About the yarn:
Lino is a good, simple linen.  The smooth finish and round twist makes this yarn a joy to work with.  As with all linen, it is important to remember that it softens considerably with wash and wear.  The subdued color range suggests summer tanks, market bags, and home décor.  This would also be an ideal weaving yarn!

100% Linen with approximately 164 yards per 50g that knits to 6.5 stitches per inch on a US 3 needle.

Machine wash cold, gentle cycle, lay flat to dry, do not bleach.
