This sport-weight line linen yarn is made out of flax-fiber, which is custom wet spun in Belgium where the finest linen in the world is sourced from nearby 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 including double-boiling the yarn to give us a very soft and exceptional quality. The yarn is also steam processed to ensure maximum softness.
These skeins (hanks) weigh 100 grams and have approximately 270 yards. This is a 4-ply yarn (14/4) and has 1300 yds/lb.
Washing instructions: Machine wash on gentle cycle using a mild soap, like Soak. 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.
