Inspired by the traditional yarns of the Andean highlands, Linen Quill is a fingering weight blend of fine wool, alpaca, and linen. It is windswept and spare, natural and elegant, hearty and beautiful. Like the fiber itself, Linen Quill’s palette comes from the mountains, from an environment that is wild and rugged, with grasses and crags interrupted only by an occasional wildflower pushing through the stony ground. Use this very special yarn for knitting, crocheting, and weaving; use it for garments, blankets, accessories, and housewares; use it alone or in contrast with other yarns; use it wherever and whenever you crave nature’s raw beauty. Please Note: When using Turmeric Yellow with other colors, we advise you soak it first in a cold water and white vinegar bath. All colors should be blocked and hand washed in cold water.
