I am starting my second broken rib blanket (Loop pattern) using Akari. The colors are so beautiful and the finished product has great drape and a super cozy feel. I had enough leftover yarn to also complete a baby wrap sweater. Love this yarn!
Not use to the thick and thinner nature of this yarn —In progress on project but so far so good. Hope it’s cool enough for warmer weather
The cotton/silk/mohair/wool blend makes a wonderful lightweight all season throw blanket for my den. Feels so good knitting it up.
I bought this yarn on a whim because I was interested in the cabin blanket (my mom has requested a knit blanket for years). I am now completely in love with this yarn! It's the first time I've actually meditated on yarn. As I knit, the colors change slightly, the thickness of the yarn and tightness of the spin varies a bit, you can see how the colors are creating through the spin process - adding in flecks and pieces here and there. I'm fascinated simply watching the yarn change as it passes through my needles.
I proceeded to buy up the rest of the stock available (on sale). I'm not normally one to go for yarn with color changes, but this stuff is amazing.
Also, Loop was fantastic in getting me the yarn promptly (all the way in CA). Everything was smooth, absolutely no complaints.
We couldn't have said it better. Akari lends itself to an all around wonderful knitting experience, and we are so glad you are enjoying it. Thank you for such a detailed review - Laura
Such a lovely color for summer/fall. Feels wonderful.
