"Malabrigo works its magic with this single-ply, sport weight yarn. The blend of silk, flax and merino produces a light, drapey fabric that's perfect for our climate."

This breezy yarn is soft and light, making it the definitive summer yarn. Linen takes on dye differently than silk and merino do, resulting in an amazing depth of color that gives the yarn an almost metallic sheen. For some, linen can be hard on the hands because it doesn’t have much stretch, but this is a feature which Merino has in spades which creates a marvelous balance!
