Linen is the fiber of choice for casual, comfortable summer knits. Linen is a bast fiber produced from the stems of the flax plant. Bast fibers have unmatched strength and durability, soften with every washing and wearing, and are naturally insulating and cool to wear in warm climates. Linen and linen blend yarns are perfect for flowing tees and tank tops, shawls and wraps, as well as numerous home decor projects like table linens or curtains. Linen is a completely renewable and sustainable fiber which has been used in textile production for thousands of years.
