Hi, Am making a cocoknits tunic. It calls for louet euroflax. To expensivend don't like the feel of it. The garment needs to flow and fall nicely. he pattern calls for linen. Any suggestions?

I'm a bit late here, but don't judge Euroflax linen by the feel of the hank! I have used it several times and, while it feels as though I'm knitting with dried grass, once put through the washer and dryer, it makes an absolutely MAGIC transformation that just keeps on getting better. I, too, was hesitant about it, but trusted the comments of knitters who had used it and found that what they said was true. It becomes silky and slinky. I'm even considering using it for a summer-weight baby wrap!

I agree with Flicka, although I love linen. Linen softens and drapes more as it is worn and washed (not dry-cleaned).

A Linen blend with tencel or bamboo or rayon would be possible, too.

And I agree with Ceil, trying out a yarn is good news!

Best wishes,

Anna

Hempathy has a nice drape, but I don't know if you'd like the feel of it any better than you like Euroflax. Also, try some bamboo- or tencel-containing yarn.

Expense aside, maybe it will drape nicely once blocked. It might be worth buying one skein and knitting a generous swatch, then blocking it to see how it fares.
