40/2 Linen Yarn

Have we told you how much we love weaving with our 40/2 linen?

Unfortunately, due to the rising cost of producing this fabulous yarn, the price per cone will increase on April 12th. However … you can still purchase cones and/or your favourite kits using our 40/2 linen at today’s prices until then! Stock up at the current price while you can…

Our 40/2 wet spun line linen comes in 100 g cones – 1,540 yds/cone (7,000 yds/lb). We currently carry a rainbow of 24 colours of this supple linen, perfect for your elegant scarves, wraps, and more! You can create a stunning scarf or wrap using the 40/2 linen and choose one or more of JST’s 30/2 hand dyed silks as the weft. This linen would also weave up beautifully using 40/2 linen for warp and weft to create light, breezy lace curtains for a kitchen or a bathroom…

JST Hand Dyed Silk Collection

All of our silks are hand dyed right here on site in the JST’s dye studio.
