    Malabrigo Lace

    If you enjoy lace knitting, you've got to try Malabrigo Lace, a gorgeous, pure merino wool. Spun from the finest merino wool, this yarn comes from sheep bred for generations by ranchers in the northern part of Uruguay, where the ideal climate for this breed is found. When you experience Malabrigo Lace, you connect with a special place of the world. The colors are spectactular, the feel of the yarn is incredibly soft. You won't believe how amazing it is until you feel it! One hank is all you need to make a great scarf.

    Please note: Malabrigo Lace is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

      This was my first Malabrigo and my first lace-weight yarn - and it has completely raised my standards. It's soft and luxurious without being overbearing or itchy - and best of all, it's actually warm! And by far, Malabrigo has some of the best colors around, for the absolute best price. It's wonderful.

      Easily the most disappointing yarn I have worked with. Ever. Yes, it is incredibly soft. If this is the only criterion to you, go with it but: The first of my skeins had 7 knots, the second 16. There were multiple areas where the yarn was not spun even (uneven as in changes from lace weight to almost bulky!), which was contrasted by extremely thin areas. The shawl that I made with it looks as it was attacked by moths! To add to the list of wonderful attributes, the yarn is extremely sticky which makes winding a real treat. I highly recommend this yarn for people looking for a quick felting project as it is readily doing so while knitted. No, I do not suffer from 'hot' hands.

      Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

      I'm using this wool to make a cowl for a friend -- I've started next year's Christmas present list. This wool will be soft and warm and will drape beautifully. I'm enjoying working with it and will definitely use it again.

      BEAUTIFUL!!!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Quick delivery. Produce looked exactly right.

          Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

          Impossible to wind into a ball without breaking it several times. Much of it was wasted in a tangled mess that couldn't be rectified. I was quite disgusted with the product and will not buy Malabrigo Lace again, I assure you.

          beautiful colors but very thin yarn

                This is beautiful yarn but extremely thin. I used crochet hook H for a scarf and don't think it would look good with a larger size. I really liked the 470 yards, though, and understand why it's called "Lace" - it's probably intended for lacework, not scarves. I'm still learning . . .

                  One skein makes a beautiful cowl. The colors are vibrant and it is a pleasure to knit with this yarn. I have made cowls for friends using many of the colors and adding beads. Each one was prettier than the last.

                              Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

                              I truly loved working with this yarn. It was super soft and felt good in my hands. It had just the right about of stretch to make knitting with it quite enjoyable.

                              It does have variances in weight which could be a pro or a con, depending on what you are knitting. For my purposes, I loved the variations in weight from thin to somewhat thick.

                              I made a shawl with it, but I think it would make a lovely, soft, light-weight sweater. I will definitely purchase this yarn again.
