Noro's Akari is a beautiful, soft, light-weight DK yarn that features a gorgeous, subtle sheen. Akari is a multi-fibre blend that features organic silk and cotton spun with Mohair, wool and strong synthetics to add fibre substance. The word Akari translates to "light" or "glimmer" and this beautiful sheen comes from the organic silk. This amazing yarn lends itself to multi-season garments and is a joy to both knit or crochet in.
