      I knitted the State Street Cowl with this yarn (actually.... I knitted 7 of them... for Christmas gifts!) It was a fantastic choice for yarn as it's very soft, squishy, and warm! I have gotten so many compliments on the cowls! The Malabrigo chunky yarn is dyed so beautifully and comes in a nice range of colors. It also feels amazing to knit with (which is a must!) *FYI - For anyone making this cowl w/ Malabrigo chunky: I had to knit fewer rows of ribbing because there wasn't enough yarn to do the complete pattern. It still looks amazing!

              My only negative about this yarn is that the color transition between skeins is not always smooth

                  I purchased two skeins of this in different colors to knit some hats for Christmas. They knit up fast and easy. Both were super warm too. I would use this again.

                        Excellent for hats and other garments as it is soft and non-itchy. My fussy kids happily wear their hats knit with Malabrigo. Great colors too

                          This yarn in natural quickly knitted up into a gorgeous prayer shawl! I used size 11 bamboo needles.

                          Super soft chunky yarn that flows through your hands with ease. Like other malabrigo yarns, it will pill faster than many other yarns but the soft as a cloud fiber is well worth that sacrifice. A simple pattern and this soft yarn on large needles is a perfect way to relax between complicated pattern.
