This is an "overtwist" yarn. It shrinks and pleats approx. 32% after washed. (like Issey Miyake's Pleats Pleats.) If you are using this yarn as a warp, we strongly suggest using a sectional warping back beam for the minimal touching of the yarn. Please avoid any moisture, which may take off the starch on the surface of the yarn until woven. It will cause the yarn to curl up, and you will not be able not untangle that. If you are a machine knitter, you may be able to get a very interesting effect.
