Uchiwa is the Japanese word for "unfolding fan" however the naming of the new yarn is based less on the appearance of the fans and more on their cooling effect. The luxurious blend of cotton, viscose and silk ensure a cooling effect upon the skin, as does a fanned breeze from the leaf fan of the same name. Uchiwa sports unique contrasting color twists that create an eye-catching tweedy marl. At the same time, a longer, more subtle color blending produces a beautiful gradation in the background coloring
