This is the first time I use 100% linen. Very happy. it drapes well and is easier to knit than cotton of the same weight. It is not DK though. I would not use needles bigger than size 6 (4 mm). It knits up very lacy, even garter stitch looks great!

I do like this yarn--the drape is nice after washing, it really gets soft. But there are knots in the skeins and I needed MUCH smaller needles than suggested (ended up using size 2 to prevent garment from being see-through). The swatch shrank by 1" after washing. All that said, it will make a lovely drapey summer tank top.

      I knit a shawl for warm weather wearing. One wash and dry and it has softened considerably. I'd use this yarn again.

      Good substitute for Euroflax Sport

      By Lynn from Idaho

      from Bonners Ferry, ID

      Comments about Fibra Natura Flax:

      I looove linen sweaters because the fabric is soft and drapy. I adore Euroflax, but it is very expensive, particularly when you are making something long out of it and need 2500 yards! I bought this yarn to see whether it might be an acceptable substitute. The answer is absolutely. It is a bit rough on the skein, more so than the Euroflax, so it feels sort of like knitting with twine. Once you wash it, though, it is heavenly-soft. It has thick/thin areas and fat joins, but so does Euroflax. I consider that a 'linen thing' and don't mind it. It is also splitty, but again, so is Euroflax. If you like the linen feel and can't afford Euroflax, this is the product I would recommend. In fact, I'm buying more in a different color to make a tunic for a friend.

      Comments about Fibra Natura Flax:

      Knit up beautifully into the Sister Bay shawl pattern. Yarn is as nice as other linen yarn that costs twice as much. Dyed multiple skeins for a friend that came out beautiful. Most hanks did have one, sometimes two knots which sadly seems to be the industry standard.

          What I like about this product is the weight. I live in Florida and seldom do I get to use heavier weight yarns.

            I bought this on sale, a melon color, one skein. It is worsted weight but I will find a use as weft in weaving as I am a slow weaver! The color is now sold out!

            I used this to knit a woman's summer sleeveless pullover with buttons down the front. Beautifully holds its shape and the colors are fresh -- I used medium blue for the body and white for the collar and button placket. Very happy with how it turned out.

                this is my first time with linen so i decided on this product as my intro. felt coarse after just working with a wool/microfiber mix for my last project so i am pleasantly surprised that it is so drapey now that i have 16" of my swing tank on the needles. love the color and can hardly wait to wash and block it. very happy with this yarn
