This is an unusual hand-dyed yarn made, not from paper, but from 100% linen. Beautifully translucent, Hand Kasuri Paper has a very thin coating of viscose sizing, so it feels crisp. The sizing is permanent, though it will soften with use. Dyed in kasuri, expect beautiful ikat-type patterns to reveal themselves in the fabric you create. For weaving, crochet, and knitting, use this yarn for unique scarves, blankets, and jackets! We cannot wind this yarn here at the warehouse, it is not swift friendly! We recommend hand winding.
