The charm of Orkney is its texture, which comes from the old looms, whose maximum width is 52". If you are in need of a wider tablecloth, our Smooth Linen goes up to 117" width, allowing for a flowing, full tablecloth for virtually any size table.
Both our Orkney and Smooth Linen are simple and elegant. Orkney features deep hems and Smooth Linen has a raw edge option much loved by stylists. You can layer our two linen tablecloths for extra finish: use a slightly larger Smooth Linen Tablecloth underneath, with the textured Orkney Linen Tablecloth on top with a 3" to 5" all-round reveal.
Material: 100% Linen. Heavyweight Orkney 7.7 oz/sq. yd

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.
Crease Release: Tablecloth can be spread on the table and sprayed lightly in situ (not if your table is French polished!) to make fold lines disappear. Just dampen and smooth it with your hands.
Tables vary in width and length, but the drop should not be less than 8", and generally not more than 15"– a practical length, as it doesn't get caught underneath you when you sit down! A 10" to 12" drop is typical.
For wider tables and rounds, we can extend Orkney by seaming in quadrants, far smarter and more tailored than side panels – think of a hot cross bun. Round tablecloths always have a stabilized raw edge for drape and fluidity, rather than a hem.
I needed a custom size for a charcoal Orkney table cloth. I cannot believe how quickly Trisha turned around a custom order. It was delivered extremely quickly, and in the usual wonderful packaging. Thank you%, we are enjoying it. I feel like Fall and Winter require tablecloths with deeper colors and I have paired this with a dijon colored quilted table runner. There's another idea for you, Trisha quilted linen placemats and table runners.
Fantastic! It cleans well if you follow recommended washing instructions. And it looks beautiful on the table - especially with linen napkins.
Everything was great
It’s not my first or last item to purchase from Rough Linen. I purchase the largest size. I wish you had one more size up.
Great buying experience. I came to roughlinen.com after reading a Wirecutter article: "The Best Napkins and Tablecloth". I was looking for a durable, timeless tablecloth to protect my reclaimed oak wooden surface. Tricia and Jennifer answered all of my questions, helped me choose a tablecloth, and gave good, relevant advice based on my needs. Thank you both for your patience and advice, and for creating such a beautiful tablecloth. I went with the Orkney Linen Tablecloth in Charcoal and I am very happy with it!
