After receiving the linen thread I had ordered (green, reddish brown and undyed), I was naturally eager to test it out and see how linen works as compared to wool. Personally I like the result very much! Linen is durable and strong enough to weave with thinner threads without breaking the threads from all the pushing and pulling from the cards. This of course gives the potential of thinner, more detailed weaving. The result is not so fat either, and hopefully easier to sew on to garments (untested yet).

All in all, exited to test out and I might just swap over to linen entirely unless an order specifically asks for something else. 🙂

This bond with the braid weave I just learned measures 2 cm in width and is 1.29 m long.
