Louisa Harding Yarns - Akiko

Posted on August 19, 2013 by Rachel Owen | O Comments

Today I'm unpacking Louisa Harding's newest autumn yarn, Akiko.


Akiko is an aran weight wool with a blend of 70% wool and 30% baby alpaca making it incredibly soft and perfect for warmer autumn knits. We have all sixteen shades in stock from naturals through to brighter shades.


As with all Louisa Harding knitting yarns, Akiko is beautifully accompanied by a stunning collection of knitting patterns!
