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.
I have ordered from Loop several times and never disappointed. The yarn is wonderfully colored and adds such a great texture to any project!
Great service. Love the yarn...it was new to me so when I saw it I know immediately that I would love it for a capelet I want to make.
