  • Supple and soft, Reed is a smooth 100% linen chainette that flows easily across the needles for graceful garments and accessories. 

    Reed's chainette construction produces garments with added strength and beautiful drape. A little crisp to begin with as other linen yarns, the natural plant fibres really soften up after hot blocking.

    As noted by Hand Serial in their review:

    Shibui's Reed has the perfect amount of sheen and a lovely hand - just enough drape without drooping, sagging, or the sad ‘worn’ look that sometimes happens to the best linen garments.

    And as with other Shibui yarns, luxurious Reed is perfect on it's own or blended with other yarns.

  • Our Story

    On a visit to Tokyo’s Ginza market in 2004, Darcy Cameron picked up a handwoven bag dyed with persimmons. She loved the bag’s pure simplicity, described by her Japanese friend as “very shibui,” or “elegant with a touch of bitterness.” This inspired an enduring aesthetic.

    Shibui Knits was born in 2007, in the basement of Darcy’s yarn store in Portland, Oregon. Faced with the limitations of yarn from big-brand companies, she started her own label, bringing yarn of the highest quality to small, independent stores like her own. Shibui Knits has since grown to represent timeless sophistication in local yarn stores worldwide. Today, we continue to be grounded in the concept of simplicity well executed, with loving attention to detail.
