Both linen and cotton yarn is strong, durable, and absorbent. They are an inelastic fiber and do not have the same memory as wool. This combination has a great stitch definition and creates a beautiful, drapey, fabric. It is machine washable and can be tumble-dried. It will get softer with use and makes for a great year-round fiber.

Machine wash cold on gentle cycle. Lay flat to dry. To lengthen the life of your projects, we recommend washing by hand.
Colors have depth and vibrance, dyed with professional acid dyes that won't bleed or fade. All hand dyed yarn is unique and no two skeins will be exactly alike. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).
We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
