Our recent warm sunny weather and the purple crocuses popping up in the garden have us thinking of the bright colors of spring. We are eager to cast on some colorful projects in anticipation of the end of winter! Spring and summer knitting brings thoughts of light weight yarn options.Lovely linen is an excellent choice for warm-weather projects as it's a natural fiber that wicks away moisture and is quick drying. It actually helps keep you cool! Created from the flax plant, linen is an ancient fiber; fragments of linen clothing have been found in Switzerland that date back to 8,000 BC.While dreaming of long summer days to come, why not take advantage of our Shibui Linen 20% off sale?
