From Habu Textiles: “This is a ‘paper’ yarn made from 100% linen. It has a very thin coating of a viscose sizing, so it feels crisp. The sizing is permanent, though it will soften with use. Great yarn to weave with as warp or weft. (Be careful as a warp yarn!) Great as knitting yarn for jackets, etc. The yarn does work on a knitting machine if you set it correctly.”

Yardage was 280yd at one time but is now listed as 476yd/1.7oz on the Habu website.

Suggested epi for weaving: 5-7.
Suggested needle size for knitting: US 3-5.
