This versatile yarn has 47% cotton, 27% Linen, and 26% acrylic is washable and works great for any summer project. The linen content adds great stitch definition but you won't have to wash this yarn over and over to get it to soften like a traditional linen yarn. This yarn is nice and soft right from the start. Each 50 gram ball has 148 yards. This is a DK weight yarn and the recommended needles are 3.5mm (US 4).
