Linen is the ultimate fiber for hot weather. As we move into the dog days of summer, even those of us who run a little cold are looking for cool comfortable linen garments to stave off the heat. In this climate, linen is not just the answer to our brutal late summer weather, but a smart fiber that's lovely to wear year round.
Lightweight and lustrous, Reed is a linen you'll actually enjoy knitting. Rather than being a traditional plied yarn, Reed is a fine chainette that creates suppleness and loft in a fiber that lacks both. This light sport/fingering weight yarn takes advantage of linen's crispness but tempers it into a lovely smooth fiber that has totally seduced me. Reed, you are my kind of fiber.
