Shizen yarn kit from the book "Wabi Sabi Book" .
Please note that this kit does not include patterns.

Shizen is a pullover knitted with 100% banana fiber NOMADNOOS SILKY BANANA.
Designed by Eri Shimizu.

For us, when we think of bananas, we associate them with fruits, and we wonder what the thread is like. NOMADNOOS SILKY BANANA is made from banana trunk fiber, and has a luster like vegetable fiber, and the knitted fabric is supple. Shizen has a generous size and you can enjoy the delicate drape when you wear it. The ribbed pattern all over creates a beautiful vertical line.

It's a simple design, but with some ribs combined, braids, smocking, slits, and other techniques typical of Eri Shimizu, it's a fun piece to knit with your hands.
