72% Wool 28% Paper

ITO Urugami combines the lightness of paper with the soft touch of wool. A twisted paper core is wrapped in fluffy wool. The mixture of these different materials produces a smooth yarn with a clear stitch definition. The grip and drape of the knitted fabric are peculiar and unique.

Paper textiles have a long tradition in Japan. Paper has similar properties to silk: cooling in summer, warming in winter.
