Newport 16/2 Linen Yarn description:

Halcyon Yarn's Signature Newport Linen is an outstandingly high quality 100% linen yarn. Our signature Newport Linen is a perfect balance of earthy and enduring, yet refined and modern; everything a linen should be. Halcyon's Newport Linen is a classic and versatile weaving yarn. Linen yarn is very durable and softens beautifully with wear, it’s also surprisingly absorbent for use in towels or other linens. The long continuous flax fibers create a satiny-smooth finish with a subtle glow. The Newport Linen flax line is spun dry rather than wet spun to retain the natural, fibery look of linen. Newport Linen is a Halcyon Yarn exclusive, spun and dyed to our exact specifications. This versatile fiber is equally perfect for heirloom linens and contemporary textile designs. Newport Linen is not often used in knitting, however the crisp texture can lend body and interest when used in combination or as an accent with other yarns. Newport Linen is an excellent choice for woven drapery, table linens, and yardage for clothing or upholstery.

Newport Linen is available in economical 1 pound cones or in convenient 300 yard mini cones.

Newport Linen care:

The color line of Halcyon’s Signature Newport Linen (item #178) and Block Island Blend (item #099) mirrors that of our Casco Bay Cottons (items #096, #097 & #098), making these yarns perfectly compatible. Mix and match these great yarns in your favorite projects. As always, we recommend sampling before you start your project to determine gauge or sett, and to ensure colorfastness especially when using contrasting colors. It is not uncommon for excess dye to be present in strong colors. If bleeding occurs, loosely skein the yarn, wash until the water runs clear and let it hang dry.

Wash finished pieces gently in cold water by hand or machine using mild detergent. Can be tumbled dry, pressing damp will help linen maintain its crisp and elegant finish.
