New Shibui samples.

If you’ve been to the shop this week, you might have seen a few new sample garments hanging on our walls. These three were kindly lent to us by one of the wonderful people at Shibui, Carol.


Here’s the “Ship to Shore Shawl,” knit with Shibui Linen. Loosely knit in a fingering weight plant fiber, this one-skein shawl makes a perfect warm-weather project: lightweight and portable. I bet this would be equally lovely in Shibui’s newest yarn, Twig, though I’d get two skeins to be sure you have enough yardage to complete the project.


“Haruni” is a free pattern by Emily Ross, a favorite with many thousands of projects on Ravelry. This feather-light version was knit in Shibui Silk Cloud, a lace weight blend of mohair and silk.


Amy is planning a class on “Haruni” this Summer; keep your eye on our “Classes” page, or let us know if you’d like a heads-up when it’s posted!


Here’s Carol’s “Mix No. 9,” a cowl knit with Shibui Staccato and Silk Cloud held together throughout.


These two yarns combine to make a lush, lustrous fabric, perfect for a next-to-skin garment like a cowl.


Shibui yarns are dyed in matching colorways, to encourage the combining of different fibers. Here are some Staccato/Silk Cloud pairs, ready to become “Mix No. 9.”

    Amy is a great teacher. She is very knowledgeable and patient with slow learners. I am trying to decide on one of her shawls. I am not sure if I can do either.

    • Thanks for your kind words on Amy’s teaching, Ina Phay! Lace shawls do require mindful knitting, but classes are all about taking on new challenges and getting guidance along the way. I’m sure if you decide to tackle one that Amy will help you to succeed in the project!
