Drama by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns

Claudia Hand Painted Yarns new Drama is 100% Linen yarn, a great alternative to wool for summer garments, with a lovely drape and sheen as well as shawls and scarves. This yarn softens up immediately upon first washing.

Yarns By Design has new summery colors available at the boutique to choose from for your next project. Below is a sampling of the new colors.

Below are two patterns available at the Yarns By Design boutique sampled in Drama:

Fifteen Love by Brittany Wilson © Boho Knitter Chic

The name of this yarn was recently changed from Claudia Handpainted Yarn Linen to Drama, so your tags may say either Linen or Drama as they make the transition.
