ITO Shimo is a woollen spun yarn that is produced on an old mule spinning system. Mule spun yarns are very high-quality woollen yarns. This yarn is a delicate mix of the recycled silk ITO Kinu mixed with a fine 19.5-micron lambswool. The fibres are blended before carding, thus producing a mélange effect. ITO Shimo is scoured after spinning and will bloom even more with washing.
ITO Shimo comes in 8 colours, four neutral tones and four pale tints.
