Shibui Knits Linen

Knitted 50 grams stockinette on Passap Automatic, SSs 3.5 / 4 / 4.5 to test which one I like best.
The yarn really feels crisp, no stretch. The knitting feels solid, not much drape, but I don’t think I would like a larger stitch size. Wiil measure the swatch, wash it and measure again.
Swatch not washed: 10 cm = 30 stitches, 10 cm = 40 rows
Washed: 10 cm = 32 stitches, 10 cm = 48 rows

Washed in wool programme, 30 degrees celsius, spinning at 700 air dried after ironing when still wet with low temperature.
After the laundry the swatch is a bit softer and flatter, still a little crisp left. No bias. Feels thinner than before and would so be acceptable for a summer top.
