      I used the Malabrigo Mecha to make a very soft, very warm fall vest. It knits up very nicely with good weight and texture. The dye between the same lot numbers were off a bit, but not terribly noticable to anyone that wasn't a knitter. I wish the yardage could have been more generous, as I don't like to wind yard much :-). Overall, this yarn is yummy, and I would definitely buy it again for another project.

      The yarn needed to be unwound by hand. The hank strands were so horribly crisscrossed and inter-laced that two people were required to do this. One hank had yarn that had been severed in the middle, so that there were 2 balls instead of one. Totally unexpected in an otherwise very nice yarn to work with.

        I'm about 5 inches into an afgan and not only is it going quickly, but the piece is showing little sign of being roughed up.

              Comments about Malabrigo Mecha:

              the best part of this yarn is that you never know what color is going to show up next. I'm knitting an afghan for my cousin - it's just going to be stripes in lots of beautiful colors and textures. The main colors are grey and cream, both solid and combos, but she wanted a pop of corral - this has cream and red and corral and it sparkles.

              Nothing bad to say.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was amazing. I think I got it in 3 days. It arrived in perfect condition.

              I will definitely be ordering from you again!

                Comments about Malabrigo Mecha:

                I don't knit with bulky yarn often, but Mecha is a great weight for winter projects--bulky enough to knit up quickly, but not so bulky that it's awkward. Like all Malabrigo yarns, it's so soft that you just want to curl up in it, and the colorways are gorgeous. I'm a Mal junkie, so I might be biased, but I love this stuff!

                  Comments about Malabrigo Mecha:

                  I made a hat and bulky gloves with this yarn. It is spectacular to look at! The gloves were plain so the yarn takes center stage, yet even though the hat had a lace pattern, the color still held its own and didn't compete with the pattern or overwhelm it.

                    This yarn is so very beautiful. Works up perfectly and the colors are so rich! I enjoy working with it very much and it is a very solid yarn. No thin here. Perfect yarn for special projects which I gift and sell.

                    Comments about Malabrigo Mecha:

                    Beautiful yarn but 2 of the 4 skeins I've used have had breaks in the yarn that have been tied in knots. This makes for more ends to weave into the project.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery was prompt but not all products purchased were available so a quarter of my purchase was not shipped. This made the shipping cost per skien higher and less worthwhile. Also, there were unexpected duty costs. The savings from buying here were eroded. Not sure it's worth it to ship across the border but still a good deal if you're picking it up in the States.

                        I used 3 skeins of the Malabrigo Mecha with a #13 needle to make a big beautiful seed stitch cowl for my daughter. I had no problems with shading, perhaps due to the stitch. It is beautiful and soft and just what she wanted.
