Perfect for any and all breezy summer projects. Linen creates durable and lightweight summer fabrics that improve with each washing.
Linen fibre creates beautiful rich, vibrant colours.
Composed of ten strands of well-twisted combed linen, Antigone has a smooth, silky and deliciously fresh feel. This yarn can be knitted with fine needles for a regular result or in a loose fit to take advantage of its natural drape, which allows it to be adapted to a large number of pattern. It will be perfect for knitting mid-season jumpers and little tops for the warm weather, a lace cardigan to go with a pretty dress or even crocheting a shopping bag!
This yarn is made from flax grown in Normandy by the Terre de lin cooperative as part of a project to return to ancient cultivation practices aimed at preserving the soil and producing high quality fibres without chemical inputs. These long fibres are wet-spun in Lithuania with great care to create a regular, soft and naturally shiny yarn. The yarn is then twisted and dyed in France in the Creuse region.
