Sunny Nwazue lives in Nigeria, but she was born in New York City. Her features are West African, but she's albino. She's a terrific athlete, but can't go out into the sun to play soccer. There seems to be no place where she fits in. And then she discovers something amazing—she is a "free agent" with latent magical power. And she has a lot of catching up to do. Soon she's part of a quartet of magic students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality. But as she’s finding her footing, Sunny and her friends are asked by the magical authorities to help track down a career criminal who knows magic, too. Will their training be enough to help them combat a threat whose powers greatly outnumber theirs? Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor was part of our Stitch and Witch Book Club.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
