    great yarn - perfect for next-to-skin

    I'm using this for a moebius shawl. The project has been tossed around for a couple of years. The yarn felts with work (it's about 1/2 silk) so I can do spit-joins but it hasn't compacted while I've made it wait.

    The pattern is a garter stitch with simple lace at intervals (from a Cat Bordhi pattern). Although a single, it shows the stitches well. I find it easy to knit (I'm using a size 7 Addi Turbo Lace needle). The yarn does not have a tendency to split; it flows easily through my fingers and around the needles. I like the way its multi colors display; there is no striping (an effect I didn't want), and the "pooling" is small - maybe a two-row "pool" (I like pooling, but only on the right project and this isn't it).

    I fully intend to work with it again. I think a new knitter could use it, as I don't find it takes any particular consideration.

    The only "con" (and I don't think of it that way) is that I don't think I'd use it for a felting project - but there are plenty of yarns to use for felting and, given the next-to-skin softness of this yarn, I would rather use it for shawls, hats, scarves, and perhaps sweaters.

    The color I purchased was very nice, but MUCH different from what I expected from the picture! I was a bit disappointed in the feel....it is soft, but no where near as soft as I had expected from a yarn with this much silk! The stitch definition is OK, but not great.

        Comments about Malabrigo Silky Merino:

        I ordered this yarn way back in January and really forgot about it. Luckily, Webs didn't forget. I decided to knit a sweater and needed more yarn than I originally ordered and WEBS delivered. Thank you. The yarn is a dream to knit.

          I have ALS and can barely knit. I'm still able to knit scarves. I. Thankful for that. I have lost a lot of things I love to do so this is one that I treasure . I love Malibrigo yarn. It's so soft and warm and the colors are vivid! Love it! Carol

              Good grief I love Malabrigo. I especially love the sheen this gets in the sunshine. "dreamy" and "luxurious" are not false advertising.

                      I bought 5 skeins. 3 were a tangled mess. I had to throw one of them out. The other 2 took between 1-2 hours to untangle. When I get my wool I just want to knit. A shame because the wool itself is beautiful - it feels more silky then wooly. Good for children, or adults, who don't like itchy wool.

                              I really enjoyed knitting with this Silky Merino. It was so soft and I was always excited about getting back to my knitting. The price isn't too bad either.
