We’re excited to offer this new line of indigo dyed linen laceweight yarn!
When debating the put up Denise wanted enough yardage for a medium-sized shawl or scarf and settled on 500 yards / 457 meters and 115 grams.
All of the indigo dyed linen yarns have been dyed and rinsed (repeatedly) to diminish as much crocking/rub off as possible. (Denise is currently knitting a top with the Medium shade now and has experienced no crocking.) This yarn comes in three shades of indigo – Pale, Medium, and Deep Denim for those who might want to create an ombre effect.
Linen yarn is wet spun flax, and may seem a bit stiff if you haven’t worked with it before. With use the yarn becomes much softer. It is machine washable and dryable. Experience tells us that drying your swatch or garment with a pair of denim jeans further softens the knitting.
