Midwinter Yarns Lithuanian Linen
A wet-spun linen from a mill in Lithuania dating back to the 1920s, this yarn is perfect for a variety of projects.
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.
If you are not used to knitting with linen, it may appear stiff and string-like at first, however it will soften beautifully in your hands as you knit and will continue to soften for the many years that you wear it.
This yarn is fantastically hard wearing, and, once blocked, it holds lace patterns beautifully with elegant drape.
