This is a lovely lightweight yarn that takes colours in soft, muted shades, with a smooth gradient. It combines the crisp feel of linen with the drape of alpaca and silk.

Like all linen, it feels a bit dubious when you first begin to work with it-- stiff and, because of the alpaca, a bit hairy. Once it’s blocked and worn for a day, it softens beautifully and drapes like a charm.
