Inspired by the traditional yarns of the Andean highlands, Linen Quill is a fingering weight blend of fine wool, alpaca, and linen. It is windswept and elegant, hearty and beautiful. Like the fiber itself, Linen Quill's palette comes from a wild and rugged environment, tapping into earth, air, fire, and water; forest, desert, ocean, and sky. Use this very special yarn for knitting, crocheting, and weaving; use it for garments, blankets, accessories, and housewares; use it alone or in contrast with other yarns; use it wherever and whenever you crave nature's raw beauty!
Please Note: Saturated colors may bleed during blocking, so if you're knitting them with lighter colors, we recommend testing a swatch first. If there's bleeding, consider fixing the dye before you begin. Click here for our tutorial on re-fixing dye!
