Twisted loosely, GENMOU (meaning raw wool in Japanese) is a 3-ply, 100% merino wool yarn that is designed to be as light and soft as possible. Two thin, tightly-spun strands of merino are twisted around fluffy, untwisted carded wool. This unique construction produces an airy and extremely light yarn, while at the same time making it wavy resulting in a very smooth knit fabric. The feel is reminiscent of touching the soft bodies of merino sheep!

It's great for wraps, garments, and accessories. GENMOU is available in 22 colorways, a palette that mixes bright, poppy shades and soft, calm neutrals.
