COLOR NOTE  Since Linen is a plant fiber, it takes dye differently than wool or silk (which suck it up like a milkshake!) Therefore a color will appear gentler and softer in Linen than it would in our other bases.

Don’t believe the stories you’ve heard about linen and other plant fiber yarns, they’re much nicer to work with than many folks think!

ModeFlax Lace in Ruby
ModeFlax Lace in Garnet

Our linen’s been conditioned and re-skeined several times, helping to tame the fibers and making them easier to knit & crochet.  You will LOVE this lovely, glistening, strong fiber!

And to top it all off, ModeFlax machine washes and dries wonderfully! Every time you wash it, it just gets softer and softer!

Excellent for baby and children’s garments, for intimate items and summer fashions, it also just happens to knit up into gorgeous millinery!
