Louet Euroflax linen yarn is one of the few yarns that actually improve with machine washing over time! Linen yarn has been used since times of old for creating garments that are light, airy and well suited for warmer climates with its superb breath-ability. As with all flax and hemp yarns Euroflax linen yarn will soften and look even more beautiful with more washes. The factory where Euroflax Sport is spun has been in operation for several generations and they produce very high quality, fine yarn production including double-boiling the yarn to give a very soft and exceptional quality. They also steam process the yarn to ensure maximum softness. This fantastic sport linen yarn from Louet is unrivaled for price and quality. Euroflax sport is available in 100 gram skeins and 1/2 pound cones.
