Quintessential Irish Linen 150 refers to the weight of this fabric. At 150gsm (grams per square meter) this is the perfect weight for classic shirts and blouses.

A very beautiful deep yellow linen, with a lovely golden hue. Slightly lighter than true mustard, I’ve called this Golden Honey.

pattern Suggestions

Lightweight Linen lends it’s hand to so many beautiful projects, but may I suggest a few for you:

Olya Shirt by Paper Theory Patterns

Kate Top by Tesutti Patterns

Kalle Shirt by Closet Case Patterns

Maya Top by Marilla Walker

And many MANY more

This weight would also be perfect for beautiful napkins or for needlework and embroidery.


It is recommended to always pre-wash your fabric prior to starting your project. I would also recommend overlocking or zig-zagging the cut ends before your wash your fabric to help cut down on fraying in the machine.

Linen is best washed at 30 degrees.

Many recommend not to tumble dry Linen, but if you choose to, do it on a low heat and remove it while it is still slightly damp and iron straight away to minimise creasing. 

Lots of steam while ironing will also help remove creases.
