Paper Viscose Weaving Yarn ~ ITO
This yarn is created by ITO Yarns in Japan ~ this line of yarn is called Washi. Washi 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. The paper is twisted with a rayon thread to give stability and strength. It is a fine yarn that can be woven as a single strand of weft, or combined with other weft threads, giving your finished piece delightful texture.
