I love this linen!

By Roben

from Still River, MA

About Me I Love Fine Yarns, I Love Rugs

Pros

  • Good Weight
  • Machine Washable
  • Soft

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Linen-wool Yardage
    • Overshot Tabby

    Comments about Valley Yarns 40/2 Linen:

    This linen is excellent for overshot. I also use it for toweling. Warping is not a problem, although I recommend warping carefully back to front without cutting the ends. I have also woven tabby yardage with log cabin threading, and absolutely LOVE the feel. Washing in the machine is a must with all linen, to get the end fabric soft.

        Comments about Valley Yarns 40/2 Linen:

        Not good for warping! *Lots* of slubs, joins, thin then thick spots. So many broken warp threads, even with good, even tension and high humidity. Will *not* be buying this again.

        Very slubby

        By Anonymous

        from Hibbing, MN

        Comments about Valley Yarns 40/2 Linen:

        This linen is slubby with everything from little bumps to downright fluffy bits. No knots so far but many irregularities. Swedish first quality it is not. Lustre is ok. I've used up two tubes of 40/2 half-bleached and the slubs are consistent throughout. Still, for the price, it is good everyday linen, and if you want an antique/vintage look, the slubs could be considered a design factorl. I'm currently weaving a very old Swedish lace pattern and the combo of slubs plus old draft is fine.
