Linen Knits

These 100% linen knits have been a hit at the store lately.  They have a beautiful drape, somehow soft and crisp at the same time, with a cool feel in the hand.   The slightly slubby texture adds visual interest to an otherwise plain knit.

This fabric does shrink when machine washed, and we've also heard that the finished garment can grow slightly, so use slightly less ease than you normally prefer.  But this fabric works up beautifully, into comfortable, easy-to-wear garments just right for summer.  This simple boat-neck tee made by Mary is a perfect example.
