A-115 PARI PARI Bamboo paper tape 268m limited edition
If you're a fan of Habu's a-156 bamboo tape yarn...then behold, Pari Pari!
We've secured a very limited edition of this yarn, and are the only Habu stockist in Australia to secure some - so once it's gone, we will not be repeating!
Crisp. Flat. Light. Soft to the hands. It makes a sound like paper or a leaves in the forest when you shake it. "Pari Pari"!!
Soft and light, with real strength and a slightly glossy sheen. Expertly dyed in Japan in four complementing shades, the result is an even tone, and slight shimmer offered by the texture and surface of the bamboo. A wide paper raffia at approx 7-9mm, but can be flattened out to approximately 18-20mm if desired. Will pair perfectly with a-156 if a pure white is needed for contrast.
It is extremely strong. Suitable for knitting, crochet, weaving, basket making - but above all, this will likely be for a special, heirloom project Can be used as warp or weft, and great for bags and specially textured garments. Good as a warp also if you have a reed, which is wide enough to pull through.
