A lovely yarn from Louet, this is KidLin, a blend of 49% linen, 35% kid mohair and 16% nylon -- the yarn has a thin strand of each. 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, that 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 a choice of three lovely greens -- a wonderful reflection of Mother Nature. Here they are as shown below:
• Grasshopper (a bright spring green; lovely yellow-green with little difference between the two fibers)
• Woodland (rich greens with distinct variations between the mohair and linen -- this is a most intriguing look)
• Island Moss (a rich mossy olive with great depth, having very subtle variations -- almost a solid)
Choose your colorway from the drop-down menu. We think you'll love any you choose here. 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.
