Pascuali Yarns Nepal
I love linen, it is a beautiful fibre. The feel of the finished fabric it creates is wonderful. Pascuali have developed a stunning linen based yarn, which blends organic cotton and nettle fibre. The blend allows for a sturdy and soft fabric, suitable for a variety of projects.
The organic cotton for this yarn comes from India and the linen and nettle come from Nepal. The fibres are spun and dyed in Italy.
Nepal has excellent wearing properties: cotton makes it breathable, the linen content gives the yarn a pleasant feel and the nettle fibre ensures a nice soft feel and a delicate sheen. This makes Nepal the perfect basis for airy tops, but it is warm enough to be a nice all-year-round yarn.
I am really looking forward to getting this yarn on my needles.
