Diane’s Corner: Zooey Yarn Review

Diane is no stranger to the wonders of linen blends.  Today she spotlights a new linen/cotton yarn from Juniper Moon Farm called Zooey.

Zooey is a 60% linen, 40% cotton DK weight blend with a slight thick and thin texture.  The quintessential summer yarn, Zooey is machine washable (yay!) and softens up beautifully with washing.

Zooey would be perfect for a summer tee such as Mari Chiba’s Garmi Top.  The Garmi Top is a great transition piece.  It can be worn alone in warmer weather or layered over a long sleeved tee through Fall.
