For those not used to knitting with linen, it may appear stiff and stringy at first, but it softens in your hands as you work with it and will continue to soften for the many years that you wear it. Fantastically hard wearing, once blocked it also holds lace patterns beautifully without curling back up on itself and drapes very well.
Also works very well held double for more substantial knits – approximately DK weight , 4mm needles.
