As outerwear and underwear, linen has clothed men, women, and children from birth to death—the rich and powerful, poor and pitiful alike. Into this cultural history Kathleen weaves personal narratives and the words and songs of individual spinners, factory workers, and outworkers like Sarah McCabe, who created fabulous linen lace; Sarah Leech, who wrote poetry as she spun fine thread; the three Patterson women, who worked in Mossley Mill for a total of one hundred years; and the Herdman brothers, who settled in county Tyrone to build a mill and a utopian community.
It is nearly impossible to tell any story, let alone the history of Irish linen, without using textile terms in the descriptive narrative. Many of these words, separated from the text as sidebar comments, are sprinkled throughout each chapter of the book. An extraordinary book, well researched, beautifully written, stunningly illustrated.

As 10 million Irish moved from their homeland during the past four centuries, they carried their love for Irish linen with them.
Kathleen Curtis Wilson eloquently describes this saga in her beautifully illustrated book on linen, the queen of fabrics. Ferris, Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, — Kathleen Wilson is a deeply observant historian whose examination of the Irish textile industry connects the fine details to stunning effect. With supreme intelligence and wit, she tells the riveting story of Irish linen, the elegant craft practiced by a proud people for centuries.
This is art history at its artistic best. The exceptional images in this book state the case for using photo documentation as an integral aspect of textile and costume preservation. Kathleen Curtis Wilson Author.
