Noro Asaginu


Asaginu combines the finest linen from France with traditional Japanese “art paper” from the Mino area of Japan called Washi. French linen is widely known as a ‘king of linen’ for its softness, ability to create a vapor barrier (e.g. hygroscopic), and durability. This property of creating a vapor barrier so the knitted fabric does not stick to your skin when you sweat is very high in “Washi” paper as well - the Japanese call this “Shari-kan” which is the minimal contact of the fiber to the skin. The fabric created from this yarn is the perfect Summer yarn for very hot and humid climates.
