ITO Shimo


ITO Shimo is a woolen spun yarn that is produced on an old mule spinning system.
Mule spun yarns are very high quality woolen yarns. This yarn is a delicate mix of our recycled silk ITO Kinu mixed with a fine 19.5 micron lambswool. The fibres are mixed before carding thus producing a mélange effect.
ITO Shimo is scoured after spinning and will bloom even more with washing. The yarn comes in 8 colors, 4 neutral tones and 4 pale tints.
