    Comments about Shibui Silk Cloud:

    I used this yarn alone to knit scarves for my friends for Christmas. I made 12 of them using size 10 needles and a lace pattern in a 'gifts to knit book". They all loved them, as I do the two I made for myself. I went to a demo at a local yarn store and learned how this yarn can be combined with another sock or sport weight yarn. I have made 3 hats and am currently crocheting a sweater for my daughter using Silk Cloud and Cascade Forest Hill, a wool silk fingering weight yarn. The finished product is as soft as a cloud. The only bad thing about this yarn is pulling out already crocheted or knitted rows. It sticks together and ripping out is really awful. So DON'T MAKE MISTAKES.

      Comments about Shibui Silk Cloud:

      I always enjoy knitting with Sibui products. Excellent quality and unbeatable luster and drape. This gossamer kid mohair and silk yarn is easy to work with as mohair character yarns go....frogging is not easy, but otherwise it is a dream. It is great to knit with on its own, with single or multiple strands, or in combination with other yarns. I am using it with 1strand of Rowan Fine Art to make a cardigan style jacket.
      The color and texture is gorgeous....silky and not itchy to me, with little shedding. I recommend using wooden or bamboo needles to keep silky yarn from slipping while knitting.

            I used the gradient scarf pattern but decided I would have a hard time finishing in the seed stitch so I used a plain garter stitch. This yarn is so fabulous that it still looks wonderful. The colors worked so well together, even after ordering on the net and not being sure of the shades. This is pretty pricey yarn but well worth it.

              Everyone says their mohair yarns are soft but this one really is. The silk content adds a special sheen and the mohair brings a nice halo. Soft on my hands and face.

                This is my favorite mohair yarn. It gives very special look when added to any yarn. The quality is perfectt, soft and airy. I am sure I will use this yarn agai and again in my projects- as a solo yarn perfect for crochet or together with really warm yarn that misses the look. Excellent product!

                      Comments about Shibui Silk Cloud:

                      I knit my aunt a wide shawl with a log cabin type pattern, used lots of colors, she is also and artist and she loved it--the softness and the range of colors were her favorite part.
                      I have made many hats and caps with this yarn, it knits up wonderfully and looks great.
                      Easy to maintain the garments as well.
                      I highly recommend this yarn to anyone looking for a fine lace weight yarn with many color options to choose from.

                      The tones of the colors are beautiful. And unlike other lace weights, it has enough body to be fairly easy to knit.
