Sasawashi by Daruma (Yokota Co) is made from Kumasasa, a higher altitude bamboo from Japan. As Kumasasa has antibacterial, deodorising and UV protective properties, the resulting yarn is well suited to crocheting hats, bags and other durable and wearable items.

Has a slightly papery feel, this 3 ply paper cord style comes in 17 gorgeously fashionable shades, this is our go-to yarn for spring and summer accessory crafting. 

As a guide 3 balls will make a small brimmed hat; 5 or up 6 balls for a wide broad brim hat. 

One ball is plenty sufficient to use as stitching to weave a small to medium sized coiled basket.
