Noro Okunoshima blends fluffy angora with silk and mohair for a delightfully soft yarn with a delicate halo. The Okunoshima color palette is equally soft - like an impressionist painting. Okunoshima still manages to have great stitch definition, showcasing cables and lace beautifully.
I love how Okunoshima looks after a little warm water bath. The fibers open up and bloom, becoming softer and more lofty, while maintaining the fabric's structural integrity. See our Okunoshima kits here.

I adore this little cowl from Noro Magazine Issue 17. Takes just two skeins andis a fun knit - a perfect gift or treat for yourself.
this sweater is another stunning option using just one colorway to create stripes within stripes.
