This stunning yarn combines white linen, cultivated in France, with richly dyed Lambswool from the Swabian Alps, providing a spectacular visual texture. Virgin wool contributes bounce, wearability, and structure, and the strong, breathable linen fibers will soften with wear, being the perfect yarn for a long-lived sweater or accessory. We love it for the Churchmouse Easy Folded Poncho! As seen in our (Pod)cast On! Episode 6, Barb used 2 balls for the main colour and one ball for the stripes.
