Caribou: Euroflax 14/4 Linen
Linen is strong and incredibly soft with wear. This is a great yarn to weave, knit, crochet, or stitch with!
This 4-ply line linen yarn is custom wet spun in Belgium from flax grown in Belgium and France. The factory where the yarn is spun has been in operation for several generations and they are capable of very high quality, fine yarn production. This yarn goes through a double-boiling process, which gives a very soft and exceptional quality. The yarn is also steam processed to ensure maximum softness.
Each cone is 8 ounces (225 grams) and approximately 650 yards (595 meters).
Washing instructions: Machine wash on gentle cycle using a mild soap. Dry for 15 minutes and lay flat, or for an even softer result, completely dry in the dryer. Items made with linen continue to soften with usage and washing.
