Ito ~ Washi

Washi by Ito Yarns follows the tradition of noble Japanese paper yarns with an extremely silky softness. Paper yarns have a lasting tradition in Japan and are often compared to silk in their qualities and character—cool in summer, warm in winter. Washi has good stitch definition and therefore shows lace patterns very nicely. The paper is twisted with a rayon thread to give the necessary stability to garments and accessories. It can be knit single strand for lace and light scarves. For garments, use Washi double strand or in combination with a second Ito Yarn.
Enjoy! 25 grams, 273 yard cones. 54% paper, 46% viscose. Single Strand: US 2.5 (3mm). Double Strand: US 6 (4mm). Gauge 28 sts = 4 inches. Hand wash cold, dry flat.
