IL019 All-purpose Shadow Grey Softened - 100% Linen Fabric - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2), Width 59"
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 medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 59 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).

Any suggestion for thread color? Thanks in advance. After the holidays I'm excited to start sewing for ME!

Picture shows a pinkish color. Name says grey. It's like the color of a Sterling Rose. Very soft beautiful color. The texture is light and flowy. Love it!
Haven't started my project yet but plan to make a shirt using your Zina pattern. Recently made the Chelsea shirt in apricot and received so many compliments. Plan on seeing more in the winter months ahead.
I have been enthralled with your linen fabrics since stumbling onto your website some months ago. I have not sewn for many years, but discovering you & your fabrics has inspired me to start sewing again! So far, I've just been collecting various fabrics & downloading the patterns I want to use. So I have no experience with them yet except for loving the feel & the color of each. Be patient with me until I can begin the actual process of creating an item! Thank you for your fabric & pattern offerings, as well as for the accompanying stories! What a class company!!
I hesitated to order this because many times the screen photo is different when you get it The name shadow grey threw me off but this is the most beautiful old rose mauve color. I haven't used it yet but I do absolutely love it and will be ordering more.
Finally a pink that I can wear. My stash has a pile of fabrics tending toward bubble gum and peach, awful for me, but this color is wonderful. Color is subjective of course, but I would never pair the word 'grey' with this one--it's definitely worth buying a swatch if you aren't sure.
I decided to go with FS SHADOW GREY Midweight Softened Linen for the shirt. I was after a softer shade, as there was a chance I might disappear in the shirt's oversized silhouette. From the photos in the listing, I had pictured a powder pink tone, however, I found it more of a mauve pink in real life.
