Noro Asaginu yarn combines the finest linen from France with traditional Japanese art paper. French linen is widely known as a king of linen for its softness, durability and ability to create a “vapor barrier.” This unique vapor barrier -the Japanese call this Shari-kan– is present in washi paper as well. Having this barrier between the knitted fabric and your skin allows your skin to breathe, making Asaginu the perfect yarn for all types of warm weather garments.
