If you are looking for a fibre to make a spring or summer knit garment you can do no better then linen. Like all plant fibres, linen breaths, so it is perfect for warmer weather. It has a crispness in the skein but with knitting and washing it becomes soft enough to wear right against the skin.
Sparrow by Quince and Co is a gorgeous linen! It has a sweet sheen and knits up into a lovely fabric with elegant drape. This fingering weight yarn comes with excellent pattern support. Check out Quince and Co's wonderful array of patterns for sweaters and shawls and other goodies HERE. While you are there you may notice Sparrow has a big sister yarn too. The Knit Café also carries the worsted weight linen by Quince and Co called Kestrel. Read all about it HERE.
