Louet Yarns began when founder Trudy Van Stralen began dyeing and spinning her own yarns to sell in her yarn shop. As Van Stralen grew as a fiber artist she incorporated spinning and weaving, developing a reputation for creating wonderful color ranges of spinning fibers and yarn. Today, Louet Yarns is dedicated to environmentally friendly policies and products while still providing high-quality fibers for crocheting, knitting, and weaving.
Our long line linen yarn is made out of flax-fiber, grown in the damp ocean climate and rich soil of Belgium (flax loves damp!). The fibers are then wet-spun exclusively for us, in a mill that has been in operation for generations. The combination of the unique growing environment and unmatched skill in spinning conspire to produce the finest linen yarn in the world. This high-quality, fine yarn production requires double-boiling the yarn to give us a very soft and exceptional quality, and also steam-processing the yarn to ensure maximum softness.
