What is linen yarn?

Linen yarn is a plant-based yarn spun out of the long, straight fibres of the flax plant. Linen fibre is highly regarded for its strength, inelasticity, and lustrous character, as well as its ability to produce cool, porous, and easily wrinkled garments. While it has less elasticity than cotton, linen does offer superior strength. Fabrics made with linen yarn can be machine-washed, tumble-dried, hand-washed, or dry-cleaned.

Linen weaving yarns and linen knitting yarns are known to be easy to dye, resistant to pilling and static, antibacterial, and eco-friendly due to their renewable source and biodegradability. 

Linen is a great choice for warm-weather garments, such as summer tops, wraps, and more due to its lightweight and crisp stitch definition. It is also often used in warps that require high tension and very little stretch. When you first use a bast linen fibre or yarn, it can feel rigid but with use and heat the fibres break in making the fibre comfortable, breathable and long-lasting yarn.

Find The Perfect Linen Yarn For Your Project

We have a selection of yarns available. From 100% linen yarn, and linen knitting yarn to our blends of linen silk yarn and cotton-linen yarn. Our yarns can be used across a variety of different projects.

If you’re working on a fine linen project our wet-spun linen yarns will be the ideal choice. Or if you are looking for something more durable for a weaving, textile or basket project our raw organic linen yarn is a great option. All of our yarns are suitable for warp or weft. Our cotton and linen yarn blends are a great choice for tea towels, furnishing and similar projects.

Each of our coloured linen yarns offers a smooth, slightly glossy appearance making them perfect for crafting projects that stand out.

How do I choose the best linen yarn?

Choosing the best linen yarn for your weaving or knitting project can be overwhelming with so many options out there. Here are a few steps to help you decide which linen weaving yarn or linen knitting yarn is perfect for your project’s requirements:

  1. Determine the ply you need: Linen yarns can come in either single-ply and multiple-ply varieties. What does your project require? Having the correct yarn will heavily affect the outcome of your project.
  2. Consider the linen yarn weight: Linen yarn usually comes in various weights. Depending on your project and pattern, you may want to stick with slightly finer yarns.
  3. Choose your preferred linen yarn colour: Here at Thread Collective, you can choose from bleached linen yarns, dyed linen yarns, or even organic unbleached and undyed linen yarns.
  4. Check the yardage: Be sure to check the yardage per skein or cone before buying so that you are sure it is enough for your project. 
  5. Match the pattern and project: If you are working on a specific pattern for your project, you may need different types of yarn for it. For instance, if you are working on a lace design, you may want to choose a lace weight or lightweight yarn.
