Most everyone has visited a Japanese or Chinese restaurant and was greeted by a statue of a cat holding up or waving its paw, known as Maneki Neko! They are a lucky charm originating in Edo era Japan, said to bring prosperity to those displaying it. These beckoning felines (maneki = to beckon, neko = cat) are often referred to as Lucky or Fortune Cats.
Cincinnati is home to the largest collection of Maneki Neko in North America, with over 700 cats and cat-themed items! Find them at the Lucky Cat Museum.
Our Mewseum yarn is true red, yellow, black and white to remind you of those charming little cats that greet you at the counter.
