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 our recycled silk ITO Kinu mixed with a fine 19.5 micron lambswool.
The fibres are mixed before carding thus producing a mélange effect.
ITO Shimo is scoured after spinning and will bloom even more with washing.
