This is a necklace that combines two natural materials -silk and linen. Its development started with creating original threads. It’s blended with a French linen that has a fine texture cultivated in the Normandy region of France and a lustrous silk at a ratio of 6:4. With only linen, it would be scratchy, and it would not be suitable for a necklace. So, we mixed the silk in order to tailor a smooth texture with that has a slight lustre to it.
The silk and linen are mixed to become a cotton candy-like cotton with the thickness of a hose, called sliver, and mixed four times, stretching the yarn and making it homogenous while parallelizing the fibers.
The thread is a narrow yarn, called fine count. If the yarn is thin, you can make a beautiful thread ball, so even if it takes extra time and effort, a thin uniform thread is used. For that reason, linen with the same fiber length that is as long as possible, along with high-grade raw materials are required.
Neither the silk or linen are dyed, making use of the color of the material itself. Silk white overlaps the original linen’s grayish beige and it is finished in light grayish beige (creation).
By cultivating yarn, such as “blend condition”, “ideal number”, and “texture-affecting twisting” from the raw spinning process to make the original thread, it becomes lighter and has an elegant shine like this. With a nice air borne out of this process, a very comfortable, easy-to-wear necklace was formed.
