Hovering somewhere between green, blue and soft grey, MEADOW linen has a mysterious ambiguity, like misty fog gathering over a salty sea. In French Impressionist Claude Monet's hand, this color was transformed into flickering patches of cold, airy morning light or a smoggy, enveloping haze. The mutable, changeable nature of this color reflected Monet's fascination with the fleeting nature of space and atmosphere.

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).

Lovely color and hand!

I can't wait to sew with this fabric! It's even more soft after washing it.

Sheer and very blue

The linen is lovely and smooth but it's quite sheer and the color is much more light blue than the pale green pictured. Other colors I have ordered (besides Turquoise midweight) have been very accurate

I'm obsessed with this weight of linen - can't get enough of it! Lovely feel and drape, light and airy, but not transparent. Absolute pleasure to play with!

Shae profile image Perfect Weight For Tops

I had no pattern in mind when I purchased this linen. I washed and dried it twice, ironed edges with steam, then made a Tunic. It developed as I went, adding lace inserts and flared cuffs to sleeves. I will be buying more if this gorgeous linen!

Back of tunic using Tina Givens pattern.

Tina Givens pattern using Meadow and Sphinx along with some quilting cotton fabric to mix it up. I love how linens and cottons easily combine together making for endless design possibilities!

This was my first doggie bag purchase, and I'm very pleased. This lightweight softened linen is perfect for a breezy summer top like this McCall's 8116 (SierraMcCall's Misses' Tops), which is a faux wrap top with a narrow elastic casing hidden in the seam allowance in back. This color will look great with white pants.

A wonderful shade of blue linen fabric which is great for making kid's shirts and tops!
