Kawari-Chirimen is a one of Chirimen woven by devising special twist yarn to overcome the drawback of shrinkage.  It is characterized by being hard to shrink and less likely to wrinkle. 

Chirimen is a fabric that uses yarn with almost no twist warp threads, and is alternately woven with tight S-twisted and tight Z-twisted weft threads. Therefore, with scouring, the cloth shrinks and the texture appears on the surface of the fabric with desired irregularities.
