This is such a lovely yarn. It has a high silk content, so its drape is soft rather than crisp. The linen has longish random bast fibres that give the finished product a unique appearance. When dyed with acid dyes, the linen "tints" rather than being dyed, so the result is a lovely, heathered colour. Also available Undyed.
