Antigone linen yarn brings a smooth, silky sheen and luxurious drape that is perfect for creating timeless garments and accessories. The flax is ecologically grown and carefully spun with 10 strands of linen for maximum softness and durability.
This yarn is made from flax grown in Normandy by the Terre de lin cooperative as part of a project to return to ancient cultivation practices aimed at preserving the soil and producing high quality fibres without chemical inputs. These long fibres are wet-spun in Lithuania with great care to create a regular, soft and naturally shiny yarn. The yarn is then twisted and dyed in France in the Creuse region.
