Very unique paper yarn made from linen. For an additonal strength, a few strands of almost invisible raw silk is wrapped around it. It dyes beautifully. (raw silk will dye slightly differently from the linen paper) Works as a warp yarn for weavers. A knitted fabric from this yarn feels like cotton, but not! Very nice mixed with another yarn such as N-51 or N-52. The yarn is completely washable! Will not go naked in rain if you are worried about that... Yes. You can wear this yarn in Portland or Seattle :)
