Euroflax - Sport
Euroflax is a long line, wet-spun linen yarn.
It is called long line because the plant itself grows more than a yard tall. When standing in the field, it is a beautiful sight; bright blue flowers waving in the wind. All of LoftyFiber flax is grown (and processed) in Belgium, which touts a damp ocean climate and rich soil that grows the finest linen in the world.
The term wet-spun refers to the process of using heat, humidity, and water during the spinning process, which creates a smooth yarn; in contrast to the the dry spun process which produces a rougher, more uneven yarn.

This is the first time I have ordered from Oh, the Yarnage and I am 100% pleased with their products, their service and this wonderful yarn. I am unable to use synthetic and woolen fibers and was looking for plant based yarn. This yarn is absolutely beautiful, the colours are bright and true to the colours as shown on the website. I have not yet started my project but I know from the feel of it, it will make a beautiful baby blanket. I am looking forward to starting very soon.
This is my favorite yarn for so many patterns. it is excellent for lace, and makes a lovely drapey fabric in stockinette. It wears like iron and is firm and unyielding to knit with, but after washing becomes soft and flowy. Blocks beautifully. Colors are vivid and clear. The best summer yarn out there, in my opinion!
