When this new fiber from Shibui entered our orbit, it nearly eclipsed all others. Our imagination ran wild with ideas… Oh, the lace work! What would it look like held double? And just how perfectly would it combine with other yarns? Sigh.
This lovely lace-weight is spun from a smooth blend of extra fine merino and mulberry silk. It flows across your needles like a dream and knits into an airy, yet strong, fabric. And Shibui’s familiar, rich colors take on the soft shimmer of a slim crescent moon. We can certainly see how it got its name—Lunar.
