NEWS | 2023/04/15
A 2-way knit hat with a muffler that can also be used as a hoodie, which is popular every year in the knit collection.
We also paid particular attention to the shape of the hood, which looks beautiful from any angle. It gently wraps your body around your ears, around your neck, and behind your head. When the left and right mufflers are passed through the holes, a perfect and beautiful knot is completed. It keeps you warm by holding it tight and protects you from the cold winter winds.
A lovely aran pattern inspired by tulips blooms on the side. We spent a lot of time researching styles to find out where the flowers bloom when you wear them to make them look more adorable. This item was born from the idea of a designer who commute by bicycle, "I want a warmer knit hat!"
All colors are new, and this year, classical deep colors are available.
Speaking of Aran knit, it is a gentle off-white color. The three-dimensional Aran pattern stands out clearly, and it is a color that you can enjoy the warm knit likeness of hand-knitted. It has been reborn in a warmer generated color than last year's white.
A nostalgic brown that evokes the warmth of nature. Inspired by the color of the fur of brown donkeys found in the Aran Islands. It's a brown that fits not only nostalgia, but also a modern feeling. A deep brown is expressed by dyeing the inside of the thread slightly red with a special dyeing technique.
It looks like black, but it's green. It is a dark green that is very close to black that you can finally notice when you strain your eyes. This is the most popular color at the unveiling party. The unmistakable muted tone fits any occasion, from mode to casual attire.
By deeply dyeing the core with charcoal and the outside with green, it expresses the depth of nature, like rocks covered with moss in the sea breeze of the Aran Islands.
We value the selection of materials so that you can use them every day. 70% merino wool, which has high heat retention among wool, and 30% high-quality soft acrylic are mixed. Both warmth and texture are good.
Because it is a soft and light yarn, it can be used in the long season from winter to the chilly early spring. Furthermore, the charm of this thread is that it clearly shows the knitted fabric. The plump and beautiful knitting pattern peculiar to Aran knit is a special pattern among hand knits that can be expressed only by hand knitting.
[Knit Scarf (muffler)]
The atmosphere of the good old Aran Islands is preserved.
A sparkling winter landscape with snow falling on the trees. By layering the foil in gradation, it shines in various expressions depending on the angle of the light.
If you wrap it tightly twice, the foil will sparkle around your face, giving it a gorgeous impression. Leave it on for a long time to create a clean and calm atmosphere. It is a muffler that you want to enjoy with your daily coordination.
The Aran pattern has an infinite number of patterns, all of which are beautiful and rich in variations. I thought about it carefully based on the old vintages and books that I keep in my atelier as materials.
Smartphone compatible in 2023.
The sweater and matching floral pattern are inspired by the lush summer scenery of the Aran Islands. Leaf pattern on the palm. Every time you wave your hand, the foil sparkles and makes your heart dance. It is a design that makes you feel relaxed and relaxed.
I made small holes on the tip of my index finger and thumb. You can operate your smartphone while wearing mittens. You can check the road a little and operate it when necessary. Since it is in both hands, left-handed people can rest assured. While preserving the traditional patterns and methods of Aran knitting, it is a design that is close to modern life.
The sweater, muffler, and mittens have matching colors, so you can coordinate them and use them together.
Unbleached sheep's original gentle white. The classic white color of Aran knit has a classical and calm atmosphere that fits naturally with any outfit. The three-dimensional Aran pattern stands out clearly, and it is a color that you can enjoy the warm knit likeness of hand-knitted.
・GREEN (new color)
The salty, ash green was inspired by the grass color of the Aran Islands in summer. By mixing earthy brown yarn, it expresses the atmosphere of nature. The green that has just sprouted gently illuminates your winter outfit.
Navy like indigo dyeing with shadows. By weaving together threads that have been dyed in slightly different tones, we have created a deep navy blue that seems to emit light from within. It looks like the bottom of the deep sea or a rocky surface wet with rough waves. It is a popular color regardless of gender.
・PINK (new color)
It's a calm and serene pink color. I was particular about the elegant colors that I can walk together strongly every year from now on. Inspired by the colors of the pretty flowers I saw in the Aran Islands.
A 100% wool yarn with a rustic yet beautiful texture like an old-fashioned Aran sweater. In the Aran Islands, the birthplace of Aran knit, each family has a history of spinning sheep yarn. I was inspired by the ball of yarn I met when I first visited his place.
Sheep wool has high heat retention. We have selected threads with imperfect beauty due to handwork, as if they were spun by human hands, expanding the joy of wearing the blessings of nature.
Because it retains the charm of the texture, it has a wool-like scent. For those with sensitive skin who are concerned about the comfort of their skin, it is safe to enjoy it with a turtleneck. There is a mix of plant scraps brought by sheep and a variety of sheep colors. Enjoy it as the charm of nature.

[What is Alan knit? ]
The existence of a hand-knit that is born with someone in mind as much as the number of stitches and steps. Designer Fujisawa continues to be inspired by Aran knit, which originated in Ireland. It has been handed down for nearly 100 years as a hand-knitted sweater on a small island called the Aran Islands.
Even if you look around the world today, there are really few areas where the traditional culture of handicrafts remains. I've come across many hand-knitted sweaters that have been lovingly crafted by someone and still shine after decades. "Even after 30 or 40 years, I want it to warm someone's heart." With this in mind, YUKI FUJISAWA is particular about Aran knit, which can only be expressed by hand-knitting.
[We are undertaking item maintenance]
All knit items can be hand washed at home with a mild detergent.
In addition, YUKI FUJISAWA accepts after-sales maintenance such as fraying of knitwear after purchase and order repair of foil so that you can enjoy "changing with time". Because we are hands-on craftsmen in our atelier, we would like to spend time with you so that you can use our products for a long time.

The ONLINE reservation will be open from April 15th (Sat) 20:00 to April 30th (Sun) 23:59. Since each piece is hand-knitted by a craftsman, it will be sold out as soon as it reaches a certain number.
We hope that you will look forward to meeting hand-knitted items like “friends” with whom you will spend a long time together.
