This breezy yarn is soft and light, making it the definitive summer yarn. Linen takes on dye differently than silk and merino, resulting in an amazing depth of color that gives the yarn an almost metallic sheen.
For some, linen can be hard on the hands because it doesn’t have much stretch. Fortunately, this is a feature merino has in spades and creates a marvelous balance.
