This kumihimo is a pure & genuine silk braid.
This thin and sharp braid is called “yokaku-gumi”
We arranged them vertically in two colors.
This silk braids have square cross-sections.
The same 8 balls make them as the rounded “Edo-uchi-himo”, but this braid is slightly stiffer than “Edo uchi-himo.”
Also, when “youkaku” braided thinner, it produces a sharper cord.
It features a square cross-section with corners. 2 colors of silk threads are used, so we recommend using it for jewelry with particular attention to detail. It is also suitable for making spiritual jewelry with natural stones because of its hardness and resistance to unraveling.
