Linen is making a comeback among knitters and crocheters, and El Linio from Schoppel Wolle is one of our favorites. Unlike other linen yarns, El Linio is a sportweight knitted tape - that means the yarn is more "broken-in" to start with and softer from the get-go. El Linio is shadow-dyed, which gives the seven solid colorways a depth of color unmatched by many other plant-based yarns. Our shop sample is After the Sun Goes Down by Joyce Garris, but it would be amazing in a summer t-shirt like MAiryLin by Astrid Schramm or even plain washcloths!
