Meet Shibui’s newest yarn, Vine!
Vine is a unique combination of 41% paper, 31% cotton, and 28% silk. The texture is notable, too – a flat yarn wrapped in lustrous, overlapping threads.
Vine is in the DK weight section, though the suggested gauge ranges from 4.5 – 5 stitches per inch.
I knit a swatch on US size 6 needles, washed and blocked it, and the resulting fabric is lightweight and a little crunchy, though it drapes gently. It seems the perfect material for knitting spring and summer tops.
Come by the shop to see Vine and other Shibui yarns – we keep Pebble, Cima, Silk Cloud, Lunar, Staccato, Reed, Birch, Twig, Fern, Rain, Echo, Maai, and Drift in stock, and have knit samples in most of them. We also have a new sample borrowed from Shibui each month, to spark project ideas and give a tangible sense of how these yarns knit up. We hope you find inspiration here!
