We have Shibui's newest yarn in stock

We are thrilled to be able to announce to you that Shibui has created yet another new yarn: Maai.  It is as wonderful as the others!  And just the thing for warm snuggly soft winter knits.Pronounced (mah-ha-ee) this DK weight chained yarn was named for the Japanese word for break or pause.  We love the idea of taking a break from daily routines to steal a few moments of indulgent stitching.  This yarn will be as delicious to work with as it will be to finally wear. photo 2Maai is an entirely luxurious blend of 70% superbaby alpaca and 30% merino.The chainette construction adds volume without weight.  The yarn will have more structure you might expect from a yarn with such a high alpaca content.  So you'll be enveloped by light, cushiony knits with incredible softness - perfect for next-to-skin garments and accessories. photo 1The chainette structure will also contribute defined stitches with a soft hand, perfect for lush cables, and sumptuous stockinette.  And with the eye-catching Shibui spectrum of colors, there is much to be excited about.These 50 gram skeins include 170 yards of yarn.  We would love to help you chose a perfect pattern to play with.  We hope that you can visit us and these beautiful skeins while our selection is robust.  See you soon!
