Linen is one of the noblest and most used materials in the history of mankind. We love it for its resistance, its incomparable drape but also its pretty way of patinating over time and which makes it always more beautiful. Its culture is more than mainly French unfortunately the transformation of this fiber has long been exported to China. At Natissea, we work with the last French linen mill which has relocated to Poland in recent years to survive against the competitiveness of Made in China. In 2022, it is relaunching a spinning mill in France and we are already working on the development of a 100% French linen yarn from seed to yarn.

Linaé yarn is made of 95% French linen and 5% cotton, which immediately gives it more flexibility in knitting. It has not undergone any chemical treatment and is tinted with GOTS certified pigments in the North of France. Just like hemp, which is a related plant, linen is full of the same natural properties: Hypo-allergenic, anti-UV, very absorbent, anti-bacterial but also thermo-regulating, it will insulate the body temperature from outside temperatures as those either hot or cold. 

Linaé yarn is suitable for any type of knit, sweater, top, Jacquard or lace. It will also define the patterns very well and will not need to be blocked with each wash. All knitting needles are suitable but for people who knit tightly, it is better to turn to metal needles. 

For the maintenance it is easy, the linen being very resistant it does not risk anything. It goes in the washing machine but can also be washed by soaking in a bath of soap for knitting. It dries quickly and does not necessarily need to be ironed.
