ITO Shimo is a woolen spun yarn that is produced on an old mule spinning system. Mule spun yarns are very high quality woolen yarns. This yarn is a delicate mix of Ito’s recycled silk ITO Kinu mixed with a fine 19.5 micron lambswool. The fibers are mixed before carding thus producing a mélange effect. ITO Shimo is scoured after spinning and will bloom even more with washing. The yarn comes in 15 colors.
We are happy to order colors that we don’t currently carry. Just give us a call.
