Önling No 7 is a light, thin yarn in 100% linen
This is a light summer yarn in 100% linen. Use it for summer projects or as a companion thread, worked together with a strand of cotton or wool.
If you hold 2 strands of Önling No 7 together, you can for example replace Trio yarn from Isager.
Önling No 7 is available in many beautiful colors and is perfect as a companion thread in blouses, t-shirts, dresses and other light summer projects, due to the cooling effect of linen. It will add a bit of stability to loosely spun or very soft yarns and can regulere tour gauge a stitch or two.

We recommend that you wash No 7 by hand or on a gentle cycle in the washing machine. Only if you know your washing machine very well and trust that its gentle program is gentle enough, should you wash it in the washing machine. Dry your knitwear by laying it flat.
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
