THE ROSSALIN COLLECTION
60% LINEN 40% COTTON
Our Rossalin collection combines linen & cotton for a lightweight, strong and durable fiber with a natural twist. An original palette brought to you by Shepley Yarns.
Linen is a durable fiber from the flax plant, that becomes softer and stronger the more that it’s used. Vegan fabrics such as linen can absorb up to 20 percent of its weight in moisture before it feels damp. This fiber is three times stronger than cotton and second in strength to silk. In addition, it is non-allergenic, and requires considerably fewer pesticides and fertilizers than other crops and is both recyclable and biodegradable.
Our Linen-Cotton comprises a mix of cotton and linen which gives a softer texture compared to pure linen. The cotton softens the yarn, making it more absorbent. Additionally, it drapes well and cools the skin more than cotton alone. These responsibly sourced fibers can be traced from seed to cone.
