Kanzashi are traditional Japanese hair ornaments, typically in vivid colors and floral shapes — worn especially in modern times by brides.
One of NORO's newest offerings, Kanzashi is unique in its nubby boucle texture. Kanzashi's incredible look and feel is perfect for adding pizzazz to simple stitches. A bulky self-striping yarn in a mohair, organic silk, wool, poly blend, Kanzashi works up beautifully into colorful accessories or sweaters.
This nubby yarn is the ultimate attention-getter!
