    Reynolds Soft Linen

    This unusual flax/acrylic blend just begs to be made into a comfy three-quarter sleeve tee shirt or spring sweater. The hand is incredibly soft and inviting, and the smooth ply will make your pattern stitches sit up and be noticed. In soft earth tones, Soft Linen could be the next yarn you love forever. Made in Romania.

      Knitting up nicely into a sleeveless top. Definitely does split at times, especially on those decreases. Most of my skeins weighed in at 60grams which was pretty neat. It's soft and I expect it will get more so with blocking. Good stitch definition. NOte that 415 is black, even though it looks blue in the picture and the color isn't labeled.

      Lesson learned...unless I KNOW what a yarn is like, I should not purchase it. I have hundreds of skeins of yarn that I like sitting in my "yarn room". I will probably be OK if I don't rush to purchase a yarn just because it looks like a great deal.

        Comments about Reynolds Soft Linen:

        So far, so good - I'm doing the Gemini top-down tee and this yarn is working very well (once I adjusted needles and size to get something that would fit me). Easy to work with, and the knitted fabric looks really nice.

        Service and delivery comments:

        As always, great service and shipping from Webs!

            I rarely buy the same yarn twice but I made an exception in this case. Has just the right amount of give and the sweater I made fits perfectly. Can't beat the price...finished product looks expensive. Great stitch definition

                        Nice to knit. The addition of acrylic to the linen gives it a bit more bounce and makes it less splitty.

                                  The color was more chartreuse than what I gathered from the picture. In the future I will check out the yarn on multiple sites just for color verification.
