Purl Soho’s light worsted/DK weight Flax Down Purl Soho’s light worsted/DK weight Flax Down comes from farm and field. A blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen, Flax Down is a very special single ply yarn, full of gentle charm and natural beauty. Made in Peru, it is and Fair Trade Certified and meets both the Responsible Wool and Alpaca Standards. We love that and that its undyed linen casts the entire palette in a soft, tweedy haze. A range of colors or just your favorite one alone, a sumptuous wrap or a cozy sweater, a simple knit or a granny square, whatever you decide, it will be gorgeous in Flax Down!
