A living and innovative fibre, flax is reinvented as linen knits and wovens by the industryâ€™s spinners, weavers and knitters.
A versatile and collaborative fibre, flax inspires fresh and unusual combinations that include cashmere, elasthane, lurex, and other materials. A thermoregulating fibre, flax is also said to provide the luxury of gentle warmth and comfort.
A capsule collection of eight knitted hats and scarves, from gauge 3 to 12, showed the versatility of 100% linen and linen blend yarns in varied counts Nm2/60 to 2,5 â€“ roving yarn, multi-ply twisted yarns, printed yarns, and more.
