Linen drape is the new summer yarn from Stylecraft which blends cool linen with viscose to make a yarn that drapes beautifully and makes the perfect summer evening layer. Pattern support is good in the shape of 8 ladies' patterns, both for outer layers and summer tops.
I've started knitting myself a 3/4 sleeve cardigan for the summer evenings when it's a bit cooler (and let's face it, many of the days too!) and I am loving this yarn! I've chosen the Cranberry colourway which is a deep red, but still has a brightness to it (if a deep dark red is more your thing, check out the Sangria colour, which is very much like a good wine!). It's great to work with, has a lovely weight to it (coming from the linen is my guess) but still feels light and cool in the knitted fabric (due to the viscose). I can already see I'm going to love this cardigan when it's made!
