Kanzashi are traditional Japanese hair ornaments, typically in vivid colors and floral shapes —worn especially in modern times by brides. 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.
