With is what I treated myself with when lamenting my lack of orange yarn.
Its a new try for me Shibui sock. I have used the Shibui silk bloom before and found it to be lovely so thought I'd give one of their other yarns a whirl. I have balled all three skeins now ( by hand ) and am brewing ideas.
This yarn came from the wool shack the colour ways are Spectrum - 51301, on top. Rappongi - 4103, bottom right and 50's kitchen - 151 at the left. the 50's kitchen is destined to be something I can wear, a scarf or shawl most likely, I adore the colours in it.
Happy Saturday!. x

I can't wait to see what you make with these Tammy! Lovely yarns!ReplyDelete
thanks Sheree, it certainly brightened my day when these arrived :) xDelete
All the Shibui yarn I've tried is lovely. I've used the sock yarn and enjoyed it. I did find two knots in one skein. Having had many more in Noro, I wasn't too fussed but casually mentioned it in a discussion of knots on a Ravelry group unrelated to anything Shibui. Shibui obviously monitor groups and search on their name. I had an email and a replacement in a matter of days.ReplyDelete
I haven't bought anything from the Wool Shack in years. Did you know that Renae at Suzy Hausfrau in your city also sells a range of Shibui. I've bought quite a lot. Free shipping over $75.
Sorry, that's free delivery in Australia regardless of total and a discount of 10% on purchases over $75. I should have checked first. Great friendly service.Delete
Hi Jan, yes I got my shi bui silk cloud and some linen from Suzy Huasfrau, it was there that I got my first Holst Garn too, I agree the service is lovely and she has a great social media presence too. I am impressed that you got such awesome unexpected service from Shibui too! I do like to deal with businesses who actually value their customers and stand behind their product with conviction. xDelete
