Sparrow is elegant in its simplicity. This beautiful 100% organic linen, made in Italy, has a clean, smooth hand that's crisp as you knit it. But after washing and wearing it becomes handkerchief soft. You can knit Sparrow on a variety of needle sizes depending on the drape and feel you want in your project. The yarn is a natural in lace patterns, carving out the yarn overs, but it’s fluid, too, in simple stockinette. It’s great in tanks, shawls, and breezy cardigans, and lovely as can be in bags, wash cloths, and other home accessories. Sparrow is spun in Italy from organic linen grown in Belgium.

The colours: Frond / Surf / Conch / Mineral / Mica are marled (two colours plied together).
