Available in rich velvety colors, use this dk weight yarn to knit summery tanks and tees as well as home accessories like washcloths or dish scubbers. Since linen is 3x more durable than cotton, it work beautifully for that type of project. Also, Flax is machine washable! It softens and blooms after each washing getting better with age.

I love the texture and feel of this yarn. Easy to knit!
Pleased indeed with this easy and fun material. Making spa cloths and enjoying the processes with this yarn, feel, colors, and luxury.
Read about using linen instead of cotton for wash cloths and dish clothes. Yes this is so much nicer!!!
My first linen purchase. It took me about 4 hours to wind up. Have not started project yet, so don't know if it was worth it.
I made a darling face cloth, with a ruffle..washed it and it became an inviting ruffle wash cloth..bravo
