Shibui is known for their supremely soft yarns, and Cima is no exception. This downy lace 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.

This is another fabulous Shibui yarn. It is soft with a soft glow , yet sturdy, for a lace weight yarn with plenty of stitch definition and drape. It can be used single for lace or used multiply stranded for sweaters etc. it is a perfect yarn to couple with another yarn such as Shibui Pebble for a denser fabric such as gloves, hats and sweaters. I am using it along with Pebble to knit a sweater. It is a favorite and easy to work with yarn.

not all that soft

              Lovely, soft yarn. I made a lacy shawl for a wedding. This yarn has a natural stretch, bounce, and it doesn't separate into plys as you knit, even when frogging back and redoing.

                I bought Cima to make the Shibui scarf and fell in love. The yarn is so soft yet has good structure. It feels great while knitting and made up into a scarf you love to have around your face. I think this yarn would also be great for sweaters.

                      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.
