Belfast is a DK weight linen blend yarn. Cotton, viscose, acrylic and silk are added to the blend for a beautiful rustic look. The muted colors will add a subtle heathery quality to your project. This is a great yarn to use for summer sweaters and tops. It also works well for home decorator use as well as any project that needs a strong, sturdy yarn. The linen continues to soften with time. Made in the U.S.A.
