Asaginu combines the finest linen from France with traditional Japanese “art paper” from the Mino area of Japan called Washi. French linen is widely known as a ‘king of linen’ for its softness, ability to create a vapor barrier (e.g. hygroscopic), and durability. This property of creating a vapor barrier so the knitted fabric does not stick to your skin when you sweat is very high in “Washi” paper as well - the Japanese call this “Shari-kan” which is the minimal contact of the fiber to the skin. The fabric created from this yarn is the perfect Summer yarn for very hot and humid climates.

Best when knit on a slightly larger needle, giving it the breathing space to become a sheer, lightweight fabric, and it’s equally happy being crocheted.
