Shibui's newest fiber, Birch, is a light sport weight extrafine merino yarn. The fineness of the fiber makes Birch as soft as cashmere at a fraction of the price. A single-ply construction gives Birch great stitch definition so it shines in fancy stitchwork as well as plain stockinette and garter. Birch comes in a palette of easy-to-wear neutrals and saturated brights.
Birch plays well on its own, and is perfectly lovely carried with any of Shibui's other mixable fibers.
