Shibui Nest

This lovely blend of merino and alpaca (75/25) has an interesting construction - the singles is encased in a sort of "mesh cage" which gives it both a tweedy look and a bit of texture.

As usual, Shibui offers elegant pattern support for this yarn. I love the long cardigan - think that would become a wardrobe staple! And the cowl below is a free pattern that uses 1 color of Nest with 3 colors of Silk Cloud for a gradient look.

Each skein of nest features 175 yards and it is recommended knit at 5-5.5 on its own.

For now, I'm stocking 2 neutrals (ivory and tar), a deep blue (dusk) and the color of the season and store favorite, Pollen

Yarn Price: $18.99/sk
