This special yarn is made from the stalk of ramie (please see AOS-6). The skin of the stalk is stripped, and the fiber is split to a thin thread one by one into approx. 1 yard length. The ends are twisted and connected together all by hand. Extremely labor intensively created yarn. Still available from a small village in China. Makes an unusual light knitted fabric when carried 2 to 3 strands together. Great texture for weavers, basket makers, etc. Very sculptural. Dyes well. The color may change from one lot to the other. Each ball comes in a slightly different size. We will confirm the exact weight and the cost at the time of the order.
Please note that the colors you see on the screen may not be accurate as each monitor displays differently. Thank you for your understanding.
