Gima 8.5 is a Japanese cotton yarn with a unique and uncommon appearance, due to a very special production process. Gima looks and feels like flat paper yarn, but is made of washable cotton. The knitted fabric relaxes and softens when used and washed.
You can knit or crochet this yarn, in single or multiple strands, for summer clothes and accessories. Use smaller needle (2-3mm) for dense fabric for tops and sweaters, and larger needle 3.5-4 when working double stranded or when you want a drapey, loose fabric for shawls and lace work.
