    Comments about Malabrigo Twist:

    This yarn is perfect for the hat I'm making, very soft and easy to work with. Unfortunately, there are a few weird spots of color patchiness. Also, I bought the burgundy shade, which is not even close to burgundy, but more like a dark rust. It's pretty, but not at all what I was hoping for. I love the yarn though...very nice quality and softer than the Malabrigo yarns I've tried in the past.

    Comments about Malabrigo Twist:

    This light and soft yarn will generate a coat of fuzzy texture if you have to pull out a lot of rows over and over! Probably would felt well. Tip: work out a pattern problem on some scrap yarn. The sweater I am making is like a plump teddybear in my lap. Very plush and cosy. Shows stitch definition fairly well. Use rounded-tip needles as it will occasionally split. Not as tightly spun as some yarns. If you knit loosely, use a smaller needle since it has some especially slender areas. US 8 works well for even stitches that wiggle in closely together. Does not shed or pill. NOT scratchy! Pearl 10 had some dye lots that were pretty out there so look out for colour variance. Slightly heavier than usual worsted weight yarn, use best in thicker yarn applications.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I purchased in more than one order. Do not recall any problems.

                  Comments about Malabrigo Twist:

                  No, it wasn't a gift, but if anyone wants to show their love, they can do it with a gift of Malabrigo Twist. Slightly thick-thin texture is very forgiving and adapts well to multiple gauges, and baby merino has got to be the softest thing this side of heaven. This adds up to wear-next-to-skin garments and blankets of unsurpassed softness that knit up very quickly. Yes, it will probably pill a little, but that's a small price to pay for this loveliness. And of course - Malabrigo colors are beautiful - subtle or striking per your preference. I ordered "kettle-dyed solids" for an heirloom throw planned as a wedding gift, and couldn't be happier.
