Pebble and Silk Cloud are back!

We are very excited to announce that we now carry Pebble and Silk Cloud!
If you remember Shibui Pebble and Silk Cloud, you also know that Shibui stopped producing this yarn last year. Since then, Laura Zander, the owner of Madelinetosh, and Darcy Cameron, the founder of Shibui, have been working together to carry Darcy’s vision for Shibui Yarns forward while also making that vision work in the Madelinetosh world.

Produced at the same mill in Japan as the originals, Tosh Pebble and Tosh Silk Cloud are being spun and dyed to the exact specifications as their Shibui predecessors.

If these yarns are new to you, Pebble is a blend of 48% recycled silk, 36% fine merino wool and 16% cashmere which results in a yarn with a delicate texture and exquisite drape. The name “Pebble” refers to the yarn’s smoothness and subtle texture, reminiscent of the smooth stones found along a serene shoreline. Pebble is a versatile yarn that can be used alone for lightweight projects such as shawls, wraps and scarves, or held together with other yarns, such as Silk Cloud, to add a touch of luxury and depth.

The name “Silk Cloud” describes perfectly the yarn’s ethereal quality and softness. Made from 60% kid mohair and 40% silk, Silk Cloud is known for its glowing halo, lightweight feel and gentle drape, a wonderful choice for creating elegant garments and accessories.

The color palette of Pebble and Silk Cloud that I currently stock ranges from beautiful, muted tones to rich jewel-like hues. In the future, we will expand our range of Tosh Pebble and Tosh Silk Cloud into colors that have been hand-dyed by the artists at Madelinetosh. The possibilities for these new yarns are endless!
One pattern idea for Tosh Pebble is Lyon by Shibui Knits. It is a perfect summer knitting project. It features an easy to remember stockinette pattern; plus, you will enjoy the finished project anytime you are in overly airconditioned environments such as restaurants, grocery stores, offices, airplanes etc. Lyon can be worn as a scarf or a poncho. It is also free pattern with a Tosh Pebble yarn purchase.
Brighter Days by Melanie Berg is a beautiful pullover that is knitted with two strands of Tosh Silk Cloud held together to create a cozy fabric with incredible drape. Other knitters have knitted this pattern with a strand of Pebble and Silk Cloud held together. Melanie placed cheerful color accents at the yoke and asymmetrically on the sleeves for a pop of playfulness.
If you would like to knit a PettiteKnit pattern with this yarn, Friday Slipover V-Neck is a great option. You can create this stylish and versatile vest holding one strand of Tosh Pebble and one strand of Tosh Silk Cloud together. You decide if you want a contrasting color at the V and armholes or just one solid color.
Ossa by Shibui Knits is a light and flowy scarf that combines both Tosh Pebble and Tosh Silk Cloud. Sheer stripes combine with an airy fluid fabric to create a versatile accessory.
If you are thinking about getting a start on holiday knitting, Limestone by Lena Skvagerson is a brand-new pattern designed for two strands of Tosh Pebble held together. (Notice the beautiful detail Lena used at the top of the hat.)
