Only one left of each colorway!
A most unusual yarn!
This is made of 69% Linen + 30% Japanese art paper + 1% Polyamide and with 153 yards per 50g skein.
Perfect for warm weather and for those who prefer to knit with non-animal fibers!
The latest Noro Magazine (#20) includes four simple patterns to make with this.
(We also have a very small quantity of a special Asaginu publication with 8 more designs; if you are interested in this one, contact me and if any are left, we'll work it out. The last photo on this page shows the patterns that are included in this magazine.)
Basically the patterns are quite basic and allow the yarn to take center stage. I copied photos of the four from the Noro magazine for this page so you can get an idea. The ones I show here all require between 4 and 8 balls depending on the size and the design. Another idea is a simple summer scarf or wrap, with one or two balls, to cover up after a day at the beach or when going from sun into air condtioning.
Really there are lots of ways to "play" with this unique yarn.
To quote Noro (from the magazine, page 29, in part) "...It works best when knit on a slightly larger needles, giving it the breathing space to become a sheer, lightweight fabirc, and it's equally happy being corcheted. "
A shot of steam is all that is needed for blocking. "This yarn cannot be wet-blocked or washed, so remember to dry clean only. "
We brought in two colorways to try:
1. #22: Ume-murasaki: This is a deep rich wine.
2. #23: Hanada: Again, deep and rich, this one is a teal.
