New this week is FERN by Shibui Knits. We don't carry many traditional "summer weight" yarns so when we do, you can bet we think it's worth it. A 100% organic cotton yarn brushed to downy softness, FERN is a matte cotton yarn yielding a lightweight fabric with impeccable drape. We've brought in all 10 of the beautiful spring/summer neutral colors. The palette is wearable and will be able to transition into Fall with no problem. One skein weighs in at 50 g with with 232 yds. in a skein.
Shibui calls this a sport weight yarn, although the yardage and thickness of the yarn suggest it is a fingering weight. Remember though, Shibui defines yarn gauge a bit differently than we are used to. Shibui determines the weight after knitting the yarn at various gauges to determine which gauge produces the fabric they like best. For FERN, this is 24 sts = 4″ on 4 US / 3.5 mm.
Checkout the new FERN Lookbook featuring the beautiful new patterns designed with the yarn. We'll send you a .pdf for Oasis, a beautiful, bias knit scarf with your purchase of 3 skeins or more of FERN. (please note: if you purchase the pattern on Ravelry we cannot refund your purchase. Purchase FERN from Yarn Culture and we will send you the .pdf)
I can't wait to get back in the shop and knit a swatch of FERN myself. How about you?
