Maggi's Knits

I have a lot of Maggi’s Knits linen yarn. I don’t know whether to use one, two, three, four…strands???:???:

I’m making a drop stitch shawl. Has anyone used this yarn???

Here are the specs on the yarn:

Well, the description says,

is often worked as a double strand to give you a versatile worsted weight.
, so it would seem if you wanted something about worsted weight, you’d double strand it…if you want it thicker you’d use more strands and for thinner use it as it comes.

Interestingly, the yarn weight is listed as worsted in the “specs” below the description. Sounds like you might need to have some in hand to see how it really is.

What weight does your shawl call for?

Oh, how stupid of me…the pattern calls for worsted weight…Thanks
