Kibiso Natural Silk yarn is another unusual and beautiful Japanese yarn. It has a beautiful crisp feel with a full body and great structure - which softens a little with use or washing.

Kibiso is the protective outer surface of the silk cocoon and is normally discarded as part of the milling and spinning process. This artisan yarn is crafted from the waste product with the remaining sericin giving the yarn it's body. You can remove the sericin (degum) and the yarn will transform into something which is very soft and fuzzy - a complete contrast!

Kibiso Silk will add wonderful texture to a garment, textile art, jewelry or bag. Surprisingly when knitted or crocheted it makes into a wonderfully light garment with a translucent quality. Kibiso Silk is also gorgeous in your weaving (warp or weft).

Kibiso silk is also available in natural in a finer and a chunky version.

Grateful to find

Item met my expectations. Hard item to find and I was very grateful to find it at this site. I will order more in the future.

So beautiful!

So beautiful! Natural, crisp, quite firm and with a fantastic silky shine - another outstanding yarn from habu textiles. Love it! Thank you Debbie also for great service!


Kibiso Raw Silk. Trying for the first time something like it. Going to knit a summer beret and a bag for my summer linen clothes. Happy!
