A buzz about Shibui Pebble

Theresa and Kate have both been knitting with Shibui Pebble and can't say enough about it.  This light fingering yarn creates a deliciously soft and comforting fabric when knit with two strands held double.Kate just pulled this version of Natsumi off the blocking boards. natsumi1This beautiful boxy cabled pull over is knit side to side and Kate just loved working on the project.  The yarn was a pleasure to knit with, and the finished sweater is going to be one of her favorites this fall.Pebble has been created with a blend of three favorite fibers: cashmere, fine merino, and recycled silk.  This blend creates a tweedy effect. Separate plies of each fiber retain their distinctive characteristics, but blend into a beautifully cohesive yarn flecked with complex tonal colors.And one of our favorite designers must be in love with it as well, because Julie Hoover released a new collection of four patterns this week that are all designed to be knit up with this lovely yarn.  We encourage you to take a closer look at Hart, Cohle, Lange, and Leigh.We have an eye-catching selection of Shibui Pebble in stock at the shop in sweater quantities for you to choose from. pebble2Even Molly is excited about it!  Do you have a pattern in mind for this beautiful yarn?
