Shibui’s Fall/Winter 2015 Collection is here, in more than one sense. The patterns arrived with Dune and the new Shibui colors last week, and the trunk show arrived just yesterday. We’re offering a special 10% trunk show discount on Shibui yarns while the show is up, so don’t miss it!
These garments are made with seven Shibui yarns in a variety of combinations.
Shibui yarns are made to be mixed together, knitting with two or three strands of yarn at a time to create bespoke fiber and color blends.
Each Shibui yarn brings its own characteristics to the mix, and though these patterns may be shown in a specific yarn combination, you should feel free to substitute within the limitations of gauge to create exactly the fabric you desire.
Anne has been knitting “Truss” as a sample for the shop, a simple, wearable tunic in a short or long length.
It’s made with Maai and Pebble held together, for an impossibly soft fabric that’s lightweight in spite of it’s relatively big gauge. This means it knits up quickly and easily, but with a highly fashionable result–a winning combination. I can’t wait to see Anne’s “Truss” completed!
The “Truss” that came with the trunk show is beautiful, too, and a great illustration of how two unexpected colors can blend when knit together.
Come by the shop to peruse the Shibui Fall/Winter 2015 pattern collection, to admire the Shibui Trunk Show, and to get Shibui yarns at a 10% discount! We’ll have the show up until September 27th, 2015. Hope to see you there soon!
Just a reminder–all sales are final on discounted items; there can be no exchanges, returns, or special orders. Thanks!
