Looking for a trio for a summery shawl with lots of drape and a neat linen "halo"?  This kit is for 3 skeins (no pattern).  Follow my progress on Instagram knitting a Linen Summer Shawl by Joji Locatelli.

If you'd like more contrast between the speckle and the lightest tonal, Cashmere Pearl, substitute Taupe or Steel for the Cashmere Pearl.

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!). Expect some "white" areas - a tweedy effect, that's the linen, which resists the dye.

Each skein:

90% Superwash Merino (21.5 micron)

10% Linen

Single Ply

Approximately 100 grams/360 meters

(3.5 oz/ 394 yards)

Recommended Needle Size 2.5 mm - 4mm

Gauge (Stockinette) 28 stitches x 35 rows over 10 cm/4 inches on 3.25 mm (US 3) Needles

Hand Dyed in Texas in Small Batches

Hand wash in cold and lay flat to dry for best color retention.  Dyes may run on initial washing.
