Habu - Shosenshi Linen Viscose Paper (A-60)
This is a "paper" yarn made from 100% linen. It has a very thin coating of a viscose sizing, so feels crisp.
The sizing is permanent, though it will soften with use. Great yarn to weave with as warp or weft. (Be careful as a warp yarn!)
Great as knitting yarn for jackets, etc. The yarn does work on a knitting machine if you set it correctly.
