Contemporary German painter Tomma Abts makes curiously familiar, yet entirely abstract artworks resembling intricate childhood puzzles, folded origami or tactile scraps of textile laid out on top of one another.

Nostalgic faded or retro color schemes include soft shades of off-white and pale beige like ANGORA, alongside other equally intriguing in-between shades. The quiet, understated nature of her art has captured public attention in the last few decades precisely because it stands so at odd with the brash, attention-grabbing tactics of so many contemporary artists.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 58 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

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).

Would this be a good weight for slipcovers ?

It can and has been used for slipcovers for items that are not considered "High Use" if it is then you may want to consider a heavier linen. Ordering a swatch to see the linen will also help in making your choice.

What does this color look like, compared to FS Antique White? Is it a creamy white? Thank you.

It is not as clean as the Antique white, ti has a nice slight beige undertone.

Please describe this angora shade? For example: Is it white with a yellow cast? White with a pink cast? Is the color cool, or warm?

Love this fabric

This linen makes the most beautiful towels. It is such a great weight and color. I have been so happy with the fabric I have bought from you. In fact, this is my second order for this color. I also have this fabric in three other colors.

I made Size 2 Mykonos Pattern without any mods and I am smitten. The construction is certainly not for the faint of heart with its many steps and finicky chest pocket and collar insertion, but in the end, it comes together cleverly. Get ready for a lot of top-stitching. I used a combination of softened linen in muted colorways fungi, desert sand, angora, and apple cinnamon. Some neat features include the hidden inside chest pocket buttons, the clean curved front hem, and the triangular side panels.
