On a visit to Tokyo’s Ginza market in 2004, Darcy Cameron picked up a handwoven bag dyed with persimmons. She loved the bag’s pure simplicity, described by her Japanese friend as “very shibui,” or “elegant with a touch of bitterness.” This inspired an enduring aesthetic. Shibui Knits was born in 2007, in the basement of Darcy’s yarn store in Portland, Oregon. She started her own label, bringing yarn of the highest quality to small, independent shops like her own. Shibui Knits is known for timeless, sophisticated designs—executed well, with loving attention to detail. All Shibui Knits yarns are designed to become unique, luxury fabrics in a coordinated palette that's made for mixing. Shibui strives to elevate your wardrobe with modern, elegant garments of lasting style.
We love Shibui Knits yarns because they are simply delightful to hold in your hands. The feeling of the strands passing through your fingers is luxurious, knitting and crocheting with them is akin to reading a good book that you almost don't want to end. We carry several of their mix and match yarns, including: Shibui, Nest, Pebble, Cima and SIlk Cloud.
