Peak from Shibui is a unique ribbed hat and scarf set. The Peak Scarf, a study in asymmetry, is anything but a traditional shawl. Its modern shape and transfer ribs, articulated by a twisted stitch, create a versatile accessory that can be styled a number of ways.
Quirky and clever, the Peak hat proves that details make the design. A face-framing border of twisted rib is balanced by the loopy, innovative top detail; grafting is the secret to the interesting construction. Pebble held double creates a firm yet malleable fabric, and the recycled silk, fine merino, and cashmere blend make it a delight to wear next to your skin.
