LOVE this yarn! Natural fiber such as linen takes a bit of learning to knit because it doesn’t have the stretch or “give” you experience with acrylics or wool and wool blends. That being said, it’s a dream to knit summer tops, beautiful washcloths, summer shawls and scarves!! The stitch definition is superb and elevates any knitting project. Washes like a dream and softens; so if you find it’s a tad more stiff when knitting...Have no fear! It softens beautifully after each and every washing with warm water.
I am really enjoying working with Good Earth cotton/linen yarn. I’m presently working on a ladies crochet dress. The yarn is easy and comfortable to work. The stitch definition and drape are beautiful. I’m using the color creek bed and it is absolutely a gorgeous color. Very pleased with my purchase of Good Earth. Also, Premier yarns shipped so quickly, and my order arrived faster than I expected despite our strange “coronavirus times”.
I have nit used it yet but love the colors i chose an it feils stiff an cinnamon stitches sead it will sofen up when washed
I love this yarn: the colors are great, it is a nice weight and has different features depending on needle size, and shows stitch definition beautifully if you are using any particular design/pattern. I’ve made several items like shawls, summer tops & vests, shawls. This was a bonus getting more on sale. Thinking of buying more before it is all gone.
