ITO Washi

Availability: In stock (1)

ITO Washi follows the tradition of noble Japanese paper yarns with an extremely silky softness. The yarn has a good stitch definition and therefore also shows lace patterns nicely. The paper is twisted with a rayon thread which gives the necessary stability to garments and accessories. Washi is washable. We recommend handwash.

Tips: Paper yarns have a lasting tradition in Japan. They are often compared to silk in their noble character and have similar properties to silk: Cooling in summer and warming in winter. Washi can be knit single-stranded for lace and lightweight summer scarfs. For shirts and jackets, we recommend knitting Washi double-stranded or in combination with Niji or Asa.
