New at My Sister Knits: Shibui Knits Colors and Love+Leche Bars

Shibui Knits’ Two New Colorways

My Sister Knits has the eagerly awaited sumptuous new Shibui Knits colorways!  Shibui Knits yarns and patterns are known for their elegance and classic sophistication.  Their yarns are unique in the way they are designed to be used singly or together, creating custom fabrics.

One of the new Shibui Knits colorways is Dusk, a luscious deep lavender that makes you think of the light right before the sun sets.  Or our purple mountain majesties that we love in Colorado!

It’s so interesting to see the ways the different fibers take the dye!

Look at the sheen of the ones with silk:  Silk Cloud, Lunar, and Staccato.

Pebble has recycled silk and Echo has silk noil, which is the short fibers left over from spinning.  Both of those silks are rough and not shiny and, therefore, have a completely different look.

Birch is merino only.  Drift is merino and cashmere.  Cima and Maai both have merino and alpaca.  We invite you to come in and see the differences in person!

Love + Leche Lotion Bars

These bars are made by hand in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Using only local beeswax, almond oil, coconut oil, and local organic calendula flowers, the bars have natural healing qualities.  Scented with plant based essential oils, they offer an immediate aromatherapy boost!

Love and Leche

To use, hold the bar in your hands and rub onto your skin.  The heat from your hands will melt the natural oils which will quickly absorb into your skin and even your chapped lips!  It’s quite difficult to decide whether to get the charming larger bar made with the sheep mold or the smaller, purse sized one with the bee.  Hmmm, maybe one of each is called for, especially as we head into winter!  We have a tester for you to try when you come to the shop!
