Sandnes Garn Tynn Line, or “Thin Linen” is a lovely combination of 53% cotton, 14% linen and 33% viscose. It has the drape and structure of linen, with the softness and work-ability of cotton. The fingering weight is perfect for fine garments, but also works well with looser styled shawls, or plied with other yarns.

If I was able to submit pictures I would. There is a lot of yarn in every skein, which will be necessary concidering the amount of knots and cut ends visable from the outside of the skeins. I have never had an allergic reaction to any of the fibers in this blend before, but I have been getting hives and have been having difficulty breathing everytime I try to pick up this yarn. It is generally low quality and disappointing and I don't see myself buying anything from Sandnes Garn again if this is the quality they put out. Biscotti yarns was lovely though, they processed my order quickly and hand checked that they had the right products.


Nice yarn

Sandnes Garn Yarn is dreamy

The Tynn Line yarn from Sandnes Garn makes a beautifully lightweight shawl for summer. It is particularly nice for those who cannot wear wool!

Tynn Line

Purchased this yarn for a Mystery Kal with Laura Nelkin, Love the yarn & how it is knitting up. Best to use wooden needles as it is slippery & can split but easily resolved. Will definitely be buying other colours

Separating threads

I love working with this yarn. It’s so soft. I just wish the threads wouldn’t separate so much. I will get more in the future I’m sure.
