Description:
Our best selling MERLIN singles yarn in a 2 ply version. A soft merino and linen blend yarn with texture and a gentle tweedy haze. Nylon free.

The two plies in this yarn have a medium twist so that they naturally and gently twist away from each other to give a lively, textured look to the yarn when it is knitted up. Lace stitiches really pop as the plies open up the holes in the lace. A 2 ply yarn is also crisper than a singles yarn, and the resulting fabric is more structured. Ideal if you want a little more body in your finished item.

The natural linen gives the yarn a textured finish with subtle drape and produces a rustic, almost hand spun look when knitted up. When dyed with acid dyes, the linen resists the dye and remains white producing a pale halo of linen fibres.

It is ideal for jumpers, cowls and shawls.
