Midwinter Yarns Lithuanian Linen

The heavy lace/light fingering weight of the yarn means it is extremely versatile – it will create a gorgeous summery shawl, a beautiful crocheted blanket or a lightweight shawl. Hold two strands together for a DK weight that will create a more dense fabric for warmer garments.
