Shibui Knits Maai
Shibui Knits brings us another classic luxury. Maai (meaning "interval, break or pause" in Japanese) combines the finest of alpacas and Merino wool with a springy chainette construction creating a yarn that is super soft, versatile and elastic: perfect for next-to-skin wearables.
This yarn knits up plush at a variety of stitch gauges, retaining stitch definition for plump cables and stitch patterns. In Stockinette stitch, it creates a fabric with a soft texture and bloom. Imagine - a light, bouncy alpaca based yarn that won't grow or become misshapen.
