Katia Concept Soft Lino is an exclusive hand-crafted multi-end 100% linen yarn made.
This thin yarn with delicate color transitions is perfect for knitting light summer garments with 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. Katia Concept Soft Lino's advantage 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 Concept Soft Lino is perfect for knitting shawls with defined lace stitches, thanks to its soft change of shades and linen's rigidity. Thanks to its long meterage, Soft Lino from Concept by Katia line is perfect for knitting or crochet shawls with just one skein.
With Soft Lino, you can also make cool summer tops with a cheerful change of colors with just one skein. Combine it with solid color skeins of Katia's Lino 100%, and you will be able to make unique and personal garments.
