Malabrigo Worsted

Hand Dyed incredible soft Merino wool. With the subtle variations in color and texture only hand dyed yarns have and all the sensuality of a good handspun yarn.

Malabrigo Worsted is a gorgeous, pure merino wool. Malabrigo is unbelievable - the colors are spectactular, the feel is incredibly soft. You won't believe how amazing Malabrigo is until you feel it!

Note: As with all hand-dyed yarns, colors vary from dye lot to dye lot. The yarn color you receive may look different than the color pictured below, and the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Please note: Malabrigo Worsted is produced in dye lots of 10. Any order for more than 10 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

I fully concur with all the previous reviewers, and just add a few lines here on the felting quality of this yarn. Knitting it, initially, you're struck by how soft and pleasant this yarn is, it's beautiful drape, and luxurious feel. I just happened to have this pattern for a felted hat, so I wanted to give it a go, to see if I can figure it out, and if this yarn works well for felting. It took a few rather aggressive rounds in the washer and dryer before the hat had shrunk to its intended size, but what a nice hat it is! The softness of the yarn carried beautifully through, and the colors blended well. There are easier yarns that felt much more willingly, I'm sure, but if you want to add softness and delightful hand-dyed colors to your project, this is where I'd start.

This yarn is incredibly soft but the pilling and shedding was excessive. I returned it after knitting the back of a sweater. This knitted piece almost appeared matted. I have seen pictures of the knitted garments in this wool and the amount of pilling was dramatic so this was not an isolated case. Best use is for felting

      Comments about Malabrigo Worsted:

      This yarn has varying thickness from thin to quite bulky in places. It doesn't matter in the pattern I am using it for, but might for others. It is best for stitch patterns that emphasize texture. It is very soft and the color shades of dark violet are very attractive.

          Comments about Malabrigo Worsted:

          I bought a linen stitch scarf kit from another source that contained Malabrigo Worsted Merino. I liked the yarn very much, but found the palette in the kit wanting so I searched the Internet for more colors. This yarn has a lovely hand and beautiful colors. As I worked with it I started to think of other projects for it that require a soft hand: toddler sweaters, hats, other scarves. I design many of the items I knit and redesign most of the patterns I use so I was happy to find a versatile and good quality merino yarn. Most of the knitters I know can always think of improvements!

              This worsted yarn has great stitch definition, but it does get fuzzy (felts) easily. Still, it's so warm and versatile. I've used it for many projects, and will continue!

                Malabrigo is my favorite yarn. it works for me exspecially the way it's dyed..after knitting it up I just love the way it looks and feel, looks and warmth it gives.

                Service and delivery comments:

                my delivery was prompt and in good condition...Dont have customers yet just my children and they have spread the word with the other children. Now i'm going to start charging them for what they want so they can see how much it cost for handmade expensive yarn.
                i have enjoyed this feed back....

                  This was my 1st experience in buying yarn on line. The result was beyond my expectations. My yarn arrived in a timely manner. The quality of the yarn was wonderful. The malibrigo worsted yarn is a dream to knit with and the color variation is subtle enough to notice but doesn't take away from the details in cable patterns. I love it and will definitely order more. Yarn.com has become my favorite yarn "shop".
