This is a light, airy 2-ply yarn with a gentle silk sheen and a bit of linen “toothiness”. The yarn has a slightly rustic feel and there is the occasional slub in the spin. It has a soft, matte hand and lovely drape and lace will open up nicely with blocking, though it lacks any elasticity or memory. It would be lovely in a summer tank or tee, or a laceweight cardi (be sure to swatch for any fitted knits to account for the linen content). It would be stellar in a summer weight shawl!

Some colours may appear just a little heathered due to the dye not striking on the linen.

Be gentle when caking and please hand wash and air dry your garments.
