Brooklyn Tweed and Shibui Samples of the Month!

December is here, and with it, new featured samples from Brooklyn Tweed and Shibui!

Our Brooklyn Tweed Sample of the Month is Jared Flood’s “Umaro,” an impressive lace and cable blanket knit with two strands of BT Quarry held together.

Quarry is Brooklyn Tweed’s heaviest yarn, a bulky weight, woolen-spun Targhee-Columbia wool. Each plump 100 gram skein boasts 200 yards, quite a bit for a yarn that knits up at 3-3.5 stitches per inch. It’s what our friend Emily used for her own “Umaro” blanket, below – she brought it in this week for show and tell, and reports that she snuggles underneath it on the couch with her kids all the time. A success!

Our Shibui Sample of the Month is “sequences,” by Lori Versaci, knit with Shibui Drift.

Drift is a treat to work with, a luxurious worsted weight blend of merino and cashmere.

We’re offer a 10% discount on Brooklyn Tweed Quarry and Shibui Drift until the end of the month – come by soon to take advantage and see these beautiful knit items!

Shibui Sample of the Month: Sandoval Hat.

November is here, and with it, a new Shibui Sample of the Month! We offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarn purchased for our featured sample until the end of the month.

Our current Shibui Sample of the Month was knit by one of our very own teachers – Marsha made this “Sandoval Hat” as a sample for a recent class on the subject. It takes 2 skeins of Shibui Drift, a luscious blend of merino and cashmere.

Below is a bit of show and tell – one of Marsha’s students, Jill, completed her “Sandoval Hat” and immediately cast on for another.

Drift is a treat to work with, and we’re offering it at 10% off all month long. Look for Drift in our worsted weight section here at the shop!

We’ll be closed for a Thanksgiving break from Wednesday, November 27 – Monday, December 2, reopening at our regular business hours on Tuesday, December 3, so if you’re anxious to get Drift at a discount, plan your visit accordingly. We hope to see you soon!

Shibui Sample of the Month: “Sakasama Jacket.”

October is here, and with it, a new Shibui Sample of the Month! We offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarn purchased for our featured sample til the end of the month.

October’s sample is the “Sakasama Jacket,” by Olga Buraya-Kefelian, a versatile garment that can be worn upside-down or right-side up. It’s knit with two strands of yarn held together throughout – the tweedy Shibui Pebble and fuzzy Silk Cloud.

This particular sample combines a blue-gray and a dark blue, for a unique marled fabric whose color shifts depending on the light – it’s tricky to photograph, and far more beautiful in person.

Shibui Sample of the Month: Lyon.

September is here, and with it, a new Shibui Sample of the Month! We offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarn purchased for our featured sample til the end of the month.

This month’s sample is “Lyon,” a versatile poncho knit with Shibui Pebble. Pebble is a lace weight blend of 48% recycled silk, 36% wool, and 16% cashmere, a carefully crafted blend of fibers that is soft and incredibly lightweight. Each of Pebble’s three plies is made of a separate fiber, so that you can see how each one takes the dye somewhat differently.

Come by the shop to before September 26th to see “Lyon” and get Shibui Pebble at 10% off to make one of your own!

Shibui Sample of the Month: Graphique.

August is here, and with it, a new Shibui Sample of the Month! We offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarn purchased for our featured sample til the end of the month.

This month’s sample is “Graphique,” a small striped kerchief knit with Shibui Fern. It’s worked in the round, from the center out, in a stripe pattern that makes concentric squares.

Fern is a sport weight organic cotton, with 232 yards on each 50 gram skein. Two skeins is plenty for this little project – just one in each color. Which two would you choose for a “Graphique” kerchief? It looks quite classic in this high-contrast combination, but I’d be interested to see a more subtle version, too.

Come by the shop to before August 25th to see “Graphique” and get Shibui Fern at 10% off to make one of your own!

Shibui Sample of the Month: Spectrum.

Happy to report that we’ve received a new Shibui Sample of the Month! We usually offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarns featured in our monthly sample, but during July, everything is 15% off – even better!

This month’s featured sample is “Spectrum,” by Shellie Anderson, a rectangular wrap with sheer stripes. The pattern is free when you purchase Shibui yarns for the project here at our shop. It offers instruction for a scarf size, as well, if it’s a slimmer accessory you’re after.

Two Shibui yarns are paired for this design: Rain, a dk weight cotton, and Silk Cloud, Shibui’s signature lace weight blend of mohair and silk.

Come by the shop to see this exquisite knit and start a “Spectrum” of your own before July 26th!

Shibui Sample of the Month: Gradient.

June is here, and with it, a new Shibui Sample of the Month! Shibui sends us a new sample to share with you every month, and we offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarn purchased for that featured sample while it’s here.

June’s Shibui Sample of the Month is “Gradient,” knit with four shades of Shibui Silk Cloud, a lace weight blend of silk and mohair. The pattern is free when you purchase the yarn from our shop.

In the spirit of the Shibui Mix concept, which encourages the combining of Shibui yarns two or three strands at a time, “Gradient” is worked with three strands of Silk Cloud held together. Periodically, one of those three strands is switched out for a different color, which makes a gentle transition from one color to the next.

Here are a few color combinations I came up with, but there are so many more possibilities – we have over 25 shades of Silk Cloud in stock!

Inspired to make a “Gradient” cowl of your own? I can’t wait to see what other color combinations you creative knitters will come up with. Look for Shibui Silk Cloud in the lace weight section here at the shop, and come by before June 23 to get it at 10% off. See you there!

Shibui Sample of the Month: Torrent.

May is here, and with it, a new Shibui Sample of the Month! We offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarn purchased for our featured sample until the end of the month.

This month’s sample is “Torrent,” a textured triangular shawlette knit on the bias. The pattern is available for free when you buy Shibui Rain here at our shop.

It’s made with two skeins of Shibui Rain, a DK weight mercerized cotton unlike any mercerized cotton we’ve seen. Its silky lustre and chainette construction set it apart from more traditional plied cottons, adding a bit of elasticity where plant fibers typically have none.

Come by the shop to before May 26th to try on “Torrent” and get Shibui Rain at 10% off to make one of your own!
