Stir it up with Shibui this Summer - June 11, 2015

by Hill Country Weavers June 10, 2015

There is something about linen...

In the skein, linen yarn looks flat and feels stiff. But when knit into a garment and washed, the stiffness disappears and it takes on a gentle sheen. When combined with other fibers like silk and cotton, linen adopts their characteristics, but adds its strength and resilience. The result is a garment that doesn’t droop and will keep you looking cool and crisp in our Central Texas humidity.

If you’re planning a vacation this summer to cooler climates, consider Mix No 13 from Anne Lena Mattison. This casual pullover has a lattice lace pattern that will keep you cool whatever the temperature. Knit in Shibui's Linen yarn, you’ll love the loose fit that covers you without leaving you feeling confined. 
If you're looking for the perfect summer tank look at Slope, the sleeveless top from Shibui designer Shelli Anderson. The curved hemline makes this simple top interesting to wear and to knit. In Shibui’s linen, silk and wool yarn, Twig, Slope will take you through this summer’s heat with ease. And Twig’s color palette goes from neutrals to brights, so there is a color choice that is perfect for everyone.

If you want to see these garments, along with more from Shibui, join us on Sunday, June 14, from 11am to 2pm for a special Trunk Show. 

Get inspired with our good friend, the talented Stephanie Winslow, who will help you select the perfect shibui yarn mix for your next project.
