Okunoshima is an energetic new yarn that convincingly mimics the very best in true handspun.
It is a trusted silk and wool blend with added Angora and mohair to provide lightness and loft.
Knitting up at a worsted-to-aran-weight gauge, Okunoshima is a unique yarn that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before.
Okunoshima is a small island best known as “Rabbit Island’ for its plentiful, furry wild denizens, making it and apt name for this soft yarn.
