Habu - Silk Wrapped Paper (n-94)
Habu Silk Wrapped Paper
Very unique paper yarn made from linen. For an additional strength, a few strands of almost invisible raw silk is wrapped around it. It dyes beautifully. (raw silk will dye slightly differently from the linen paper) Works as a warp yarn for weavers. The knitted fabric from this yarn feels like cotton, but not. Very unusual. Very nice mixed with another yarn such as N-51 or N-52.
The yarn is completely washable! Will not go naked in rain if you are worried about that...
