A new yarn for this summer, Studio Linen by Erika Knight is a Double Knit yarn composed of 85% recycled rayon linen and 15% premium linen. The high percentage of recycled linen makes it super soft from the start but it will continue to get softer with wearing. It is available in a sophisticated colour palette of 8 shades, a collection of neutrals and chalky solids.
The yarn costs £6 per 50g skein which each contain approximately 120m/131yds. The recommended needle size is 3.75-4mm giving a tension of 21-22 stitches and 28-30 rows per 10cm.
There is great pattern support in the form of 9 ladies cardigans and tops. These are stunning designs making the most of the delicate drape of linen fabric. Many are beginner friendly with simple shaping and style letting the yarn do the work.
The patterns are priced at £4.50 each. The yarn cost per garment starts at just £24 for Positano in a size small or medium making them affordable luxury. My favourites are Siena, a t-shirt using different needle sized to add interest to the stocking stitch fabric and Palermo, a simple short sleeved cardigan.
We have limited stocks of Studio Linen available now. We are also able to preorder yarn for you for delivery at the end of July. Just let us know what you would like, we will order it and you can pay in installments or when the yarn is delivered.
Until the end of June we will have several sample garments from the collection on display. This is the perfect opportunity to see and feel the yarn for yourself. We have samples of Siena, Palermo and Positano which you are welcome to admire and try on.
