Crisp and smooth, not only was this 100% linen lace yarn a delight to work with
the fine-gauge and natural firmness of linen gave this yarn extra memory and structure. It made shaping the finished Annis in the van a real breeze
…dried and ready to wear by the time I reached the destination 😀
Ideal for cool summer, the naturally-dyed 2-ply lace is quite easily one of the best linen yarns I’ve ever seen. The yarn memory so you can shape the finished knit or crocheted fabric.
The beautiful 2-ply linen yarn isn’t shown on Knit-Purl’s website. You may have to give the store a call to see if it’s in stock or when it’s available. When I made the trip to Portland earlier today on a lark,
I was sidetracked over West Hills
then irritated to be caught in Friday afternoon commuter traffic/accident on the freeway, and missed the shop by literally minutes! I have completely forgotten about Friday afternoon communter traffic I was such a goofball and had no clue it closes at 6 p.m., not 8 p.m., on Friday night. Oh well…the gorgeous shop sample will have to be mailed in instead…meanwhile, I’m squealed with delight to wear it around town for the weekend 😀 Sorry, Sandy!
Perhaps the universe is sending me a very clear message for summer knits…besides abundance of Noro Taiyo Sock Yarns already acquired in my stash, I would love to give Habu’s Linen Paper Cotton and Silk Stainless Steel (another lace-weight yarn that has a stainless steel core) a try using Gudrun Johnson’s Moch Cardi, one of many amazing designs off of The Shetland Trader (available for purchase at Knit-Purl.)
So whatcha planned for the summer? Interested in a Knit-Along?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
