Organic linen yarn NeL 16/2
The linen yarn is one of the oldest yarns ever produced and is cultivated from the flax plant. The plants are grown, harvested and spun without any chemicals used and is qualified as a GOTS approved yarn. This makes this linen yarn very special and one of the highest qualities available. This yarn is wet spun to give it a lovely smooth feel.
Linen has a beautiful natural ability to be durable, cool and breathable. The produced textiles last a lifetime. Linen can feel cool in summer and warm in winter. The yarn has a beautiful natural sheen, which is just wonderful to work with.
The linen 16/2 comes in 18 colours including natural, bleached and 1/2 bleached.
Weaving advice: Linen is not the easiest to work with. Dampen the yarn before weaving will make it stronger and easier to handle. Spray the yarn with water at the back of the loom or/and wrap the weft bobbins in a wet cloth before using.
