【Wire introduction】Dream wire Baby Silk Yak 💙

Gabo wool - Baby silk yak 💙, which arrived 2 days before the Itoshiki Market, is a dream wire that I have been looking forward to, and it is also the first wool-like wire on the island. Although it is a hairy sea type of thread, the Q of Merino, the silkiness of the alpaca and the delicate staple fiber of the yak make the plush QQ of this group of threads surging and soft, not taking the elegant long fiber route, and the silk core thread increases the strength of the wire, which is very easy to weave, and it is not easy to lose hair, which combines the advantages of each fiber~ With Xolla wool- Pastoreta, the lovely fluff is naturally wound...

"Ridge Sweater by Nagasawa Hiromi" When I first saw Hiromi's Ridge Sweater, although at first the photo only revealed a small corner of the body, I intuitively felt that this was a very design piece, and I liked her simple lines, clean shape, and the amazing little double stand collar, which made me constantly think about what kind of wire in my brand would best highlight these elements I am very happy that Hiromi has provided the opportunity for various stores to participate in the Ridge Sweater weaving test, and I can show Stone Wool - Delaine Merino's with this beautiful piece

《Introduction of wire|Limited production Arapawa yarn of the new brand Stone Wool》 Stone Wool has been in stock for a while, and I have not had time to properly introduce several beautiful and luminous wires from this cooperation... After thinking for a long time, first pick this limited production of Arapawa Let's talk about Arapawa yarn, from the Arapawa sheep breed - with a domineering appearance with large curly horns! Such a handsome sheep unexpectedly has a fluffy, soft, and somewhat dry "salt" feel (self-made), generally drier wire, which will make people feel rougher and lighter, but Arapawa is unexpectedly soft and fluffy (not like the silky feeling of ultra-washed wire).

【New brand introduction】From the Spanish native sheep breed Ripollesa and the sustainable development of Xolla Wool

"New Brand Introduction - Xolla Wool" Perhaps the same frequency, I am always deeply attracted by small personal wool brands and wires that are different from the usual bulk wool varieties... The new brand of this collaboration is Xolla Wool, a unique wire from Ripollesa, an endangered sheep breed from Catalonia, Spain. I particularly love and admire Elena "From Sheep to Skein", founder of Xolla Wool – the brand's core values from wool to wire. Originally living in France and Spain, Elena, in the process of re-weaving, hand-spinning and hand-dyeing thread many years ago, was surprised to find that among the many wools she handled, it was common commercial wool, which was missing

Brogna Wool, a precious wool that was once endangered

"Once endangered precious wool - Brogna Wool" The world's sheep species are many, the most common in the wool is nothing more than merino wool, but in fact, each region has its own unique local sheep species, and the characteristics and texture of the fiber are also very distinctive. I have always been fond of the unique yarn produced by local sheep breeds in various places, and it is also one of the important indicators of my line selection. Lanivendole's main ingredients are blended with Brogna wool and Italian alpaca, which must be familiar to everyone, but brogna is sacred, which really arouses my curiosity. Brogna is not only an authentic Italian sheep breed, but at one point it was almost extinct decades ago
