ITO Rakuda is a luxurious blend of wool and camel fiber. The soft undercoat of the Bactrian camel has long been considered a luxury fiber,
known for being lightweight yet very warm; the wool provides extra elasticity. Rakuda is a 3-ply yarn, soft and full-bodied, and fills out nicely when washed.
A minimum quantity of 3 cones applies to backorder and special order items.

“Doppio” is an asymmetrical shawl with an unusual shape.
The first section, knit in garter stitch, is followed by a second section in which a second yarn is introduced in a striped pattern. The shawl is completed by a third section in a lace stitch to create visual impact.
The shawl is finished with I-cord borders for a tailored look.
You start knitting from the narrow tip of the shawl, so it can be made as long or as short as you want, depending on how much yarn you have!
228 cm – 89 ¾ in along the longer side and 107 cm – 42 ¼ in along the shorter side (after blocking).

Noten is a bow to the master of colorful patterned fabrics, Dries van Noten.
The sweater is worked seamlessly in rounds in one piece from the top-down. After the collar is worked, the colorwork-yoke is shaped by increases for body and sleeves, and additional radial increases up to the sleeve separation. The sleeve stitches are then placed on hold, underarm stitches are cast on, and you continue to work the body with some side-pleats at chest height onwards to the bottom ribbing.
After the body is completed with color blocks, sleeve stitches are placed back on the needles to be worked top-down in the round.
