Akari, a brand new yarn from Noro, was introduced for the spring season, but it’s a perfect year-round fiber. A lovely worsted weight blend of silk and cotton, with just enough wool to make it nice to knit.
The colors are more subtle for a quieter more tonal kind of Noro option. A big generous 200g skein gives you more than 500 yards, so you can work a shawl with just one skein, and most summer tops take only two!
