Lang Zeta is a premium quality, classic cottolin (cotolin, cotoline) yarn spun from the 70/30 cotton-linen blend. Zeta has a softness of a long staple cotton while having a 'linen' appearance. It is dyed in beautiful jaspé-effect, soft, slightly mottled hues of Grey, Natural, Bardo, Moss.
FYI Linen is one of the world's oldest fibers made from stalks of the flax plant. To improve crease resistance and washability, it is usually combined with other plant or artificial fibers. Because linen is less elastic and pliable than cotton, it is sometimes used in admixture with cotton to improve the quality of the spun yarn.
