SAWADA, which produces and sells knitting yarn, is developing yarn using Japanese paper, a uniquely Japanese material.

Japanese paper, cut into extremely thin strips, is twisted with polyester into yarn to create a lightweight yarn. When this is woven in combination with other materials, it can create a knitted fabric with a wide range of expressions.

Characterised by the crisp texture of Japanese paper, the yarn can be used not only for knitted fabric, but also for woven materials. It is easy to care for, and can be washed by hand at home. A rich variation of 32 colours is available.
