For centuries, flax has been the fiber of choice for warmer-weather garments & accessories with superb breathability. Louet's "Euroflax Sport" yarn is spun from 100% linen flax, which makes it one of the few yarns that actually softens and improves durability with machine wash and wear. The mill where "Euroflax" is manufactured is capable of very high-quality, fine yarn production so that "Euroflax" is double-boiled and steamed for maximum softness. Also items knitted & crocheted from "Euroflax Sport" will continue to look like new in years to come and are great for just rolling up & throwing into a suitcase since they so rarely wrinkle. Beautifully crafted in Belgium of wet spun linen.
