Gima is a unique yarn. It comprises a group of singles that are somewhat "glued" together to form a flat ribbon-like yarn. It reflects light in a most enchanting way. It has a lot of body, which softens a wee bit as the bond within the group relaxes. It's very cool knit, and provides texture and light for weaving.
