Soft Linen
Soft Linen
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. This makes it a particularly good choice for accessories that will get a lot of use, like hats, belts, shawls, scarves and mitts.
