This is the highest quality linen yarn which produces a supple and soft fabric with tons of "swish" and drape. Reed is a smooth 100% linen chainette that flows easily across the needles for graceful garments and accessories. Top, top quality!
A little crisp to begin with as other linen yarns, the natural plant fibres really soften up after hot blocking.
As noted by Hand Serial in their review:
Shibui's Reed has the perfect amount of sheen and a lovely hand - just enough drape without drooping, sagging, or the sad ‘worn’ look that sometimes happens to the best linen garments.
And as with other Shibui yarns, luxurious Reed is perfect on it's own or blended with other yarns.
