MERLIN, making summer sweaters of merino-linen yarn
Colorways from left to right:

I have a crush on the MERLIN. This single ply of 90% merino yarn and 10% linen is so soft and eyes rustic due to the linen. The linen is not dyed and will stay white. The linen is also a bit irregular and creates sometimes white flocks.I love it.
In the summer of 2020 I knitted a Yume (Isabell Kraemer) with this yarn. The original idea was to have a summer sweater. In practise I wear it whole year long. And it's time to make another one.
