Linen is a bast fiber, which easily absorbs moisture and draws it along the length of the fiber. Marks & Kattens' Linen is a good choice for summer sweaters, beach coverups, or functional pieces like market bags. It has a firm, crisp feel on the hank, but it softens once it is washed. It is fairly inelastic, but this lets the garment hold its shape. The firm twist also means that it gives good definition to stitch patterns.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
