    great yarn - perfect for next-to-skin

    I'm using this for a moebius shawl. The project has been tossed around for a couple of years. The yarn felts with work (it's about 1/2 silk) so I can do spit-joins but it hasn't compacted while I've made it wait.

    The pattern is a garter stitch with simple lace at intervals (from a Cat Bordhi pattern). Although a single, it shows the stitches well. I find it easy to knit (I'm using a size 7 Addi Turbo Lace needle). The yarn does not have a tendency to split; it flows easily through my fingers and around the needles. I like the way its multi colors display; there is no striping (an effect I didn't want), and the "pooling" is small - maybe a two-row "pool" (I like pooling, but only on the right project and this isn't it).

    I fully intend to work with it again. I think a new knitter could use it, as I don't find it takes any particular consideration.

    The only "con" (and I don't think of it that way) is that I don't think I'd use it for a felting project - but there are plenty of yarns to use for felting and, given the next-to-skin softness of this yarn, I would rather use it for shawls, hats, scarves, and perhaps sweaters.

    The color I purchased was very nice, but MUCH different from what I expected from the picture! I was a bit disappointed in the feel....it is soft, but no where near as soft as I had expected from a yarn with this much silk! The stitch definition is OK, but not great.

      Comments about Malabrigo Silky Merino:

      I absolutely love this yarn, the multi-hued colors are subtle, rich, and deep with a quiet sheen. When knitted up, the fabric has a nice drape and is ultra soft, delightful! I used this product in a multi-colored modular sweater so the variegated colors were perfect. This will be one of my go-to yarns in the future. It is softly spun so I expect that it may pill, time will tell.

        great yarn, the only con I can think of is that it sticks to itself. Beware of this if you roll the yarn into a ball yourself.

                I ordered this yarn way back in January and really forgot about it. Luckily, Webs didn't forget. I decided to knit a sweater and needed more yarn than I originally ordered and WEBS delivered. Thank you. The yarn is a dream to knit.

                  I have ALS and can barely knit. I'm still able to knit scarves. I. Thankful for that. I have lost a lot of things I love to do so this is one that I treasure . I love Malibrigo yarn. It's so soft and warm and the colors are vivid! Love it! Carol
