Check out the latest addition to the Sanjo Silk website. It's a 100% Linen Paper yarn (14-007). It's so very cool, and works up like a dream. It's surprisingly strong; the Japanese have been making wearable paper for centuries, so they know what they're doing. I guess if we had to name this yarn, we'd call it "Russell" for the beautiful sound it makes (yeah, yeah, it's a play on words...get it?)
We're working on those beautiful Sari Silks for the website. They're currently available at the Silk Weaving Studio on Granville Island, so get the jump on them if you're in Vancouver-town. Stay tuned, they're worth the anticipation.
