WHAT IS IT?

Two strands of lustrous, hairy linen are twisted into this strong, versatile yarn. Packed full of texture in an even ric-rac style throughout the yarn, it's a very strong, but soft yarn. The nice bleached white or creamy colour means the yarns can all be dyed easily with cold water dyes into bright, fresh colours of your own choice.

WHAT'S IT FOR?

Linen is ideal for all different crafts requiring a strong, tough yarn. Though its handle is quite rough, it will soften with use and can tolerate machine washing and tumble drying.

Linen makes a particularly good weaving yarn in both the warp and weft for all types of loom. Make placemats, table linen, tea towels, cushion covers and bags.

Braids, tassels, knotting and macrame are very successful when made from linen as stitches can be seen clearly and linen has a nice drape and weight. Also useful as a general “string” around the house or garden, though will eventually discolour and rot over time with long exposure to the sun.

Excellent when crocheted into tough, strong bags and vessels that will last for years. Once made throw in the washing machine and tumble drier and it transforms into a soft, wearable yarn that is perfect for spring and summer pieces.
