ITO Mizu is an untwisted cotton yarn. In the dye bath, the strand absorbs the color only superficialy. The color is fixed only slightly afterwards. While knitting, the color starts to break open and the raw white cotton beneath becomes visible. The color rubs off a little while knitting and bleeds out slightly during washing. This effect is intended; the garment acquires a used look.
ITO Mizu is washable. We recommend hand wash, separate from other textiles. Available in 4 colors.
