Slouchy Pullover Using Shibui Silk Cloud
We wanted a relaxed weekend sweater that was oversized, yet supremely lightweight. This huggable pullover is what we came up with! The flattering, soft ‘V’ neckline and a short-row shaped cuffs keep the generous scale from becoming overwhelming.
We held six (yep, six!) strands—two strands each of three different colors—of Shibui Silk Cloud together to give this sweater a sheer, pretty, silky appeal. Silk Cloud is a lace-weight blend with a core of silk (a significant 40%!). This floaty fiber, sextupled(!), creates an airy, smooth fabric—and the marling of three different colors adds a vibrant, spectacular depth.
