We understand why Linen Quill is one of our most popular yarns… We love it, too! A hearty blend in over fifty gorgeous colors, Linen Quill’s complexity and beauty make for a uniquely satisfying knit.

  • Made in Peru and inspired by the traditional yarns of the Andean highlands, Linen Quill’s springiness and durability come from its fine highland wool content, while alpaca adds lovely long-fiber softness.
  • And the linen… Only 15% of the content but critical to what makes this yarn so special! Its tendency to sprout out of the fiber lends a slightly rustic texture, while the way linen takes dye differently than animal fibers gives the yarn a beautiful depth and fascination (zoom in on Dark Iris for a good view of this!).

Have a wildly creative time with Linen Quill’s vast palette, inspired by nature itself with a bit of earth, air, fire, and water, and use this wonderfully appealing yarn for garments, blankets, accessories, sweaters, and wherever and whenever you crave nature’s beauty!

Linen Quill is Fair Trade Certified, which means the mill that makes it is committed to fair and safe working conditions, as well as a respect for the environment, with low-impact production techniques, a responsible consumption of resources, and the reuse, recycling, and reduction of raw materials. It also adheres to European regulations that protect human health and the environment from harmful chemicals.
