Details

WHAT IS IT?

Dublin is a very strong, high quality, high twist pure linen yarn available in two different shades. It has a “best twist” as it is made from multiple ends of fine, smooth linen twisted together and then back on themselves. This is a very time-consuming production method, but creates an exceptionally strong, tough yarn and adds to the strength and appearance.

Also available on 100g cones

WHAT'S IT FOR?

As it’s so strong the cord is suitable for weaving in the warp, macrame and other heavy duty projects. It is the ideal warp yarn for tapestry looms, table and floor looms and tablet weaving looms. Excellent for knotting crafts and will create very tough braids and tassels. Dublin can be knitted and crocheted and would make very strong and robust bags, bowls, boxes, pouffes or floor cushions.

Makes a really useful all round string when a picture needs re-stringing or a strong string in the garden is required.

The cord can be dyed with cold water dyes to transform it to your own colourways. As the cord is quite dense it might not dye quite as quickly as other linen yarns as the pigment may struggle to penetrate through the twists, but should eventually give good results. The white will give brighter, fresher shades, whereas the natural will produce, more heathery shades.

WHY SHOULD I BUY IT?

The cord is regularly available, is a brilliant price (especially compared to other linens) and really versatile.
