A unique blend of linen and Japanese art paper (Washi), Asaginu is a perfect warm weather yarn. It feels a little stiff in the skein, but softens as you work with it, and especially after a good blocking. I use a steam blocking method.  See my YouTube review of this yarn where I steam block my swatch

Perfectly happy at 22-24 stitches for an opaque summer top fabric, as well as at 16-18 stitches for a sheer layering fabric. Asaginu is a sophisticated fiber for those who appreciate its elegance and wearability. Deep rich colors for your wardrobe. I especially like these designs for Asaginu
