        Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

        I purchased 5 skeins to make a sweater. However, since the dye lots are all different, it didn't quite work out the way I thought it would. That said, the yarn is very nice and I am using two of the skeins for a lovely shawl. The others will become (variously): socks, mitts, scarves. Smaller, discrete projects.

            I am making a cardigan from Vogue knitting winter 2014-15 and it called for this yarn. I chose Impressionist Sky and it would go great with jeans. So far, I am very pleased with this yarn, I have never used it before and seems to perform well.

              While it is machine washable, I have better results with hand washing. If machine washed...don't forget to take them out and dump the whole load in the dryer.

                Bought this for a shawl pattern I like a lot, very soft and the color is beautiful. I think my problem is I just don't want to work with fingering yarn or a needle less than 8. Just prefer the feel of bigger yarn and love Malabrigo in other weights. Most would love this - just not my thing.

                  Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

                  This yarn was purchased to make some gloves for a customer of mine. I have used Malabrigo sock yarn several times, and have always been impressed. It has elasticity without sacrificing memory, it's soft, but still sturdy and hard-wearing. It is well worth the extra money, because the quality of the yarn is evident both in handling and in use. It comes in a beautiful array of colors, and works up quicker than one would think, due to how smooth and easy it is to work with. If I could consistently afford it, this would be my go-to sock yarn.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  No problems with delivery. Considering I ordered this around Christmas rush, its arrival was very quick.

                    Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

                    I read once that men are hunters and women are gatherers. In my case, this is so true. I gather bags of all shapes and sizes. Tins of small sizes to keep small items in. I once made stitch counters, then I saw them everywhere I looked. Especially hair products. So, "hunt" everywhere for your accessories. Stitch holders, stitch counters, etc. Always think outside the box and soon you will need a new box to live in.

                      I'm just one of a gazillion admirers of this brand. It's lovely & soft, the dyeing does not pool and I have yet to encounter a knot-join in a skein.
