Linen Yarn - Nel 25/2 (Ne 9/2) - 227g Spool | Maurice Brassard

French Linen - Quality Weaving Yarn

This French 2-ply linen weaving yarn from Maurice Brassard is soft yet strong, and easy to weave. This linen yarn has been spun and dyed in Quebec and is available in 14 rich colours.

This yarn is perfect for weaving beautiful table linens, but it's also very comfortable to wear! As linen is made from flax which is a bast fibre, the finished fabric can feel a little stiff straight off the loom but with a wash and press, it will transform and get softer.

This 9/2 linen is great for weaving, basketry and laceweight knitting.
