The NEWEST yarn by Shibui! Tweed SIlk Cloud is whole new way to combine silk and mohair, and we promise there's nothing else like this out there!
Silk and Kid Mohair combine for a subtle, graceful take on a tweed yarn. Knit alone for a delicate fabric or combine with other Shibui yarns to add texture and dimension.
Just like the original and much loved Silk Cloud, it's tweedy sister is soft as gossamer clouds, and still contains is substantial silk core (35%!) which adds lustre. The big difference is that Tweed Silk Cloud uses a deliciously crunchy raw silk.
Silk Cloud is a near weightless yarn which shines with radiance. Used alone it makes an ethereal, airy fabric, or combine with another yarn for the ultimate upgrade of a glowing halo and baby kisses.
Made with some of the finest mohair available and we LOVE that this is one of the few mohairs with NO ITCH!
Ingredients: 65% kid mohair 35% silk
Length: 174m (190yd)
Gauge: Lace 4.5mm (US 7) 18 sts = 10cm (4")
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.
