New in our Online Store & On SALE

Soft as a buby's toosh, Shibui Silk Cloud is an exquisite blend of glossy silk and wispy kid mohair, unified in a luminous lace weight yarn. Silk Cloud can be knit alone for gossamer-light lace projects, or held alongside any Shibui yarn to add a soft halo and subtle glow (the shine of the silk peeps out through the soft, angelic mohair). There are many Silk and Kid Mohair blends on the market, but this one is a truly beautiful yarn to work with and wear.
