Karin Oberg – Kalinka


Kalinka is a 100% linen 4 ply yarn produced in Sweden by Karin Öberg.

Linen is one of those magical fibres that gets better and better the more you wear it and the more you wash it. It becomes softer, more drapey and doesn’t lose its beautiful sheen. Lightweight and cool to wear, this is the perfect yarn for making a summer top, a light cardigan or a stunning lace wrap or shawl.

Kalinka is available in both earthy, natural shades and eye-catching jewel tones, there is something to suit everyone.

Karin Oberg sources her linen from producers located in Belgium and France. The yarn is then spun in Italy before being sent back to Sweden for dyeing. ⁠
