Yonagatsuki - month of the long nights

Yonagatsuki in Beyul DK

Snuggle up in this lush cardigan by Japanese designer Eri Shimizu. Worked seamlessly from the top down, Eri has designed this with rich cable detailing down the arms, showcasing Beyul's spectacular stitch definition. A generous shawl collar snuggles into your neck, perfect for cocooning while brisk winds blast the seaside cliffs.

Eri says that because the nights are longer in autumn, the word 'yonagatsuki / 夜長月' breaks down as such:

Night / 夜 / yo
Long / 長 / naga
Month / 月 / tsuki

Month of the long night . I love how poetic that sounds!

Eri used Muscavado for her sample in this luscious baby Yak, Silk and ethically farmed Merino blend. The colour is a warm brown with salmon undertones, giving it a juicy glow, perfect for pairing with mustards, pinks and rust. I'll be dyeing more of this gorgeous neutral next week and shipping when dry, so order now to get in on the next batch!
