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 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! 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.

Exquisite color

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!

Hedge Green Handkerchief Linen

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.

This time I chose a ruffle dress from AYOminipatterns. This dress can be worn in summer or winter. Linen fabric is perfect for this project. In the first version of the dress, I used midweight hedge green linen fabric and took floral cotton for the front.
