Yarn For your Robert Dress Shirt Kit choose between two remarkable 100% linen yarns.
Louet’s Euroflax – Sport - 100% Linen This elegant linen yarn achieves exceptional softness that is the result of fine splitting the long flax fibers and double boiling the yarn during production. The result is a strong, easy-to-care-for yarn that grows softer each time you wash it. It is non-allergenic and can absorb 20% of its weight in water without feeling damp. The pectins in the fiber give it a heat-regulating quality. Machine washable and dryable.
Lana Grossa’s Solo Lino – Sport - 80% Recycled Linen, 20% Linen This yarn is almost unbelievable. There is none of the stiffness that can be experienced when knitting with virgin linen yarn. Instead, the recycled process results in a beautiful drape that feels soft in your hands. Yet it retains all the qualities that make linen so desirable. Create a sweater that you’ll surely love.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
