Antigone is de rerum natura's first vegetable yarn.
Composed of ten strands of combed flax well twisted, its hand is smooth, silky and deliciously fresh.
It can be knitted with fine needles for a regular result or with larger needles to take advantage of its natural drape which allows it to adapt to a large number of patterns.
It will be perfect for knitting summer layette, mid-season sweaters and little tops for sunny days, a little lace cardigan to go with a pretty dress or even pick up a shopping bag!
Particularly resistant, linen likes to be washed and worn; it will become more and more soft over time and you can enjoy your favorite sweater many seasons.
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.
Antigone has been named after “the one who says no” to the plays of Jean Anouilh. It is advisable to wash your knitting machine, delicate cycle, and dry it flat to avoid it deforms.
