New in Store – SHIBUI!

Lisa and I talked for some time about adding products from Shibui Knits to our inventory and we’ve finally taken the plunge!  Shibui is known for cultivating a unique collection of finest quality yarns with incredible textural appeal in an array of signature colours – the result is a luxurious range of products that are beautiful to knit and wear.  We’ve started with Shibui Linen and Silk Cloud but will continue to add other lines over the next months. These yarns are wonderful to knit with on their own but can also be paired with others to stunning effect (more about the Shibui ‘Mix’ concept later…).

Shibui Linen


From the Shibui website: “Clean, crisp linen fiber is spun into a unique chain ply structure for Shibui Linen, our breeziest yarn yet. The quintessential summer yarn, Linen knits up into light, airy garments that become softer with every wear. An array of vibrant colors brings Linen to life and provides a fresh spin on this classic fiber.”
