Two exquisite yarns from Shibui Knits were re-stocked last week – just as the weather turned decidedly cooler. Feast your eyes on Silk Cloud and Pebble! Knit together or alone, these yarns will take any project to the “next level”… 🙂
This weightless yarn shines with radiance. Knit Silk Cloud by itself for an ethereal fabric or strand it with another yarn for a glowing halo.
60% Kid Mohair / 40% Silk
330 yds / 300 m / 25 g
20 sts = 4″ on 7 US / 4.5 mm
Light and soft, Pebble is a tweed flecked yarn with complex colors. It easily doubles and triples, gathering depth without effort.
48% Recycled Silk / 36% Fine Merino / 16% Cashmere
224 yds / 205 m / 25 g
25 sts = 4″ on 3 US / 3.25 mm
A little project inspiration….
Here are two projects we’ve knit which combine these two gorgeous yarns.
We’ve knit several versions of the the Groovy pattern by JumperCablesKnitting but this one may be our favourite. The Silk Cloud and Pebble were a dream pairing and the finished texture is light, warm, and soft with a delicate halo. The addition of the contrast stripe at the end adds a modern edge to an otherwise “quiet” shawl and the shape of the piece allows it to work as a wrap or scarf.
We love everything about the Cirrus pullover by Shellie Anderson – the unique shape, the length, the collar. The Silk Cloud lends shimmer while the Pebble provides structure and beautiful drape. From the generous cowl neck to the curve of the hem, there are no sharp angles to this piece. An elegant topper over a longer blouse or tunic. Soft and warm and light as air.
