This fiber has natural anti-bacterial, anti-UV, and anti-odor properties. Daruma recommends using this yarn to make hats. The yarn will soften a little when it comes into contact with water, but go back to normal when it dries. The yarn was treated with water-repellent during the dyeing process, but the water-repelling effect will fade over time.
