◆Quick and easy UV protection for the neck

The neck cover is knitted into a cylindrical shape, so you can protect your neck from ultraviolet rays just by putting it on quickly. There is no need to worry about dropping it like a stole. The thin knitted fabric with Washi yarn that has excellent water absorption and quick-drying properties and yarn that has UV protection and cooling effect can be worn all day long with little discomfort due to perspiration.

◆Washi paper yarn for a light and comfortable feel

Washi yarn is highly absorbent of water and moisture, so you can use it without feeling sweaty or sticky. The unique crispness of the washi yarn reduces the feeling of sticking to the skin, and it is also noteworthy that it feels light and smooth to the touch. The functional yarn with contact cooling effect is knitted together, so you can use it comfortably with a cool touch even on hot days.

◆Washi yarn, an eco-friendly material

Washi yarn is water-resistant, strong, and resistant to fluffing, so it can be washed repeatedly and used for a long time. It is also soft and comfortable to the skin. Washi yarn is a natural fiber, so it is environmentally friendly and eco-friendly material that can be used for a long time.
