A lovely offering from Louet, this is KidLin, a yarn combining 49% linen, 35% kid mohair and 16% nylon. There are 250 yards per 50 gram skein and works up as a lace weight yarn.
As the mohair and the linen take the dyes slightly differently there is a subtle striation -- stronger in some colorways than others -- that simply is beautiful. Reminds me of Rapunzel's long hair.
Nice nice nice nice!
And with it, we offer a striking scarf pattern, called Myra and designed by Trudy Van Stralen of Louet which requires only one skein of this stunning yarn. The scarf is joined into a circle at finishing and can be worn long or doubled. It feels marvelous and looks amazing.
Great as a simple gift or for yourself, this is a great project for a quick knit. It is intended for advanced beginners or intermediate knitters but will keep even advanced knitters interested -- a great break from more complex designs.
The colorway that the scarf is shown in is called Mexican Orange. That is unfortunately backordered, but we do have some other really lovely hues that will look wonderful done in this pattern.
What we have on this web page is some great cool colorways -- all with very subtle color variations between the fibers:
• Violet (a royal purple)
• Spanish Blue (a true blue)
• Smokey Grape (a soft greyed grape with distinct differences between the fibers, the linen having more purple to it and the mohair being much more of the grey smoke colorway)
Choose your colorway from the drop-down menu. We think you'll love any of these. And should you decide you have another plan for the yarn, we are including a drop-down menu that allows you to get the yarn without the pattern. Just make sure both are set as you would like before you check out.
