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.

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:

      I am a Celtic knitter and have chosen to use the gorgeous colors of the Malabrigo yarns for winter accesories. The yarn has worked up beautifully in some of the most complicated knots and designs. I am thrilled by the softness of the yarn and must encourage anyone who thinks they are allergic to wool to give it a try. I never could have done this before. This yarn is tops. Had a little trouble with one skein of the blue ombre breaking, but the rest have been top notch!

        Comments about Malabrigo Worsted:

        I ordered Violettas. The color as it appears on the website is much lighter and more varigated. The actual yarn is almost entirely dark purple, significantly different and not suitable for the cable project I was planning. I think given the discrepancy I will only buy Malabrigo in person in the future. That being said, the order was correctly filled, and Webs kindly offered a refund which I opted not to take. I'll just make something different. Disappointing all in all.

          Malabrigo worsted has always been my favorite yarn. Beautiful texture, knits up very nicely. I would highly recommend this yarn to anyone who is thinking about giving it a try. Gorgeous colors as well.

          I have no idea how Webs does it, but I always seem to get my yarn the day after I place my order. Super fast delivery no matter what time of year.

              Comments about Malabrigo Worsted:

              This was a gift for someone else, but it is a special yarn I like to share with others. All weights are good, especially sock. Uneven dye, but this is considered a specialty of this yarn. I think it knits up great, has a nice touch and is perfectly rustic (not too rough) for your winter accessories, socks and sweaters if you live in a cold climate.
