SHIBUI KNITS Maai
This superb DK yarn, full of lightness and texture, is ideal for cosy jumpers and accessories alike. The special chain construction blends 70% superbaby alpaca with merino to produce a gloriously soft and springy yarn that offers a gentle drape. The stitch definition with Maai is superb, and produces a smooth stocking stitch as well as clearly defined cables and twists.
Maai is stunning by itself but also works well when held double with Shibui’s other yarns, including flecked Pebble for a contemporary textured twist or the lightweight Cima to add structure to garments.Technical information
