Flax Down

Description
Purl Soho's light worsted Flax Down comes from farm and field. A blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen, Flax Down is a very special yarn, full of gentle charm and natural beauty. The linen is undyed, casting the entire palette in a soft, tweedy haze. This harmony makes Flax Down a wonderful choice for stripes or Fair Isle designs that flow from one color to the next. A rainbow of color or just your favorite one alone, a sumptuous wrap or a cozy sweater, a simple knit or a granny square, whatever you decide, it will be gorgeous in Flax Down! (P.S. If you notice that the gauge for Flax Down is slightly different than they used to be, don't worry the yarn has not changed! We've just refined our thinking a little...)
