to be worn with +2-3" ease

Last month we welcomed Shibui Birch to our shelves and our needles, along with an incredible collection of fall/winter designs by Shellie Anderson. Birch is a single-ply extra fine merino that radiates softness, and excels at versatility. In this collection alone you can find it held singly, held double, or used in combination with other Shibui yarns for stunning effects.

Zona, above, combines Cima with Birch for a subtle but beautifully textural fabric at a DK weight gauge. This modern vest is an ideal layering piece for year round wear, with thoughtful details like a turned hem and dolman sleeves.

Fresco Pullover
Finished Bust: 42 (44, 46, 48, 50, 53, 58)"
to be worn with +7-9" ease
Shibui Birch: 6 (6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8) skeins
shown in bordeaux

Fresco is your favorite sweatshirt turned into a chic, handknit sweater. With delightful attention to detail, Shellie Anderson has created a garment that is easy to wear and looks terrific. Garter stitch while holding Birch double creates a plush, squashy, wearable fabric that also knits up quickly.

Odessa Boxy Pullover
Finished Bust: 52 (54, 56, 58, 60, 64, 68)"
to be worn with +18-20" ease
Shibui Pebble: 4 (5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6) skeins
Shibui Birch: 4 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5) skeins
shown in tar

Odessa is a statement piece for your fall wardrobe. Short rows at the hem create the fun hi-lo shape that gives definition to this oversize pullover. The addition of Pebble to Birch results in a luxury tweed with rich depth of color, and an easy layering fabric.

Icon Colorblock Wrap
Finished Size: 16" width & 63" length
Shibui Birch: 3 skeins of Color A, 1 skein each of Colors B & C
shown in Abyss (A), Tar (B), & Ash (C)

Birch held alone is an incredibly soft, light fabric that begs to be draped around your shoulders. The striking colorplay of the triangular wedges in Icon make a bold statement.
