Linen

Linen, hemp and flax yarns offer you all of the benefits of cotton—cool, lightweight, and great stitch structure— with added durability, fantastic drape and subtle sheens that should make these fibers a go-to selection for warm weather tops and accessories. Like cotton, these fibers lack elasticity on their own, so if you’re making something with a rib or that needs to stretch, be sure to consider a linen/hemp/flax fiber blend for best results.
