This airy and lightweight top is perfect to wear as an accent/statement piece.
You can layer it with another garment (such as a dress as worn by the model pictured).
This piece is knit with a surprisingly soft silk stainless steel thread which creates an even more unique texture to the piece.
All pieces are loom knitted, hand tailored.
Width 40" Length 20"
The Paper Yarn is made of linen paper from Kyoto, Japan.
For additional strength, a few strands of nearly invisible raw silk is wrapped around the yarn.
The Paper Yarn garment is knit with a loose gage so it is airy and fragile. It will soften and grow over time. Please massage the paper yarn garment gently by pulling sideways (against the way of the stitches ) to help shape it. This is a way to bring back the garment’s fluffiness.
It is not recommended to wash the garment. Please keep in mind that when it is wet there is a possibility the color will fade slightly, like origami paper. Please be careful when you wear it and simply air it out afterwards or dry clean it.
Some items may not be in immediate stock and I will need to create pieces.
The time it takes will depend on the piece, ranging from a couple weeks to a month.
I hope you understand and are patient, as I am the only creator, and my knitwear is all made by hand.
Thank you for your understanding.
