Breath in, warm embrace / Nest enfolds / I am still, I am safe. The intriguing texture of Shibui Nest has a gravitational pull that our fingers cannot resist! At its core, DK-weight Nest has a soft wool-and-alpaca strand. This, in turn, is wrapped with thin, contrasting, criss-crossing strands of fine wool. The difference in tension between the inner and outer strands gives this yarn a wee wave. As a result, Nest is bouncy, squishy, so soft and warm—and each color has a gentle marl effect.
