ITO Kosho is a soft, handy yarn with a lot of volume and a wonderful stitch definition. It is wollen spun in Japan from 90% mulesing free merino from Uruguay and 10% cashmere. The yarn is spun on a mulespinner which makes it airy and light. The fingering weight yarn is great for accessories like shawls or thin cardigans and pullovers and baby wear. Held double it is wonderful for marling effects. It can be combined with other ITO yarns to create unique fabrics.
