Maiwa developed this linen yarn in order to show the natural beauty of flax. It's grown in Belgium, spun in Bengal, and dyed in-house by Maiwa using only natural dyes and no harsh chemicals or fixatives.
This linen would look absolutely gorgeous as a breezy summer tank top, but you could also knit it on larger needles to create a super strong mesh bag! Linen is one of those fibers that begs to be knit in warm weather, so summertime garments and accessories are definitely the way to go here.
