ITO Kinu

KINU Header

ITO Kinu is a 100% silk noil yarn, also called organic silk, as it is produced from the leftovers of spun filament silk. Differently colored fibers are blended for this silk noil yarn, to produce a melange effect. Kinu is an all-purpose silk yarn - for sportive as well as for elegant wear. Knit it single or multistranded.

Enjoy its pleasant feel!

MyLYS Shirt by Katrin Schneider

MyLYS Summer Shirt by Katrin Schneider

by Katrin Schneider

The MyLYS summer shirt, designed for my favorite LYS, shows like its hometown Hamburg two different sides. It appears cool and clear from the front but the button and lace at the back add a romantic touch.
The pattern offers two possibilities - a sleeveless version for hot summer days and 3/4 sleeves for cooler days to match the changing weather conditions in Hamburg.

The pattern uses ITO GIMA 8.5 and ITO SHIO held together or ITO Kinu
