Tykk Line

TYKK LINE is 53% cotton, 33% viscose and 14% linen

With this mixture, the yarn gets the absorbent and soft properties of cotton and viscose, combined with the cool feeling of the linen. The gloss of the viscose together with the matte of the linen gives the yarn an exciting structure and surface.

We recommend that all hand-knitted garments be washed separately for gentle treatment. Dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel.
