Japanese wool and Cashmere garments
These Japanese wool garments are hand-spun and hand-knitted. Rare Japanese wool is shorn at a farm and washed by hand to remove dirt and oil. Hand-washing does not remove too much oil from the wool, keeping it warm. Each garment is made from the wool of one sheep, thus retaining that sheep’s unique texture. The garments are made by Kana Ushijima, who creates beautiful hand-spun wool yarns, and Tomoko Kodama, who hand-knits the unique yarns with precision. Cashmere has excellent heat retention properties. Cashmere garments are also very light and give everlasting comfort. The cashmere from Inner Mongolia, considered to be of the highest quality, is spun in Japan and knitted with a seamless ‘whole garment’ design.
We are pleased to present an exhibition of “Japanese wool and Cashmere garments”. These precious garments are a collaboration of nature and people and will grace us with everlasting love.
