Antigone is our 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 has been spun in Poland from flax grown in France respecting the standards of organic farming. It has been then twisted and dyed in France. 

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.
