp, zesty freshness into his art.
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
Does this color exist in a medium weight? I do needlefelted art and need something a little more sturdy. I can only find this light version when I search.
If you have searched this color and the lightweight is all that comes up, then i'm sorry that is the only base we have it available on.
what is the shrinkage for this fabric?
Based on our recommended wash instructions you can anticipate a 7-10% shrinkage. Please follow this link to find out more information support.fabrics-store.com/hc/en-us/articles/4403190857485-Fabric-Shrinkage
Maureen, Is this too light for dinner napkins? Have to make 20 for an upcoming friend's wedding.
The IL020 has been used for napkins especially if a particulate color is needed and they have turned out beautifully. If a linen is needed that is a bit heavier the next weight up is the IL019 or 1C64.
Is this linen weight - IL020 Softened - the best choice for making bed sheets? It feels so smooth and light. Insomniacs will be cured! Do you have a pattern for queen-size bed sheets?
Some customers have used this linen for sheets if a lighter weight linen is preferred otherwise they will use the middleweight IL019 or 1C64. We have a free pattern that you will find on our site for sheets. It is under the category for patterns at the top of the main site.
Hi there! Is the lightweight hedge green linen suitable for clothing? Will it be see through? Thanks !
The hedge green is suitable for clothing and is not considered too see through.
I purchase this linen strictly based on its color (& the fact I have ordered many pieces of linen from Fabric Store). While I have not yet made the shirt I'm planning to make, color did not disappoint. Gorgeous
This is the Fabric-Store Zina Top Pattern (I have reviewed this on the Thread blog in both shirt and shirt dress form) ;) - the hedge green in this light weight linen makes this the favorite staple piece in my closet.
This is such a lovely soothing shade of green. II think the thumbnail is deceiving as to the actual color, it is not so yellow in person. The posts by Maureen are more accurate as to color. Exactly what I was looking for! I plan to use this for a throw quilt backing and the tighter weave and light weight is perfect. I think I will be back for more to make some pillow covers too!
I plan to use this fabric for a Civil War era gown.I am delighted by the quality and the weight of this fabric. The color is not one I wold have been drawn to initially, and I was hesitant about ordering it, but it is a lovely shade of green. I can't wait to begin this project!
The dress is sewn up in luscious lightweight linen in Hedge Green, which is a sage or minty teal- like shade that I am obsessed with. The Nico dress is a bias cut piece, giving this basic silhouette some subtle drape and flow, a little more elegant version of your average tank dress.
