Are you ready for summer? Maybe you’re just ready to think about summer! We’ve got a lovely new yarn in stock that will have you dreaming of a warmer, safer world in no time.
Linello, from Lang Yarns, is a treat for anyone who loves the look and feel of linen, but maybe wishes it were a bit easier on the hands.
It is a blend of linen, cotton, and viscose that is light, soft, strong, breathable, easy to knit, and durable. Like all Lang Yarns, it is a high-quality preparation, with great consistency. And it comes in a terrific range of colourways, with long, striking colour runs.
Nina already has a summer scarf worked up in this yarn – you can see it in the project gallery. What will you make?
Nina test-drives every new yarn she brings in to the store, and this is the first thing she did with her order of Linello from Lang Yarns.
The scarf pattern is available from Lang, but it will look just as gorgeous with any simple eyelet lace repeat.
Nina loves linen yarns, and this is a particularly nice blend of linen, cotton, and viscose, The scarf is cool, breathable, and summery, and the yarn has a very nice hand. It’s easier to work with than pure linen, but retains all of the best characteristics of linen.
