The milk-white hue of TADELAKT linen evokes the smooth, polished surfaces of Barbara Hepworth's ground-breaking and sensuous marble sculptures.

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".

Sarah profile image Works well in a natural palette
Reviewer: Sarah

First of all, the IL020 weight is my new favourite for tops. For years I have eschewed collars, buttons and woven blouses in general, but lately I find that a woven linen blouse under a sweater can extend the wool season as it's less clammy than a knit top would be. A bonus is that when the sweater comes off midday, the shirt doesn't smell. Like other reviewers, I see a slight greenish tint to Tadelakt, especially when I hold it next to Krista, which is has strong yellow tones, although both fabrics would definitely qualify as off-white. I wonder if Tadelakt is made with less bleached linen. In any case, it looks great with everything I've set it next to, including olive drab made with natural green cotton, and undyed handspun wool in some tricky cardboard-like tones.

Kelley profile image Prefer the 019
Reviewer: Kelley

I thought this would be a lovely fabric for summer tops, but I find that the color has slightly green undertones and is somewhat stiff and rough even after washing. For clothing, I much prefer the 019 in signature finish, which runs about the same price and is softer and, in my opinion, richer in color. That said, this would work for home goods that require some stiffness or sheerness. I may try washing a second or third time to gain softness.

Reviewer: Syd

This is a lovely light linen perfect for my 18th century chemise. It took to hand sewing beautifully and is almost a very very pale greenish off-white.
