The Design

"Understated sophistication."

Simple, sleek, and structured—’architectonic!’—Echelon is a generous wrap designed by Sandy Barnes for Shibui. Long, vertical welts give an understated, yet sophisticated look to the smooth fields of stockinette in this classic, rectangle wrap.

Echelon was knit in two stunning yarns from Shibui—silky stand-by Silk Cloud and utterly unique Vine! Shibui Vine is a thin ribbon of washed paper, criss-crossed with strands of a silk-and-cotton blend. When combined with lace-weight, mohair-and-silk blend, Silk Cloud, the fabric of this wrap is as light as a leaf, soft as a cloud—and simply fascinating.
