I always recommend ring-clips – not only do they draw more easily, you can adjust length and create inverted pleats, even hang a blackout layer without interfering with the flow of the linen. The easiest way to find the ring clips you want is to Google ‘drapery ring clips' and then click Images. No wading through ads or descriptions, just useful pictures.
Material: 100% Linen. Midweight "St Barts" 5.7 oz/sq. yd
58" wide x 84" long
58" wide x 96" long
Care: Machine wash with a small amount of gentle detergent, not Tide. Tumble dry on hot or medium, and remove from the dryer while still very slightly damp so wrinkles do not set. Shake the fabric out flat and smooth it with your hands. If you can dry outside, let fresh air and sun work their magic.
I was uncertain about which linen curtains to order and was sent both email and phone call responses to my many questions, making it clear to me that what was most important to RL was that I had my questions completely answered and was able to order what I really wanted. I ended up with the St. Barts linen in Mixed. They are beautiful and so nicely give me some privacy while still letting some sun and shadows pass through into my live space. They came beautifully packaged thus showing the care RL takes in creating and presenting their product from start to finish. I got brass clips to hang the curtains and no matter where life takes me I can see being able to adjust the length and/or width to suit any windows. I love looking closely at the fibers and seeing how the linen was woven - and the curtains smell delightfully earthy also !
I have it swagged to one side with an antique tie back. I am using the curtain "to close the door" from the master bedroom to its dressing room. I had removed the doors and now the curtain is the replacement. It rarely needs to be shut and so the curtain looks great swagged and ready to provide privacy when needed. Far better than doors. The 2 rooms are fitted with the very similar blue Echo curtains and natural bedskirt and duvet without the quilt on the king size bed.

I can't get enough of rough linen. I love your products and when the time came to upgrade our son's room from kid to teen your St. Bart's curtain panels where the perfect match for a previously purchased duvet cover. Thank you for making products that last a lifetime. Jen
The curtains hang like a dream-- beautiful, billowy, and pleasing to the touch. The interior of my house was recently painted and realized my curtains really clashed with the new paint colors I chose. I came across these St. Bart and Orkney Linen and have proceeded to decorate every window with them that needed an upgrade. I had been in the middle of making cotton curtains to replace the old ones, also very nice fabric, but I guess I love linen more! I just stopped sewing.
