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 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".

Lovely grayish pink color that plays well with several other colors of linen including greys, & natural linen. Surprisingly it could be be considered a neutral. I bought it on a whim & wasn't 100% sure I liked it until I made a color blocked tunic using shadow grey and gray whisper in the handkerchief weights. Ordered more to make a breezy pair of summer pants.

Made some cute wrap-around pants from the many DIY patterns on Pinterest. Curved the bottoms to create in a tulip style. Loved the results. I will post a picture.

Reviewer: Kate

I agree with a previous reviewer. This color is incredible and I love it , but it isn't what I would think of as grey. It's a very subtle shade of pink with a touch of mauve. Maybe call it "shadow rose"? I bought some of it in the handkerchief linen weight for a long sleeved shirt. It's going to be gorgeous. I'll wear it with a jacket made of Montana Grape. The colors look wonderful together.

Reviewer: Jana

All the colors on my monitor have been pretty true to the swatches I've received and fabrics ordered. But this fabric looks like one of the wonderful warm pinks that you might get from avocado pit dye. Is it really grey?
