Material: 100% Linen. Heavyweight Orkney.
square 56" wide x 56"
long 56" wide x 108"
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 spread on 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.
At last I have a tablecloth that fits my wide table, with ample drape. I ordered a regular white tablecloth and a charcoal Orkney overlay. They look gorgeous together, and I’ll be able to use the white cloth with other linens. I look forward to a very dramatic table!
This is my third Orkney tablecloth. The first was in the natural shade for everyday use. Then I purchased a custom size in black for my extended holiday table...loved the look of it so much I ordered another in a smaller size. Damp dry it, put it on the table and voila! Perfection when it dries!
I love the charol color and the weight of the linen. The fabric is gorgeous. I also love the attentiveness of Trish and her team. I have bought items many times from Rough Linen and will continue to do so. Love the quality of my purchases.
We just received our Rough Linen Orkney tablecloth. It is beautiful - exactly as I wanted. Our table is long and narrow so I needed it to be a custom order to get the size we needed. It may sound odd for me to say this, but working with Jennifer and Karen to make sure the measurements would work was the best part of ordering. I am very cautious in general about making special orders - no need to worry - with Jennifer and Karen "holding my hand" I knew it would be fine. The tablecloth will look lovely by itself on our dining room table, especially with white linen napkins, and also perfect as a backdrop for some of my other tablecloths that would otherwise be too small. I look forward to sending photos when we are next setting the table. I have ordered from Rough Linen before (the bread bag, bolsters for our bed, linen bath towels which are so wonderful in the summer) and I know I will order again - there are a number of other things on my wish list in including a custom sized shower curtain.)! Truly, I cannot say enough about how pleased I am - and certainly, if you have any concerns about placing a special order, have no fear!
