Cima

Cima

Cima by Shibui Knits is spun from the finest baby alpaca and merino. Cima is a springy lace weight yarn that combines sharp stitch definition with creamy softness. Held single, double, or triple, Cima creates smooth fabrics with clean lines, perfect for modern garments. Try Cima on its own for airy lace pieces, or combine it with a coordinating Shibui yarn to create your ultimate blend.
Dune

Shibui's Dune yarn is a gorgeous combination of camel, alpaca and silk fibers in a lovely plied textured. Add Dune to your next Shibui Mix project or use Dune alone. The prominence of baby camel entwined with the sheen of silk forms a deeply hued yarn, that knits into a rich fabric - one that undulates in rhythm to the earth.

Linen
Shibui Linen is comprised of a fine linen fiber weaved into a unique chain-ply structure. This amazing Shibui yarn is breezy, light, and airy for garments that become softer with every wear. Although Shibui Linen is generally known as a soft linen yarn for knitting, it can also be used for heavier garments when several colors are blended together for a “Shibui Mix.” An array of vibrant and classic colors brings this linen yarn to life and provides a fresh and unique spin on this amazing fiber.
Pebble
Shibui Pebble is a trio of scrumptious fibers; cashmere, fine merino, & recycled silk, spun into a tweedy mix. Separate plies of each fiber retain their distinctive characteristics, but blend into a unique yarn speckled with deep tonal colors. Perfect for colorwork, lace, and an innumerable variety of garments, Pebble is light and irresistibly soft. Try Pebble doubled or even tripled to match any gauge and imbue any project with its luscious appeal to the eye and to the touch. Pebble adds great texture to your next "Shibui Mix" yarn project!
Silk Cloud
Silk Cloud by Shibui is well named for its glossy silk & wispy kid mohair fibers uniting in this luminous lace weight yarn. Silk Cloud can be knit alone for incredibly light lace projects, or held alongside any Shibui Knits yarns to add a soft glow with lots of texture.
Reed

Reed by Shibui is a soft and smooth 100% linen chainette fingering weight yarn with a subtle sheen that works up with a lovely drape for warm weather garments and accessories.

Staccato
Shibui Staccato combines fine merino with silk for this luxurious fingering weight Shibui yarn to mix with other shibui yarns for truly spectacular knitted fabric. Combine Staccato with Shibui Pebble and Silk Cloud for a textured halo knitted effect. The silk provides just a hint of sheen and your stitch pattern will pop! Shibui Staccato fingering yarn is available in trendy bright and neutral colors to mix together for transitional garments.
