Although this yarn's construction suggests it's a 1-Ply, it really appears to be 3 fine strips of paper together, loosely twisted. Japanese paper is strong, and the soft twist gives it much more strength. Don't hesitate to knit or weave with this yarn. It has a soft "rustle" and a gentle crispness. Because it's a cellulose fibre, dye it using fibre reactive or natural dyes. Try running it alongside a superfine yarn in a completely different texture for some unique fabrics!
