Yarn Review: Knit One Crochet Too Batiste

Weight: Sport
Fiber Content: 50% fine merino wool, 30% linen, 20% silk
Yardage/Weight: 208 yds/50 grams
Price: $12.00/hank (5.7 cents/yd) @ Yarn.com and $13.25/hank (6.4 cents/yd) @ Knit One, Crochet Too
Color Range: Available in 24 colorways, but not all colorways are available from all retailers
I used it for: a shawl




Pros: This is a lovely yarn to work with! It has beautiful stitch definition and is so soft to the touch. The linen gives it a nice drape. The wool/silk combo gives the yarn a very, very subtle heathered look that is quite pretty. It also blocks like a dream!



Things to Consider: I'm not sure I love how the linen is blended in. You can see in the photo that there are random strands of off-white - it gives the finished item a bit a of rustic look, which worked really well for the casual shawl I knit, but the hairy-looking texture is definitely something I would debate over on a different project.
