Urugami combines the lightness of paper with the soft touch of wool. A twisted paper core fiber is wrapped in fluffy wool yielding a truly one of a kind yarn. The mixture of these different materials produces a smooth yarn with a clear stitch definition. The grip and drape of the knitted fabric are peculiar and unique. Paper textiles have a long tradition in Japan. Paper has similar properties to silk: cooling in summer, warming in winter.
Use Urugami double stranded on 4.00 mm needles or in combination with Sensai. Use Urugami for lace patterns on 3.50-4.00 mm needles.
