Cotton Linen Slub DK 100g

  This DK yarn is a very unique texture combining the pillow softness of cotton with the strength and colour of linen. Unlike many linen yarns it is soft enough to wear against the skin and great for knitting and weaving. I offer this yarn both undyed or hand dyed in one of my Back to Basics semi solid colours. 


     Each 100g skein is 250m and can be used as DK or 4ply fingering.


     My semi-solid collection of colours show off the beautiful texture and slight colour variations of this yarn.
