Summer linens

I was looking for some quality summer yarn for my summer crochet projects and I was happy to find this gorgeous Lithuanian linen yarn at YarnStories shop on Etsy.
I started with purchase of natural unbleached yarn first, just to see how the yarn will work for me. I spent a week working on this tote and I am very happy how this project turned out!
I purchased more yarn this time in numerous colors. It's thinner than the unbleached one but it's a pleasure to crochet with this also. I've decided to make a summer wrap, the kind you want on your shoulders at a nice ocean front restaurant. It's turning out so pretty!
Linen is one of the oldest fibers made by humans. It's made of flax plant and was always popular for the exceptional qualities in hot weather. It's lightweight, durable and moisture absorbent. It feels fresh and pleasant to the touch and will not give you a static shock. Linen was always expensive because it's labor intensive but it's definitely worth it.
I love the colors and variety of linen yarn at the Kate's YarnStories shop. When I've got my parcels with the new yarn I purchased I lined them on display at our living room for a week. Such happy colors!  
If you'd like to see more of Kate's yarn please visit her at YarnStories shop on Etsy. Her knit and crochet patterns can be also found on Ravelry so if you are ready for some colorful summer projects get some yarn and start working on your project!
