Blackbird Linen

Save to My Favorites

Like the wing of a blackbird catching the early morning light, Blackbird Linen shines with an understated elegance that belies its hard-working character. Earthy and easy going, Blackbird Linen is six loosely spun plies of 100% French linen. With a sustainable growing process that has been perfected over generations, French linen is the highest quality available. It is also hypoallergenic, long-lasting, and easy to care for, with a wonderful way of softening with wash and wear. With its ability to absorb moisture and dry quickly, Blackbird Linen has a cool touch that makes it the perfect choice for warm-weather knitting... Think durable bags and totes, beautiful three-season sweaters, and heirloom housewares! Its light worsted (DK) weight is a bit thicker than our Field Linen, and its spin is slightly more rustic. Choose from a similar range of rich and expressive colors, all totally beautiful! NOTE: If using dark, saturated colors with lighter colors, we recommend taking the precaution of soaking the dark colors first in a vinegar and cold water bath to remove excess dye.
