Karakumi

Traditional Silk

Until now, kumihimo braiders interested in working on the karakumi dai stand, could not find the type of silk traditionally used on this stand (quite different from the other kumihimo silk typically used on the other stands). The standard weight is quite common (similar to 2/20 silk or lace weight yarn) and there are many vendors that offer this weight of silk in many colors. But karakumi silk has a very tight S ply which could not commonly available in similar weight silks.
