Add the wow factor to your knitting!
Just arrived: Beautiful and affordable 100% Linen yarn from Marks & Katten in Sweden.
Linen is a luxurious yarn made from the fibers of the flax plant. It is very absorbent and garments made of linen are known for their exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.
Linen textiles are believed to be among the oldest in the world. Dyed flax fibers found in a prehistoric cave in Georgia suggest the use of woven linen fabrics from wild flax may date back about 36.000 years ago. Flax was first domesticated in ancient Mesopotamia, where linen was used by the wealthier class of the society, including priests.
This yarn has me drooling - it is quite a different fibre to wool, a bit more rigid yet smooth with a gorgeous sheen. The colours are just stunning. Ideal for summer garments or a cool summer shawl.
Perfect for those who love natural materials and appreciate the classical properties of flax. Available in bright colors and gentle tones - there is something for everyone. A great choice for summer!
