Shibui Knits Rain

The stunning trunk show featuring Shibui Knits Rain is still in the shop this week, and these pieces are really inspiring.
Rain is a chained cotton, so the yarn itself looks a bit like a knitted cord. This gives it particularly lovely drape and movement. You can see the interesting construction in the close up of the Brick shade, one of my favorites.
Between the drape, the sheen, and the always-classy Shibui Knits colorways, you really cannot go wrong. If you have a sensitivity to animal fibers or would like to work with a cotton for the warmer months, this is a truly luxurious choice.

I'm not sure how long we will have the trunk show, but the yarn will be with us all summer. Pop in and take a look at these pieces, and start thinking about warm weather knits!
