ISAGER BOMULIN is a fine 'summer yarn' with a blend of 50% cotton and 50% linen. The yarn is light and beautiful and very well suited for children's garments or light summer blouses. When knitted together with other yarns it adds a beautiful structure. We often use Bomulin together with other of our summer yarns in models such as PALET, SMOOTHIE and MUSIC, but it works equally well together with woollen yarns.
Due to this yarn's high linen content it is not suited for working in the round as the finished garment will twist.

Wool should be washed by hand unless you have a washing machine that uses lukewarm water (below 28° Celsius) and has a very gentle wool cycle.
To avoid felting, please observe the following:
Use very little soap and use a wool mark approved detergent. Be careful to keep the same temperature during the entire washing and rinsing process (not above 28° Celsius). After washing and rinsing place the garment in a washing bag and spin it lightly in a washing machine. Then place the garment flat on towel and leave to dry.
Woolen garments do not necessarily need washing very often. Airing outside in damp weather will often be sufficient. Yarns from cotton and yarns made from mixed fibres containing flax and bamboo could be washed in warm water, but still we recommend the same washing instructions as for wool.
