About the yarn:
Lino is a good, simple linen.  The smooth finish and round twist makes this yarn a joy to work with.  As with all linen, it is important to remember that it softens considerably with wash and wear.  The subdued color range suggests summer tanks, market bags, and home d├ęcor.  This would also be an ideal weaving yarn!
