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.

Yardage (Meter / Yards): 25 g ~ 250 m / 273 yds

Recommended needle size:

Tips: Cooling in summer and warming in winter, Washi can be knit single stranded for lace and lightweight summer scarfs. Can also be knitted with fluffy or drapey yarns to provide some extra structure and body.
