Antigone is a 100% Organic French linen yarn in a sport weight. Here is what they say about the yarn.....Composed of ten strands of combed flax well twisted, its hand is smooth, silky and deliciously fresh. It can be knitted with fine needles for a regular result or with larger needles to take advantage of its natural drape which allows it to adapt to a large number of patterns. It will be perfect for knitting summer layette, mid-season sweaters and little tops for sunny days, a little lace cardigan to go with a pretty dress or even pick up a shopping bag! Particularly resistant, linen likes to be washed and worn; it will become more and more soft over time and you can enjoy your favourite sweater many seasons.This yarn has been spun in Italy from flax grown in France respecting the standards of organic farming. It has been then twisted, dyed, put in balls and tagged in France in Creuse. Antigone has been named after "the one who says no" in the plays of Jean Anouilh. It is advisable to wash your knitting in the machine, on a delicate cycle, and dry it flat.
