Erika Knight Studio Linen is a perfect summer yarn: cool to the touch and with a delicate drape. It has great stitch definition and comes in eight subtle shades that will work with everything you wear.
Linen is an ancient, sustainable, natural fibre spun from the flax plant. Flax is naturally resistant to pests so practically no pesticides or herbicides are needed to grow these eco-friendly stem fibre plants. Flax plants produce large amounts of usable fibre per acre and do not require irrigation.
Linen is durable, soft, lustrous and flexible and will naturally soften with washing and wearing.
Studio Linen is made from 100% linen: 85% is recycled rayon-linen fibre, sorted from selected wastage and regenerated using the eco-friendly hydrolysis method. Blended with 15% premium natural linen, these fibres are twisted and dyed by a specialist Italian spinner in Biellato produce a unique yarn with a dry hand feel and subtle sheen.
