Linen is a plant-based fiber made from flax. Linen is cool and drapey and lends itself to warm weather garments such as shawls, tops, dresses, and scarves. Linen fiber starts out stiff but softens over time with each wash and dry.
Linen can be washed and dried by machine. Using wooden needles while working with linen can help maintain smoother stitches and provide more grip, so stitches don't slip off the needles so easily.
