Merino Linen Fingering Weight

This yarn combines merino and linen in a SINGLE ply for exquisite drape and texture.  The linen varies in thickness and resists the dye, producing a linen "halo," perfect for transitional seasons (or every season here in Texas!).  This is an elegant, but "rustic" yarn.   Expect some "white" areas - a tweedy effect, that's the linen, which resists the dye.  It can sometimes be a little "sticky" so be slow when caking it up.  

Dyed to Order takes 7-14 days to ship.  If it will be longer, you will be notified with the option to cancel your order.
