This is a favourite yarn at Sanjo. It's a tussah yarn with lots of delicious lumps and bits of noil spun into it. It has a warm, neutral colour, and it's spectacular both woven and knitted. For weaving, we recommend using it only in the weft. Superfine hand-knitted into character lace, or machine knitted, or knitted along with another yarn to add texture and subtle colour.
