So, following on from my last post I have now seen and touched some lotus fibre! Here’s a pic:
It is definitely a lot like linen in feel, but has a sheen that’s really silky. The cloth had a great drape and that surprised me because it had a… stiffness? density? I’m not sure what the word is, but it was like I could imagine linen of a similar ply feeling like.
The muted colours of this scarf are lovely too, don’t you think? And the pattern is part colour and part different ply yarns which made for a very attractive scarf!
