Formed from the fibres of the flax plant, linen is one of the oldest yarns in existence. It’s at the heart of our biggest family of fabrics, with currently six types of linen blend in our portfolio.
Strength: linen is known for being robust if it’s harvested carefully and the fibres aren’t damaged. It makes it an excellent choice for high-traffic areas or for homes with children or pets.
Character: out of all of our yarns, linen is arguably the one with the most natural texture and variance, so much so that techniques have been developed to try to emulate linen’s slubs in other yarns, but never quite to the same effect. It’s all part of its natural character. The higher the percentage of linen in a blend, the more slubs. Without them, it wouldn’t be true linen.
Breathable: like with wool and cotton, being a natural fibre, linen is also breathable, making it an excellent all-year-long option.
