Asaginu the Yarn in Linen and Paper by Noro Yarn (麻衣)
Asaginu is a truly unique yarn: It combines traditional Japanese coated paper with linen and a touch of nylon.
The yarn looks like linen yarn, but with a touch more texture.
Ideal for warm weather, this yarn is designed to be worked on larger needles to create a cool, open fabric.
It is wonderful for resort-style tops and cardigans that can be worn over a tank top. The yarn is also lovely for summer scarves, stoles and ponchos. The yarn is durable and will wear like pure linen.
If you are looking for a yarn to create a unique and really very “stylish” garment this is the yarn for you…imagine it also worked with a kid mohair yarn like Vivienne to amplify the brightness of the color….
