Shibui Pebble Version:
“Tweedy look but cashmere touch!”
Knit in two colors, the two layers of these soft, scrunchy cuffs are designed like our Inside Outside Cowl and can be pulled through for infinite variation—from color tipped to color blocked to completely reversed. Pick two colors and give these arm warmers your personal touch!

We knit the Reversible Arm Warmers in Shibui’s delightful Pebble—a lace-weight blend of recycled silk, merino wool, and cashmere. With a tweedy look but a cashmere touch, Pebble adds a bit of textural interest and soft warmth to the double layers of your cuffs.
