Lino is a lustrous, yet rustic, linen yarn. Use Lino for hand knitting, crochet, weaving  all kinds of garments and accessories. 

Lino is softer than most pure linen yarns. The more linen is used the softer and more beautiful it becomes. We have ten gorgeous colors in stock.

We had some ideas about what you could do with Lino for both knitters and crocheters. On the top left below, there's the Ballet Neck Tee , by Linda Skuja. The Tee is crocheted in short row wedges  that let you combine texture and colors.

Next on the right, is the Linho,  top by Joji Locatelli. Linho, is a fast knit, top-down, in the round stockinette with a single lace panel just to keep things interesting.

Finally, on the bottom left, most of us are becoming more conscious about using plastic disposables. Wouldn't it be great to have a couple of hand made market bags like the Ilene Bag, by Hannah Mason?


Give Lino a try for creating cool, comfy, wash and wear garments and accessories.
