Stainless Steel Weaving Yarn ~ ITO
This silk stainless steel weaving yarn is created by ITO Yarns in Japan ~ this line of yarn is called Tetsu. Tetsu is a wonderful marriage of silk and metal. A stainless steel filament twisted with mulberry silk adds "memory" to the fabric and allows it to be formed or shaped sculpturally after it comes off the loom. It's a very fine yarn most suitable as weft - you can pair it with another strand of a different material, or weave with a single strand.
