Akari by Noro Yarns

Akari by Noro Yarns

Notes from the Head Gardener
Akari is a soft, worsted weight multi fiber blend that features organic silk and cotton. Translated to "light" or "glimmer" in English, the silk adds a beautiful sheen to this yarn. And you guys know how much I adore silk and what it does for a yarn! Each colorway tends to stay within one color, but transitions from one end of the color range to the other. For example, color 10 (Kaizu) is comprised of all shades of purple,
from red-purple to blue-purple, with a beautiful neutral thrown in.
