Japanese silk and linen

Shawl, silk and linen, garter stitch, size 5 cherry wood cable needle, 32 in.

This fine gauge silk and linen has a soft texture and a crispy texture.  The linen paper yarn has little flags - they are tiny and just large enough to make a little sound as the fabric moves.  They aren't big enough to be scratchy, and they soften with wear. I enjoy its light weight. 

This is the second shawl using these same yarns together and I'm liking them all over again.
