One of the first fibers our ancestors every spun, linen is made from the inner stalk fibers of the flax plant. Fragments from 10,000 years ago still exist, so you can see it's extremely durable. It can be machine washed and dried flat. The yarn has been been wet spun, and double boiled to soften it and remove most of the natural starch in the fiber. It is still quite stiff, but the more linen is used and washed, the softer it becomes.


FAQs

Yarn Weights: There are many different charts with yarn weights in relation to “wraps per inch”, and gauge. For consistency, this is the chart that I am using to give you yarn size information: The yarn weights are determined by wraps per inch as follows: cobweb 30+ lace 24-30 fine fingering 20-24 fingering 16-20 fine sport 14-16 DK 12-14 I sell by the number of yards (and I always round down to the last increment of 5 when counting) My handspun yarns have had the twist set by wetting, and air dried with no weight to minimize bias memory.

Each skein of yarn is a handmade, one-of-a-kind creation, spun by myself. I use an Ashford Traditional wheel. These are not machine-made items, and if I wouldn’t personally want to knit or weave with it, you won’t find it in my store. Please remember that computer monitor displays are varied and colors may appear differently from one to another. I take my pictures in natural light to ensure as close a match to real life as possible. Also, I try to give you a description of the colors. My shop is in a are a smoke-free, pet-friendly household, there are two cats in my family, so it is possible that you might find an occasional cat hair in your wool. Keep this in mind if you have a serious allergy to animal hair.
