Collection: Shibui Knits

Knitnstitch has the special honour and delight to bring to you this beautiful collection of highest quality sophisticated yarns to explore and enjoy

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. Faced with the limitations of yarn from big-brand companies, she started her own label, bringing yarn of the highest quality to small, independent stores like her own. Shibui Knits has since grown to represent timeless sophistication in local yarn stores worldwide. Today, we continue to be grounded in the concept of simplicity well executed, with loving attention to detail.
