Lang Yarns Marlene knitting yarn is a fine and glossy knitting yarn composed of 70% cotton and 30% nylon with slubs of cotton intermittently spaced. This gives a semi-transparent aspect to the finished work.
This yarn knits on knitting needles 4-4,5 mm (US 5-6 / UK 8-7) for a gauge of 19 st. and 30 rows.
In a 50g (1.75 oz) ball there are about 140 m (153 yd). For a sweater for women, size M, allow about 7 balls.
It is machine washable at 30° C (86°F) with detergent for wool and no fabric softener.
