What is the color of the wind? This Zen koan—a poetic question or statement used in Zen meditation—graces the label of this fluid blend of linen and silk from Shibui. Nearly paradoxical, this fingering-weight yarn is smooth, delicate, and almost weightless—yet has such wonderful strength and integrity! Exquisite on its own, Koan beautifully blends with the rest of Shibui’s mixable yarn family and brings a gentle, silky luster to its well-loved color palette.
