Lino 100% by Katia is a natural linen yarn ideal for the summer. With Lino 100%, you can knit light garments in bright colors and a luxurious feel of coolness.
Linen is a yarn made from the fibers of the flax plant. Linen is very resistant, absorbent, and dries faster than other vegetable fibers like cotton. Linen is also the natural fiber with the highest breathability. For this reason, linen is an ideal yarn for knitting cool and light summer garments.
Coarse and dry in appearance, once woven and blocked, the linen is actually very soft and has a nice drape. However, it should be noted that linen does not have the elasticity of wool or cotton ductility. Don't be put off by the appearance of your stitches while knitting with linen: once your piece is blocked, they will seat properly, and your pieces will have a wonderful drape.
Linen has a bad reputation for being a fabric that wrinkles just by looking at it. The advantage of Katia Lino 100% is that you will use it to knit, so you don't have to worry about marked wrinkles that will be difficult to iron.
Katia Lino 100% is ideal for knitting lace t-shirts, summer cardigans, and spring/fall vests, both for men and women. Due to linen high resistance, these skeins are also wonderful to make hats and bags, even home decor like cushions.
Lino 100% by Katia skeins outstand for their bright and elegant colors, that will cheer the hottest days of summer.
To knit a long-sleeved cardigan in size L, you will need 6 skeins of Lino 100% by Katia. To make a crochet hat, count with 3 skeins. Remember that your own tension, chosen stitch, and kind of pattern may modify this calculation: make a tension swatch to calculate the actual skeins for your project.
