japanese wool

So I ordered a bundle of Japanese silks and wool scraps for doll clothes some time ago, which I received today, and among the woolens was… this.

I mean, I don’t mind small manjis in my silks or kimonos; they’re so common as a symbol for good luck and are often woven into the silk of rinzu kimono, but this is a little too much I think. Especially given the colours.

I mean, the fabric itself is gorgeous in texture and everything, but I don’t particularly think I want my dolls to wear something made off of this. Maybe I can use it just for patchwork and cut it so the manji aren’t visible…?
