n-16 indigo cotton gima

n-16 indigo cotton gima


Gima means to "fake linen" in Japanese. It feels like linen, but does soften up greatly as soon as you handle or wash it. Only 3-4 skeins of this yarn will make a whole garment. Good warp yarn. I have offered this gima for many years, but here is a very special addition in natural indigo.

For a pattern idea, please take a look at Coco Knits' Gisela or Gretel. IF you would like to see other colors (not naturally dyed). please go to A-174
