Tablecloths are also available in Smooth linen.
The charm of Orkney is its texture, which comes from the old looms, whose maximum width is 58". The advantage of the more finely woven Smooth linen is its 118" width, so it makes a flowing, full tablecloth for virtually any size table.
Both are simple and elegant. Orkney always has deep hems, Smooth Linen can also come with the raw edge much loved by stylists, and a pintuck 3" in. Layer the two fabrics for extra finish, the smooth undercloth longer than the textured overcloth by 3" to 5" all round.
Material: 100% Linen. Heavyweight "Orkney"
square 58" wide x 58"
long 58" 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.
Other: 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 is too short to sit on! 10" to 12" is usual.
For wider tables and rounds I 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.
I have a full fledged addiction to Orkney linen. I love the texture and heft...I have table cloths and napkins in black and natural and decided to get white after perfecting my technique for getting red wine stains out. I’m smitten with this beautiful,cream coloured,textural delight.
Shipping was slow, perhaps due to the holidays, but the product was worth the wait. Great, heavy linen, good color saturation. I will definitely buy another
I own several products from Rough Linen; bed linens, an orkney comforter cover, a pinafore, a linen scarf and my beloved bathrobe . I always think the latest one is my favorite but the truth is, I love them all! This year for my birthday I treated myself to an Orkney Tablecloth which I have wanted for quite a while. I feel orkney linen has soul. It may sound strange but it's true. It's the special piece my grandma might have passed down to me from her life in Europe. It has lines, wrinkles and character. It's a workhorse of a fabric as well. I used it for my Thanksgiving dinner because even though it's so casual, it's also so special. My guests proceeded to spill all kinds of stuff on it. With guidance from Tricia, all the stains came out and it's as beautiful as ever! I highly recommend this amazing tablecloth, as well as all the fabulous products from Rough Linen. Thank you, Tricia for a level of quality you don't find often these days!
I love the Orkney Linen collection. Having purchased the duvet set, pinafore, and table runner already, I jumped at the chance to purchase the the tablecloth at a special discount and absolutely love it on my dining room table. The feel and weight add rustic elegance to the table and I will be enjoying it for many years. Thank you Rough Linen!
