Linen that lights up linen.

Linen that lights up linen.

This yarn is inspired by one of the most extraordinary artists of the Renaissance: Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio after the town where he grew up in northern Italy. Caravaggio’s gift to art and humanity is the revolutionary way he used light and depth, giving dignity to the simple and humble in life.

We at Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale have given his name to a yarn that brightens and lends nobility to a dry-spun rustic yarn that is ideal for upholstery fabrics.

The craftsmanship in Caravaggio yarn lies in our skill in blending pure linen fibres with white resin-coated fibres. From this intimate blend comes a yarn suitable for dyeing with acid colors, showing the overall white spots effect on the fabric.
