Asaginu Paper Linen
Asaginu is best when knit on a slightly larger needle, giving it the breathing space to become a sheer, lightweight fabric, smooth and soft fabric. We also love it for crochet - especially bucket hats! Asaginu combines the finest linen from France with traditional Japanese art paper from the Mino region of Japan called Washi. French linen is widely known as a king of linen for its softness, durability and ability to create a "vapor barrier." This unique vapor barrier -the Japanese call this Shari-kan- is present in washi paper as well. Having this barrier between the knitted fabric and your skin allows your skin to breathe, making Asaginu the perfect yarn for hot weather.
