Twisted loosely, GENMOU is a 3-ply 100% merino wool yarn with one ply of untwisted, carded wool while the other two plies are thin, tightly-spun threads that hold the wool together. 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. It is DK weight, warm, and great for wraps, garments, and accessories. GENMOU is available in 21 colorways, a palette that mixes bright, poppy shades and soft, calm neutrals.
Please note that the GENMOU available at amirisu has English labels and is sold in 50 g balls, larger than the size generally sold in Japan.
