ns-12 indigo paper silk wrap


Very unique paper yarn made from linen. For an additonal strength, a few strands of almost invisible raw silk is wrapped around it. This is the truely natural indigo dyed yarn. Due to the nature of the indigo dye (indigo basically only lies on the surface of the yarn.), the color tends to bleed for a while, but it will settle down and settle down to an even better blue by aging. Works as a warp yarn for weavers. The knitted fabric from this yarn feels like cotton, but not. Very unusual. The yarn is completely washable! Will not go naked in rain if you are worried about that...
