Noro Akari Solo is Akari's new sister. Akari Solo is a single color while the orginal Akari is self-striping. Both are luxuriously soft worsted weight blends of silk and cotton that feel wonderful in the hand and against the skin
"Akari" means light or glimmer in English, the silk adds a beautiful sheen and makes the colors just glow. Akari and Akari Solo are both wonderful four-season yarns perfect for sweaters and accessories.
