Feels like a straight cotton and linen blend.

I like the way the yarn knit when swatched in garter stitch. Soft and squishy. However, The 33% viscose component is just not noticeable as the yarn seems more like a cotton and linen blend. It is also more of a dark cream with yellow undertones (almost a light buttercream) than what I consider off-white. I will probably knit my garment, and then dye it. There is very little twist in the yarn and it has multiple plies making it a little splitty at first but I soon got used to it.

Belle is a great yarn

I love the softness of this yarn.I am knitting a lacey kimono shrug. It is easy to work with and has pretty good stitch definition. Also very well priced for this quality of yarn
