Soft Linen is the perfect yarn for warmer days and soft, cool nights. The alpaca makes a beautiful halo, the linen gives it a crisp and firm hand and the wool provides stability and its own level of softness. This year-round yarn works equally well for lace, colorwork and textures.
Also in Soft Linen, Gadina designed by Tian Foley, is covered in columns of eyelets. From the Sail Away pattern collection, you can download the pattern here.
