Silk Wrap Paper (n-94)

Ask a question
  • Soft and weightless, linen paper yarn wrapped in silk is light as a feather and soft as down, but with body!

    We completely fell in love with this yarn the first time we saw a garment knitted from it, so we bought all 9 colourways :).

    A bit like cotton, but feather-light with great drape and body. It's not like anything else.

    The "paper" is actually linen, so no worries about it disintegrating, and the raw silk adds a sophisticated depth of colour and texture.

  • Ingredients:

  • Why?

    Do we bother to take so much time and labor... actually weaving or knitting when there are so many good machine woven fabrics or knit wears? They are durable, inexpensive...

    Why?

    Because we must stubbornly believe all the care our actual hands give to each and every process of making a length of fabric creates something more than just a "look."

    It may be subtle, but you know when you wear and touch. You know when that fabric ages with you. You feel the thought of that person, who made it for you.

    We carry “slow” materials, not flashy, not necessary pretty, not cheap, not easy, but those that will give a soul to the fabrics.

    We would like to offer you the best and unique, rarely available. It took us many trips and years to discover & cultivate them. You do not have to do that. They are here.

    I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
