The day a new yarn-baby has been pushed out into this great big world for us to caress and to love.... the Maai Yarn of Shibui has just been released!!!!
It is this soft and beautiful!
The Maai is made in a fine and soft chain construction out of 70% super baby alpaca and 30% merino. When knitted up the chain becomes invisible, but it allows the yarn to stay soft and springy, while the entrapped air in the chain provides even more warmth than the alpace/merino mix would give you in a traditional twisted yarn construction.
The idea of mixing yarn bases is very popular with Shibui and by looking at all the different hues and textures that one gets in the same colour, I totally understand why!
A little present from me and Shibui!
To make the whole thing a little more fun I thought of a little game: You just need to continue the sentence of the one person that commented before you. It can be completely irrelevant or stupid, whatever you like. Hopefully we get one extra long ridiculous sentence written by all of us in the end...
... and 2 skeins in the colour "Poppy" and one skein in the colour "Blueprint" will be sent out to three different destinations each, when the time is up.
The winners will be drawn by a random generator 2 days after this post goes live and I will announce the winner at the bottom of this little article when the moment has come!
(I will also write an email to the winners to ask about postal addresses - which can be anywhere in the world - no restrictions!).
Who will be the first to start the sentence???
The three winners have been drawn!!!!
(I used a random generator for this difficult task... )
Thank you everybody for playing!!!
The long sentence you guys wrote is really fun, sometimes very poetic and quite dreamy... with unicorns and elephants making unexpected appearances!
I loved reading through it and every new comment made me smile!!!!
I couldn't wish for more inspired readers!!!!!
I will write an email to each of the winners right now, to ask about where to send the yarn!!!
