This Irish linen handkerchief is white, and personalized with an exquisite tiny sweet pea blossom, perfect for a wedding or as a gift.

This hankie is made from 100% Irish handkerchief linen, for a crisp, cool texture that will only get better with use. Linen is stronger, absorbs more water, can withstand higher heat, and lasts longer than cotton, and the Irish weave the finest linen in the world. These handkerchiefs are hand-cut to a generous 13 inches and hemmed with a narrow rolled hem, for a personal touch that extends to the smallest details.

The embroidery, done in any color or shade you choose, consists of stem stitch and satin stitch artfully tapered to enhance the shape of each petal in gorgeous detail. Each is embroidered completely by hand - not machine - and, although it takes more skill and more time, the results are worth it. Please send a message with the colors you'd like your blossom, or leave a note in the 'Notes to Seller' box at checkout along with tiny initials, if you like. Incredibly, this sweet pea only measures an inch and a quarter from the tip of its stem to the top of the flower.

I love to have a personal relationship with each of my customers. Message me with any custom requests, specific color shades, or any other questions you have! I love to know where every handkerchief is going, whether to a new grandfather in Ontario, groomsmen in Italy, or for a sweetheart here at home!

Care information

Linen handkerchiefs may be washed via delicate cycle in a washing machine (no bleach) or for best results, by hand. Iron hot, with steam, on the backside of the work. Any stitches pushed out of place from the iron can gently be prodded back into place. A cotton or mesh laundry bag will help protect your piece from getting snagged.

Temari should not be washed, just dusted if necessary. If needed, you can wet a cloth in hot water and wring it out quite well, and use that to spot-wash. Temari are made of fibers all the way through, so a wash or soak would mean that the inside would never dry.

Our embroidered blankets are made with wool, and should be handwashed gently in cool water.

Goldwork embroidery should only be washed by a professional. Other embroidery is best cleaned as for temari (especially framed hoop work) though wearable accessories may be put through the wash on a gentle cycle or hand washed.
