Aki Fuyu is the second Shawl Kit collaboration between Eri (the knitwear designer) and Michelle (the creative mind behind Kokon Yarn). The inspiration for both the beautiful shawl designs and the amazing two colourways that the shawl kits are available in come from both Eri's and Michelle's love of nature and the shade and shapes of Autumn and Winter.
Aki means Autumn in Japanese and Fuyu means Winter.
The Aki Fuyu Shawl is sold in kit form in two colourways.

3 x 100g skeins of Kokon Limited Edition Wool Fingering Weight Yarn
