Knitting with Linen
Linen is a strong, durable fiber from the flax plant. Around for thousands of years, this fiber is three times stronger than cotton and second in strength to silk. It's perfect for knitting spring and summer weight garments because of it's absorbancy and drape. The long linen fibers have a natural wax coating, providing a lovely sheen to completed projects.
