Tina Tape Yarn | Wool & The Gang
- HOW IT'S MADE
- PROJECT IDEAS
This tape yarn is soft like silk, breezy like linen, and made entirely from eucalyptus tree fiber! And don't let the tape texture throw you off - this ribbon-like yarn has a similar look to linen once knitted up, but with extra sheen and extra drape. Tina is also very cooling on the skin, making it a perfect choice for your summer knitting projects.

Tina Tape Yarn is made entirely from fast-growing, regenerative eucalyptus tree fibers. The closed loop production process by Lenzing fibres uses 100% renewable energy, and uses 80% less water than cotton. As with all WATG yarns, Tina uses non-toxic solvents, and only Oeko-Tex certified and Reach compliant chemicals.
This is hands-down a summer yarn. It'll not only be cooling to knit, but cooling to wear. We think Tina best suits drapey tanks, tees, shorts, and skirts. It would also be super cute as a headscarf for the beach, or a tote bag for the produce markets!
