    Shibui Cima

    Shibui is known for their supremely soft yarns, and Cima is no exception. This downy fingering weight yarn is two plies of fine baby alpaca and merino wool, with a little shine and very subtle halo. Cima will knit or crochet up into a smooth, light fabric with excellent stitch definition or a gauzy lace project. You can work single, double or triple strands of Cima, or hold it with another yarn for a unique textural blend. Whatever you dream up, Cima will give it a gorgeous soft feel and a defined look. Made in Peru.

              Comments about Shibui Cima:

              This yarn is used for a double knitting cowl. I am taking a class at the end of March so I haven't actually worked with this yarn, but it looks and feel like it will be easy to knit with. Only con: The nude color is more pink than I thought it would be from the website.

                Comments about Shibui Cima:

                I wanted to use Cima for a lace scarf but I found it to be much too scratchy to wear next to the neck. Since I'm not fond of knitting socks I may trade this yarn on Ravelry.

                    It must be a popular item because I did not receive it for some time due to stocking
