This rustic wool yarn (a little thick and thin quality, single-ply) celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2018. An excellent choice when knitting or crocheting outerwear garments, accessories and for felting (fulling) projects. This beloved self-striping yarn has a devoted following and now incorporates a little merino wool - something it didn't have when it first came on the market. The name reflects how people in Japan say "crayon".
