The knit cardigan was the most popular last year. The new "Pocket LOVE Letter Cardigan" is a light and warm jacket with a letter-shaped pocket.

A love letter with a hand-knitted heart inside the plump, envelope-shaped pocket. Each piece includes a one-of-a-kind heart in a random color and shape. It will be interesting to see what kind of love you will receive once it is completed. When you meet someone you like, gently hand them this heart. Please enjoy the various forms of love♡.

I knitted a heart with a memory yarn that I met at a wool factory in Ireland, Nora, an old craftsman who works as a color designer, and she pulled it out from the back of her chest of drawers and handed it to me when we parted ways.

The pockets are decorated with new buttons, one on each side. The statue is sculpted with a lovely and lively expression that looks like it's about to sing.
This year's button shape is a collaboration with Umano Hanamuke, a wood carving artist active in the mountains of Okayama. Last year, designer Fujisawa was inspired by photos taken during his travels to the Baltic countries and Scandinavia, and the scenery from his travels was expressed in 12 different patterns.

What is “Uma no Hanamuke”? In Japan, there was once a custom of pointing the nose of a horse in the direction of the destination to pray for safety on the journey. From there, the word "hanamuke" came to mean celebrating a new life or starting a new life, and sending poetry and encouragement.

``To celebrate the future of a person who is about to depart, send them off by giving them gifts and having a feast.'' This button prays and watches over the journey of each person's life as they begin their daily journey. ” ( YUKI FUJISAWA production diary /author Yume Nomura)

[COLOR]

HAPPY GRAY

A grayish MIX color with the depth of natural light, like a Claude Monet painting.
If you look at it from a distance, you'll see a classical and elegant light gray color, but if you look closely, you'll see a colorful landscape with emerald plants sprouting and dancing pale pink flower petals.

It's a versatile color that perfectly suits people of all ages and will flatter your complexion. At the venue, we received many surprised comments such as ``I've never seen such a beautiful gray color.''

We created an original blend by knitting Donegal Yarns' colorful yarns with gray yarns. Based on light mint, peach color, blue, yellow, green, black... Countless beautiful particles of color are dancing. Even though it's gray, it makes you feel happy ♡ It's a one-of-a-kind color only available at YUKI FUJISAWA.

The colors are so rich, like impressionist pointillist paintings, that when photographed, they look like a monochromatic gray color, which makes me wonder if there are any colors that are so difficult to capture in photographs.

However, when you receive it, we are sure that you will love the beauty of HAPPY GRAY, which is a mixture of natural color palettes.

【MATERIAL】

100% PURE MERINO WOOL (origin: Ireland)

Ireland is a traditional wool producing region. We toured the Donegal Yarns factory, which is one of the oldest wool spinning factories and continues to produce wool today. When the first mills were established in the Donegal region of northwest Ireland in the early 1800s, the wool and tweed fabrics spun in this region quickly gained a reputation for their warmth and durability, and became sought after around the world. It has a long history.

Donegal Yarn is made using traditional methods that have been passed down through generations. There are even craftsmen who have worked for two generations, and wool continues to be produced by professional hands using manufacturing methods that have remained unchanged to this day. The dyeing, blending, and twisting techniques of skilled craftsmen put their passion into creating a single yarn.

Sometimes Nep of a different color than the recipe or plants brought in by the sheep are mixed into the thread, which is proof that they are aiming for zero waste. Because we value the blessings of nature and emphasize production without waste, all of the wool produced during the yarn blending process within the factory is recycled into a single yarn.

The beauty of the threads, which are filled with the passion of craftsmen who value making things with their own hands and do not waste a single piece, makes you feel the connection with nature and the warmth of handiwork. This 100% wool yarn has a soft and beautiful texture, like an Aran sweater from the good old days. Sheep wool has high heat retention and durability. We have carefully selected threads that have the beauty that only comes from handicrafts, making them look as if they were spun by hand, increasing the joy of being clothed in the blessings of nature.

[HOW TO CARE]

You can hand wash it at home with a neutral detergent. We undertake after-sales maintenance to fix frayed knits after purchase.

【NOTICE】

Due to handwork, individual differences in size may occur. Please enjoy the uniqueness of each piece as a handcrafted texture. Pre-order products are pre-release samples, so some specifications may change.
