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.

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.
