Malabrigo Sock

Malabrigo Sock has beautiful, luminous color adorning a sock yarn so soft, you'll be tempted to use it for lace projects as well. The superwash merino fiber has a slight sheen that will take your breath away, making this yarn perfect for any special gift.

Note: As with all hand-dyed yarns, colors vary from dye lot to dye lot. The yarn color you receive may look different than the color pictured below, and the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

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

    I am knitting a Lucy Hague-designed blanket made up of many squares with Celtic cables. This yarn has such gorgeous, almost antique-looking colours, which blend together beautifully. It is so soft and a joy to knit with!

      Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

      Malabrigo sock is a great kettle dyed yarn in Malabrigo's stunning colorways, but the sock is a great workhorse yarn too. I have had terrible pilling with Mal. lace (not Silkpaca) but the sock is sturdy and doesn't pill (so far). It makes nice long-wearing shawls and sweaters. I have made lace crochet cardis and shawls with it.

      Recently Malabrigo seems to have tightened their twist in the yarn, and it's not quite as mushy soft as their older base. I happen to like the older base better because that looser twist looks better in lace crochet. But Malabrigo's colors can't be beat, and it's certainly cheaper than other hand-dyed luxury yarns so I can buy it in big quantities for large crochet garments which suck a lot more yarn than knitting! I always have to remember, though, that their dyelot batches differ HUGELY.

          Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

          I recently began knitting socks, after finishing many other kinds of knitted items. This yarn is good for a beginner. It's easy to distinguish individual stitches and easy to fix a mistake from the row below. My only complaint about this yarn at all would be that I was knitting two socks at once (from two skeins) and I didn't realize at first that the two skeins I bought were slightly different in shade, even though they were of the same dye lot. Otherwise, the yarn is really nice.

            I had no idea Yarn could be like this! It is near prefect! Yes the dye varies from skein to skein....but if you alternate using a couple of different skeins...it is not an issue...it is part of the beautiful dye they use.
            This is so soft...knits like a dream...has a nice drape to it....I cant say enough!

                  I had knit socks with this yarn (same colour: Boticelli Red) and loved it. I purchased more to make a Maple Leaf shaped shawl and another pair of socks. The tonal dye is beautiful without being overpowering. It blocks beautifully. It wears well. It has a great hand.

                    Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

                    I can't tell you how much I love this yarn! Like their Arroyo, Malbrigio's Sock yarn has stunning color and a texture that is truly a joy to knit with. Unlike so many of the other beautiful, hand-dyed yarns I've purchased, this doesn't split or shed and is wonderfully consistent in gauge throughout the hank.
