Traveling through the Baltic countries in the summer of 2019, Loret Karman discovered the vibrant production of linen in Lithuania in particular. The oldest linen spinning mill still operating in Europe is in Lithuania and has been in operation since 1929. The old farming, harvesting and spinning methods are kept alive, and with so many years of experience you can perhaps imagine what fantastic quality yarns this produces. Ragfine and very regularly spun thread with a luster as if it were silk. About 400 people currently work at this spinning mill. 

Each skein consists of 100 grams/600 meters of 100% linen, held together with a single knot. So be careful when winding. If you wash the linen in the washing machine it still gives off some color. You can reduce this release of color by adding a dash of vinegar to the wash the first time you wash the linen.
