Silk Gima

new product at purl soho

Habu's Silk Gima is an earthy, elegant beauty! In Japanese "gima" means "fake linen", so although it may feel like linen, this gima is 100% silk. And like linen, this fiber softens with wear and washing. For knitting, crocheting and weaving, Silk Gima is strong, fascinating and absolutely stunning!
