Habu Textiles Cotton Gima is a beautiful, knitted tape with a slightly crisp linen-feel which softens gently as you handle or wash it. "Gima" means fake-linen in Japanese.

Cotton Gima is perfect for knitting and crochet loose weave garments and bags or for weaving (warp or weft). You can also double the Cotton Gima, mix it with other yarns or try modern embroidery or sashiko for a different effect.

Checkout Ravelry for lots of patterns and ideas - just 2 - 4 cones can make a whole garment!

Knitted summer top shown is in shade Khaki #9. Pattern is "Gretel" from Coco Knits.
