This is another gorgeous Paper yarn from Habu Textiles.

Shosenshi Linen Paper yarn is light and slightly crisp to the touch. A very light coating of viscose sizing gives the paper yarn loads of body and makes it very easy to work with. The sizing is permanent and will soften nicely with wear and use.

Crafted from 100% linen, this is a yarn with gorgeous texture and touch. The finished width of the tape is approximately 4mm and the colours are beautifully soft and opaque.

Fabulous for weaving, knitting, crochet, textile arts and even machine knitting, Shosenshi Linen Paper yarn will create a beautiful fabric which is strong, light and interesting. Create fabulously unique garments, jewellery, bags, hats and more. Habu Textiles Shosenshi Paper yarn is lovely to wear against the skin and is washable too - see the notes below for more information.

These are big, big skeins (435 metres!) so you will likely find that you need just 1 skein for a regular size summer top. 

Habu Textiles Shosenshi Linen Paper yarn is a fabulous addition to our collection of Paper Yarns. 

This yarn is now available in White here.
