Hasegawa Myrtle Cotton Gima Tape Yarn on a cone. Wonderful for machine knitting or large projects. The cone weighs 2 pounds 13 ounces including the cone.
Wonderful and very unusual 100% cotton Gima tape yarn which gets softer as you work with it. It may be used as a single strand or doubled. Created and dyed in Japan by meticulously aligning the fibers and coating them with viscose rayon solution. It is a specially processed yarn that has excellent features in moisture absorption and evaporation.
The number of the factories that can carry out such special processing is very limited. Although the manufacturer suggests dry cleaning the yarn, it can be hand washed in cool water and dried flat. It will create a very unique item. Can be used for knitting, crochet and weaving.
