Bockens 16/2 linen is a wet-spun and plied linen yarn. All the dyes used to produce the vibrant colors are eco-friendly so that do not bleed and are color fast. If you are new to utilizing 100% linen in your work, this is a fantastic size to get started with. It is strong, and very easy to weave with. This yarn has a nice weight for towels, tablecloths, runners and other table linens, and could also be combined with the 16/1 (single) to produce a finer/lighter linen product. The colors that are available in the 16/2 are also available in the singles (16/1) version of this yarn.
